Inter-city homestay with friendly family who require help with young children, light domestics and over-enthusiastic garden.

Our family:
We are a busy urban family of 5:
MI (dad and general keeper of sanity) works full time from home in IT,
MA (mum and general creator of fun) works part time in HR,
GA (13 year old girl) is an avid coder and football player,
EL (3 year old girl) has an exuberant sense of creativity
RJ (almost 1 year old boy) is sweet as apple pie

Our house:
We live in a big old house (with a new kitchen/living) a short walk from the center of Hobart and with easy access to bush and bus for exploring this fabulous city. We eat extremely well (MA used to be a chef) mostly from locally grown produce, and top end meat and dairy. We are fairly active in our local community and try and get out most weekends - where appropriate you will be welcome to join us and our friends in these experiences. We are hoping to re-start our vegetable growing this spring. We don't watch TV but do have plenty of high speed Internet, and play board games, talk, play music, etc.

Who we are looking for:
-must be friendly, speak good English, and like bright/gifted children (and can tolerate somewhat intellectual adults)
-longer term guests (2 week minimum usually)
-some desire to explore Hobart independently
-ideally morning people :)

You: 28hrs of your time per week (ie. an average of 4hrs/day) to be worked flexibly as agreed upon doing child-care and help with the younger kids as well as general assistance with the house and garden

Us: Room and board:
-a fully furnished private room and shared bathroom (including high speed internet, use of a Chromebook if desired, central heating etc...)

If you choose to contact us please include:
-Your arrival and departure dates
-Any experience working with children (including family)
-Your general interests, skills and experience
-Any special dietary requirements
-Why you have chosen our profile to reply to
