Drop-In or Scheduled Childcare


15 simbi per hour

I will watch your children in my home or trade fresh organic produce for your services! We just built a large greenhouse and will have produce year round.

Training & Qualifications

12+ years of nannying full time in other peoples homes (including 18m of au-pairing in the French Alps and also one year as a special needs assistant at a middle school) before I had two kids of my own.

Availability & Preferences

Often available last minute but scheduling in advance guarantees a spot for your kid to come and play with us. Also, we try and eat mostly organic, no television while friends are over and are breastmilk/cloth diaper friendly! Even if it's rainy we try and get out for little bit every day, for everyones sanity :)

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Trista Schmerber

Hi! My jack of all trades husband and I thought it wise to buy an old house and have kids right away when we got married in 2012. Warp speed to current time where you'll find Zach working on our 1919 ...fixer upper in St Johns while I wrangle our two small girls and tirelessly keep them away from the hack saws. After providing childcare for families outside of the house for 14+ years, I have started a casual drop-in day care out of ours. We have a giant play structure, large garden, 9 chickens, a badass greenhouse, loads of organic goodies growing in the yard and plenty of toys to keep kids of all ages happy. (We are also smitten for sushi, brewing beer, bicycles, live music, hiking, surfing and binge watching Netflix when the stars align.) We are constantly purchasing items from home improvement/gardening stores and will soon be remodeling our entire upstairs. Ideally we'd locate an architect/engineer/electrician that could trade us their services for my childcare offerings. We would also be interested in organic or free range meats, any bohemian type furnishings, yard furniture or decorations, house cleaning or even massage or haircuts. I babysit for several families in the neighborhood and have solid references. Cheers!show more
