Job Description

You will be there predominantly to look after Phoenix (2.5) while Tanya is working and at college. The older girls are self sufficient but would be good if you get on well.

We need someone with a gentle approach, who is warm and caring (we don't care about Phoenix learning her numbers), but with someone who she can trust, have fun with and can look after her emotional needs. I teach about attachment, so will look to develop a lasting relationship between Phoenix and her new carer.

Tuesdays: 8am – 6pm
Wednesday: 8:30 – 1:30pm
Thursdays: 8:30 – 1:30pm
Total 25 – 30 hrs per week, flexibility needed for Tanya private work from home.

Plus be prepared to babysit up to twice a week. This is simply staying in after Phoenix has gone to bed at 8pm.


Phoenix duty – playgroups/ play ground/ play/ fun and laughter. I want someone who will get down and dirty and have fun.

Dog – we will hopefully be getting a new puppy this year. So duty will include puppy care and walking.

Making sure the Phoenix gets outside each day – park, friend’s house, library, etc You can’t be scared of the English weather. We live near beautiful forests and parks and expect you to get outside.
