we are looking for a local person who can carry out childcare (well, teen-care actually), on an adhoc basis when required.

we live in komokoriki hill road & we have two teens (aged 15 & 14), the eldest being our daughter & youngest our son- they go to kaipara college in helensville.

occasionally I have meetings out of area and am then unable to pick up the kids from the school bus at 3.50pm (at the old firestation on west coast road). this is only a problem mon-weds as my husband is able to cover for me thursdays & fridays.

so we are looking for someone mature & experienced (ie not a teenager!) who can do the occasional pick-up & take the kids to our home & be here with them until I get home, which usually wouldn’t be much later than about 6pm, depending on where i have to go. they are pretty self-sufficient & well-behaved & can carry on with their normal tasks so don’t need entertaining or occupying, just adult supervision.

occasionally we also need overnight stays as well if I have to be out of town for a few days, & we have a very comfortable sleep-out available for this.

at the moment I am particularly looking for someone who can do the afternoon pick-ups with overnight stays from monday23rd to weds25th May incl (ie 2 nights & 3 pick-ups).

hopefully this will turn into an ongoing relationship with the opportunity for occasional evenings out for my husband & I too!

please contact bev trowbridge on [email protected] if you are interested.
p.s. we live on a beautiful organic farm.
