YOU would only be working 2-3 days (24 hour shifts) a week, days are sort of fixed but we may be able to swap some now to suit for right person.

The boys thoroughly enjoy this time, as they get a break from the other two children who they find stressful and noisy - so your job is to make them feel like its a special holiday for them and 100% fun.
