    We are a family of four living on a beautiful forested 5-acre mountain-side property in Abbotsford BC Canada. We are looking for a woman to provide childcare and light housekeeping help in our home 3-5 days per week. Our childcare needs fluctuate from week to week, and many times there are stretches of 3-5 days where we wouldn't require childcare, which would accommodate day/multi-day trips to nearby destinations such as Vancouver, Seattle WA, Portland OR, Whistler BC, Victoria BC, etc...

    Our family consists of :
    Jolene - a full-time student completing the final year of her Masters of Counselling Degree
    Benny - a Mental Health Nurse working in the local hospital
    Buddy - An energetic 5-year old that is in Kindergarten
    Arlo - A sweet and entertaining 3-year old that loves to smile and make people laugh
    Chester (dog) - 5-year old Border Collie cross

    We live in a 5-bedroom house in a rural area on a mountain about 10 minutes from downtown Abbotsford and one hour from downtown Vancouver.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    We are an open-minded family with a wide range of interests and attend all kinds of cultural events throughout the year. In the past we have brought our children and exchange students to things like First Nations Powwows and South Asian Diwali celebrations. They have the opportunity to spend lots of time exploring all of the best things of British Columbia, we have world-class hiking, mountain-biking, and fishing minutes from our front door.

    We are looking for help with:

    Childcare: daytime childcare help 2-3 days per week while Jolene and Benny are busy with school and work. This would basically involve and having fun with the kids (playing soccer, going to parks, going for bike rides, etc...) and driving Buddy to/from school (5 minute drive).

    Light housekeeping: Washing dishes, vaccuming/sweeping, laundry, helping to prepare meals.

    You will be staying in a private bedroom in the basement of our home with a separate bathroom. Our beautiful home is located on the side of a mountain, with a breath-taking view of Mt. Baker. We live on 5-acres of forest with a large pond teeming with koi fish. In the home we have a large snooker (pool) table, a hot-tub, comfortable sitting area with large tv, and a rustic wood-stove that warms the house all winter. We love to hike, cook good food, tend the garden, watch movies, play soccer, read, play games, play music, relax in the hot tub, and play outside.

    We keep the home well stocked with lots of fresh fruit, vegetables and staples. We eat a healthy and well-balanced diet, and in the summer our table is often filled with fresh veggies from our vegetable garden. You're welcome to help yourself to any of the food in the kitchen, to join us for meals, or to prepare food for yourself if you prefer.
