Branch North Vancouver BC CA
Caregiver to three children
North Vancouver, BC
Observe preschooler and prepare daily reports of activities, naps and toilet activities and his general mood for us….
We are a happy and calm family of three one week and a very busy family of five the next week, alternating week over week. Our 24month old son is in the home all the time and there are two teenagers, aged 14 and 15 that are with us every other week from a previous marriage.
We value a gentle disposition in our potential caregiver but one who can also instruct and interact with teenagers competently.
Your workday will be 7am to 5pm, three days per week, Tues Wed Thurs and flexible, with notice, to work Mon Tues Wed as needed. At this time there are not more than 30hrs per week available. If you are looking for more than 30 hrs per week with one family/job please apply with a family that can offer this to you. We will only need a caregiver until our son is school-age.
We also require strong English language skills in our caregiver; writing, reading, speaking and understanding. ESL applicants are invited if they possess strong English language skills.
Experience as a paid, unsupervised caregiver to preschoolers and teenagers needed. Education is an asset but not required.
Because we are busy it is important that our potential caregiver can prepare dinner regularly as planned and be prepared to drive or pick up the older children to and from school and activities as occasionally needed. Your driving record and transportation method will be discussed to determine how to best meet this requirement.
