About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

Located in central ontario, we live on a small hobby farm and are both self employed. We have 2 children and are looking for an au pair to watch the kids while we are working, as well as on the occasional evening or weekend while we go out.
We are a very active family and love being outdoors, so we would ideally like to find someone who shares our energy and would enjoy taking our kids to playgroups, the local lakes and beaches, on walks etc. A drivers licence will be a necessity in order to do most of these things as we live just outside of town.
We would like to find someone who would stay with us for at least a year, preferably with a start date at the beginning of 2018.
In addition to watching the kids, duties would include tidying up after the kids, and preparing and cooking meals for them while they are in your care.

We are a young couple with 2 kids. we have been married for almost 5 years; our kids are 2 years old and 2 months old (though when working for us they would be 3 and 1). We are both self employed; Dan has an automotive repair shop on our property and Ashleigh is a Farrier. We are all very active people and prefer to spend our time outdoors.
Our hobby farm consists of a range of animals that is always changing in numbers. We enjoy atving, snowmobiling, and horseback riding on our property and in the neighbouring fields.
