Looking for a full time nanny for an awesome family! — Archived

Family in Barrie

Hello! My wife and I are looking for a nanny for our 3 boys ages 7, 10, and 11. They are loving kids and are very affectionate. They love to be active and get out of the house and/or crafts and such. They love cuddling up for a show or movie too and certainly like their video games (in moderation) but it's all about balance I think. In the summer, it's all about play, hanging out and going out for great adventures! The hours are 7:30 to 6pm during the summer months. In the winter, you would be responsible for the morning routine (7:30-8:45) and getting them ready and off on the school bus safely. In the afternoon, you are responsible for getting them off the bus (3:00), getting them to do any homework, reading and writing mostly. Then get them fed and just taking great care of them. Between when they leave and when they get back, well, we are looking for someone to replace the role my wife had for 8 years and be that stay at home Mom. That means that the cleaning, organization, grocery shopping and cooking are all included. I know there are less than glamorous parts of the job. No one love cleaning washrooms but it's part of the job. No one loves doing, folding and putting away laundry but it's part of the job. No, you don't have to shovel, mow, paint or any of the other things that are not normally part of a parent at home role but dealing with homework, tears, sick kids, snow days and discipline (like sending to rooms, saying sorry, etc) are all part of it. We need help RAISING our children, not just watching them. We need help running the home in all areas that that entails, not just someone to come and do the least amount possible. My wife and I get home around 6:00. We both work and when we get home, we just kind of want to play with the kids, read stories, go for a walk, take them to hockey, swimming or whatever they have going on. We live in the Ardagh and Mapleton area near St. Joan of Arc high school. The perfect person for us will be someone that loves kids and actually likes spending time with them. You like the idea of being integrated into a family. You are energetic, reliable, punctual and responsible. We are putting you in charge of our children and our home, we want someone awesome! As I said above, and I emphasize, this role isn't just about taking care of kids, it's taking care of our family and home. If one of the kids is sick, you will have that one for the day. March Break, summers and part of the Christmas break, you will have them full time although they all go to camp at different times so it would be a lighter load. You will be making dinner every day, you'll be doing laundry, folding and putting away. You'll do the cleaning. You'll take the kids out for awesome adventures. You might run some errands. You are responsible for everything :) So, if you are looking for a nice, fun loving, family to join, drop us an email! We want to have the right someone and are willing to wait for the right fit. Thanks and hope to talk to you soon! Krista & Paul
