35hrs p/w term time only | Devizes, Wiltshire | 3 September start

Freckles have a gorgeous family with three lovely kids; 8yo boy, 7yo girl and 4yo girl who currently live in Pewsey but they're moving to Devizes in Spring 2019 - so we think it's best to focus on Devizes! They also have the most adorable, cuddly and snuggly dog ever. She is called Nelly and she's a golden retriever. 

Mum is a teacher and is heading back to work at the beginning of September and Dad is in the army so travels a lot. The role is Monday - Friday; 7hrs p/d and can be split how you like but with the core hours being 7-9am and then 3-6pm. The role is state term time only (39 weeks) with some work available in the holidays depending on what the family are up to and what you're plans are.

The children are great. Their eldest has some learning difficulties and autism but he is pretty easy going really - providing the routine is there and Mum will show you exactly how to cope. The girls are so darling and wanted to play lots of snakes and ladders, shops and singing along to Frozen when I popped over. 

The 8yo is at a special needs school and he has a taxi taking him to and from school each day. The 7yo is at a lovely primary school which is a 15 minute drive from both Devizes and Pewsey and the youngest goes to a preschool forest school which she loves! 

You need to be super organised to help manage the 3 school diaries, plus Mum and Dads calendars. You also need to be fun loving, up for adventures and calm and loving. We would ideally like to do some settling in days over the summer and possibly even some days shadowing Mum doing the school runs in July. before the summer hols start. 

We are looking for someone creative, engaging, warm and cuddly but you do need to have firm boundaries! The 7yo loves drawing, playing with her dolls and dressing up and she is totally obsessed with rabbits! Their 8yo needs his downtime after school and he likes to chill in his room and play on his ipad or read a book to relax. The 4yo is super easy going - loves a good game and adores her ballet!

This is an amazing opportunity for someone to become part of a busy, kind and loving family. If you're not yet registered with Freckles simply send us a copy of your CV and cover letter to kayas@freckleschildcare.co.uk and we can go from there.
