Nanny Job in Vancouver, British Columbia

Seeking parents’ helper Hi! I am a working parent with two bright, funny kids. We live in a condo in Kits, just steps from the beach and shops. I am seeking a parent’s helper for late afternoon/early evening on Sundays or maybe another afternoon. 2-4 hours, depending on your availability. If it goes well, there’s the opportunity to add other time(s). This is ideal for someone interested in learning about special needs and the practical impact on families. I am really open to sharing information about services we have accessed and our experience, so this can be a good learning opportunity for someone who likes to build relationships. There's also the opportunity to do some occasional childcare on evenings or weekends. I am open to figuring how to make this work for you too. I will be working from home while you are here. This is designated quiet activity time for my kids, who should be working on their homework or independent projects. They are 9.5- and 12 year-old boys who are interested in science, social justice, politics and and Minecraft. My 12yo loves reading and should be working on homework projects in the evening or having some screen time. My 9yo loves making slime, baking, science experiments, skateboarding and Minecraft. Both kids have multiple medical challenges that create a lot of organizational and cleaning challenges. So, while you’re here, I am seeking childcare support that addresses this. We already have the support of behaviour consultant, behaviour interventionists and a full medical and therapy team. What we need is some very targeted and practical support to take some pressure off me and let me do some office work or check my email while you’re here. So, while you need to be aware of and informed about their special needs, I am anticipating that we set things up so that you can concentrate on the parent helper aspects of this childcare work. What I need is someone who can help us with: • Putting the kids’ safety and well being first • Maintaining a warm, cheerful, positive manner • Being flexible about goals for your time and being proactive about what to do while you’re here, with some direction from me • Supervising children’s screen time, activities, homework or snacks, but with the idea that this is independent free time for them • Sweeping • Wiping down tables, counters and other surfaces • Vacuuming • Organizing toys • Cleaning up science experiments and slime (9yo expected to help with this) • Assembling lunch kits • Help with meal preparation • Running errands (we live a block from shops) • Loading/unloading dishwasher from kids’ meals • Hand washing some dishes • Loading/unloading washing machine with kids’ clothing and linens • Sorting, folding and putting away kids’ laundry • Taking out recycling and garbage • Organizing paperwork • Other tasks that may come up You must be fluent in English and legally allowed to work in Canada. You must be 19 and have at least a high school education. Experience, reference and criminal records check preferred. Now all the boring legal stuff....This is an independent contractor opportunity, not a job. You will need to invoice and provide receipts and sign agreements required for any funding/grants I receive, so you need to be declaring your income and legally entitled to work in Canada. :) This is a live out contractor situation. To apply, include your expected hourly rate, your resume and cover letter, and availability and we can go from there. I believe in liveable wages and recognize that the hours are shorter, so please let me know what you think is fair for your experience and skills. I value skilled caregivers. Looking forward to meeting you! Thanks for reading.
