The Role

We are looking for a special Mary Poppins for our little boy who is 4.  Someone who:

  • is fun but tidy
  • likes messy play but is clean and conscientious
  • likes to read
  • has good upper body strength to give cuddles and lifts
  • likes warm pools and a gentle bounce on a real trampoline
  • is kind and careful
  • can be an all-round family help – light housework including ironing and cleaning a child’s room and

Our boy’s Mary Poppins will want to play with him, but know when to let him rest whilst magically keeping the room ‘spic and span’!
Sound like qualities you have?

Come and support me.  I’m only 4 and trapped in a body that doesn’t work.  I do have a wicked sense of humour for a 4 year old that can’t talk – I will always make you laugh when I do.  When I smile the whole room lights up.
I have some medical needs that you will require special training for.  This will be easy if you’re the right person with a kind ‘can do’ attitude. Experience not essential as full training will be given.
