We are looking for a responsible and experienced babysitter to care for two children, aged 7 and 9, at our home. In this role, you will be required to supervise the children's activities, prepare and serve lunch and snacks, and tidy up after meals. You will also need to take the children to the local community pool, and on walks to the park, so a confident swimmer and a keen walker would be great assets.
The successful candidate will be expected to engage with the children in a fun and educational way; encouraging creative play, arts and crafts, and indoor and outdoor games. Flexibility, a positive attitude, and the ability to be self-motivated are essential qualities as you will need to adapt to changing situations, stay on top of tasks, and be proactive in arranging activities and games.
