Hello! We are a family of 5 – myself, my partner, our 9 year old son, 7 year old daughter, and 1 year old son. We are looking for someone to help with child care for our 1 year old (big kids will be in school) and with some light cleaning/house help/meal prep.
We live on beautiful Salt Spring Island, on a 5 acre homestead in the southern part of the island. We have a big garden and chickens, and we are building a cabin and doing renovations. We are next to Ruckle Provincial Park and heritage farm which is a popular place for tourists and locals alike. There are stunning forested and beachside trails nearby. Biking, hiking, paddling and swimming are just some of the outdoor activities you can enjoy here.
We look forward to hearing from you!

We have travelled extensively and lived overseas in the past and love connecting with people from other parts of the country and world. I used to teach English as an additional language and am interested in learning languages and about other cultures.
We love spending time outdoors, hiking, paddling, biking, camping, growing, preserving and preparing good food and would be happy to share that with you!
We aim to provide a fun, supportive environment for you during your stay. Tell us what's important to you and we'll do our best to support that.

Child care would involve taking care of our 1 year old: playing with him inside and outside, going to the playground, going for walks, reading books, changing diapers, putting him down for his nap, and feeding him snacks and meals. You should be patient and gentle, and like children. We will have a regular schedule for child care, 3-4 days a week (weekdays). Bonus if you are fluent in Japanese!
Ideally, we are seeking someone who is able to stay longer term, for 4+ months, but this is flexible. Preference to people with child care experience, especially toddlers. There may also be opportunities to help in our veggie garden, around the property or with renovations. We are also open to hosting a couple – one person to do child care, and the other to help with the handy work around the property and renovations.

We have a private converted school bus to offer. It has a double bed, kitchen, dining area, wood stove, large deck, hot and cold water, electricity and an outhouse. It is separate from our living space. Access to the shower would be from our home. We can provide meals, or you have the option to prepare your own meals, but we would also like to share meals together. A bike would be available for you to use.
Salt Spring is a popular tourist destination in the summer and is known for being an artsy community with a passion for sustainability. The town is about a 20 min drive away from where we live, and public transit is limited to the peak season (summer). The area would suit someone who loves nature, rural settings and who is independent.

We can discuss whether pets would be a good fit. Must be good with children and chickens.
