  • Description


    We live in a small city Chilliwack, approximately 1.5hours from the heart of downtown Vancouver.
    My name is Mel (mom) I am 28 years old. I work for a company and am hoping to take the kids out of their current daycare and have them at home playing and doing crafts. My husband Taylor (dad) is 30 years old he has his own company. We have a busy lifestyle and constantly are up to something. We are lucky because even though we both work full time we find that we have flexible schedules to still be present with the kids.
    Our son Grehy who is turning 6! is in Kindergarten. Our daughter Georgia is 4! Our youngest son Lachlan is turning 3! Our dog Kulah is a 9 year old German Shepherd. We mostly take him to work with us but he is very loved by the whole family.

    Our goal is to take Georgia and Lachlan out of daycare and have them home with you. We still want them to have schedule and be going outside to the park and colouring/painting at home. I will be dropping Grehy off at school and he will be getting picked up and dropped off at home if I’m not already home from work. It’s a bonus if you have a drivers license because you can borrow the vehicle or take the kids out to do things.
    We are hopeful that light house work can be done. It’s also a plus for you to bake with the kids, I know they would love that! Our family is healthy… I am basically Vegan, my husband eats meat. I do the cooking in the house but some nights if you wanted to help out, I would love that!! Dinner is always cooked but breakfast/lunch is kind of a fend for yourself. Weekends we do brunches. We are a very easy going family! We like to go with the flow. We thrive off a clean and organized home. And we enjoy good meals and company.

    You will have your own bedroom downstairs by the front door. We will make it as cozy and comfortable for you as possible! We want this to feel like your home too! The bathroom is upstairs that you will be using but we have child locks on the cupboards so your belongings can be tucked away without anyone touching them.

    Honestly just looking for an extra set of hands and someone to be at home when the kids wake up because we will most likely already be gone for the day to work. I don’t want to jinx it but our children are good sleepers… when they aren’t being woken up for daycare they wake up around 8:30-9am and we like to have them in bed around 8:30pm. I hope we are a good fit for your lifestyle too! Please message with any questions, can’t wait to meet you!

    We are looking for someone that has experience with children to help us with our 3 kids and with light housework. We also have a 7 year old German Shepherd that, if wanted, could be taken for walks/hikes. We have a daughter, so at this time we are looking for someone to care for the children and with good enough english to communicate with our kids. :)

    We have a bus stop a few feet away from our house so transit is easy. We have the ebus to travel all around the lower mainland and beyond for very reasonable prices as well. Vancouver is only an hour away from us. Our house backs onto a mountain with lots of hiking and trails steps away. Chilliwack has lots of natural beauty.
