Full-time Solecharge Nanny/Housekeeper

Caring for two boys aged 6 and 8 yrs, Monday to Friday from 12pm to 7pm.  I often work late as the Mother is a Coporate Solicitor and often works late which I dont mind as I like to assist when needed.  I am responsible for household management including ensuring the common areas of the house are kept clean and tidy, laundry, running errands, groceries etc.  I collect the boys from school, attend after school activities/sports/lessons, assist with homework and readers, prepare afternoon tea and evening meal and prepare the boys for bed.  I play games, puzzles, music, reading, board games and walks to the park.  A lovely family which I have become a part of.
