This great shared care role comes with a flexible working schedule to work around your needs. Mum can offer, before and after school with a time table looking something similar to Term time Mon - Fri 7.30 - 9.30am and 2.45 - 7pm and Holidays Mon - Fri 8am - 7pm. Or they can do 3 splits, one full day and one afternoon. All options up for discussion to make it work.
We have four children: girl (7), boy (5) and twin girls (2.5 years). I am at home as a small business owner, so this is a mixture of shared care and sole charge. It would never be sole charge of all four children, mostly 2 at a time and sometimes 3. We need someone who is capable of looking after the twins on their own, but also happy to work alongside me with them and also able to do school pick ups/drop offs, homework and fun activities for the older two. No day is the same, as this is a busy household, so we are just looking for someone who can muck in and become part of the family.
We need someone who is organised, energetic, fun but firm who enjoys working with a mixture of ages. Patience and initiative will also be useful, especially with the twins. We would like someone kind and caring who loves children but can also get along with me and work as a team.
