About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

Looking for child care help for up to 4 hours a day in the afternoons primarily. We live on a beautiful farm in the district of Wairarapa. Only 5 minutes from two lovely little villages of Martinborough and Greytown. Two children, 5 years (girl) and 2.5 years (boy), who are both in daycare or school from 8.30am til 2.30pm. We would love some help after school til dinner/bed time at 7pm. We can offer some paid farm work or physical labour work during the day, to the right person or help you in to part time work if you so wish. February start, preferably for a month minimum up to 5months. Private double bedroom with shared bathroom with the kids available. Wifi and personal tv in room.

We are farmers, I do freelance work away from home time to time. But primarily farm work at home. We play tennis in summer and squash in winter and enjoy lots of outdoor activities with the kids.
