Happy Summer Everyone โ˜€๏ธ

Our wonderful before and after school carer is retiring and we are looking for care for our Grade 1 girl.

We ideally would love care from about 8 am to drop off in the mornings and from pick up until about 4:30 pm

If anyone has any ideas or would like to earn a little extra money please contact me
