  • Description


    We are a fun-loving queer family, we enjoy walks to the park (not too long! lol) and like looking for insects (sometimes giant wetas!) and birds (always kaka and Tui near our house). My partner and I met doing an English degree so we have a big bookshelf and love reading to our 2 1/2 year old boys Max and Charlie. Even though we live next to a small forrest we are lucky to have an extremely central location. Literally a 5 min walk from the top of Cuba Street (a very cool and unique Wellington main street) and a 3min walk to Massey University. Tasteful, small studio apartment located under main house would be yours, it has a seperate entrance and garden. On the weekends we go to swimming lessons on Saturday mornings and on Sunday's Lesley takes the boys to visit her parent's on the Kāpiti coast.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We are very connected with our community and neighbours. We have large vege gardens and keep chickens. We are very centrally located. Wellington has been described as one of the world's most liveable cities. It is famous for a vibrant creative culture fuelled by great food, wine, craft beer, coffee and events, Wellington is a cosmopolitan city with an energetic personality. In terms of language, we live with my grandmother, who has been learning Te Reo for 5 years and is always speaking and singing in Māori with the boys as much as possible. She will happily teach vocab and exchange language with you as you care for the boys together. As a family we love travel and consider learning from other cultures an essential part of becoming a sophisticated and well-rounded person. Hosting travellers is a way for us and the boys to learn language and rituals of another culture.

    We have twin two and a half year old boys who are sweet as pie. My partner Lesley works full time at the Ministry of education and I will be starting back to work too- I work in the art department for film. Lesley and I meet studying English at University and we both love books. We need a warm, friendly caregiver preferably with childcare experience to look after Max and Charlie on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, as well as a few hours after daycare Wed and Fri. The boys' spritely and bubbly grandmother stays with us and will be there to consult and occasionally help with the boys if you need an extra pair of hands now and then. A drivers license would be useful, but is not essential.
