  • Description


    We are a lovely family living in a beautiful village called Innishannon, outside Cork city in the south west of Ireland. We have four children, their ages are 8, 6, 4 and almost 2 years old.
    We need help primarily to mind our 2 year old as he is at a very active stage of development. However he is in a great routine and loves his nap and his environment, therefore our preference is that we get help to mind him at home. I work nearby and finish work each day at 1.30. We hope that someone joins our family to help with everyday tasks in the home.

    We have a large garden, we grow our own vegetables and if you would like to help in the garden that would be great.
    We live just 5 mins walk from Innishannon village. It is only 10 mins from Kinsale and 5 mins from Bandon town and 25 mins from Cork city. We live in a spacious 4 bedroom house. We are looking for a kind, trustworthy person to help with taking care of our four children. We would also love if you could speak with our children in your native language. My husband works close by as an accountant and I work locally as a scientist.

    We pay pocketmoney.

    We are looking for someone who can stay a minimum of 3 months.

    We would like that the volunteer becomes part of our family and to be a positive role model for our children. We love gardening and we enjoy eating healthy food. It is important that your spoken English is at a good level. Optional, If you could play an instrument and could bring music into the home that would be fantastic.
