We are a Canadian/Dutch family. Mom (Dutch), Dad (Canadian) a 9 year old son and a almost 2 year old son.
Starting next week our oldest will not go to school anymore and we are starting a unschool/ homeschool adventure. Some new laws around our medical choices we made are changing. We don’t want to go along with those, what makes it not possible to stay in the school system. In a way a good thing, as also the curriculum they teach at school is not what we want our child to be around. We are looking for people that want to follow our children’s interest/ passions and show them your passion/ skills. Like making music, dancing, cooking, gardening, woodwork, writing stories, drawing, the ideas are endless.
We live in the middle of a nature park on a lake and love to explore our forrest around us. It’s half a hour/ 40 minutes away from town, with the nearest bus stop 4 kilometres away. We are always open to give you a lift or lend you our bike or car.
We like healthy food, believe in nutrition above pharmaceuticals. We are not vegetarian but don't eat a lot of meat. We have a cressed gekko as our pet :-). Not a lot of work, but hanging out with him and our son would be great! He is lonely in his tank.
Looking forward to hear from you!

Help in the house
A different way of life with unschooling our kids. Two cultures in one family.
Our house and garden is a great place to be in nature and close to the city. We like to have people around, share healthy meals, play games, be creative.
We can help you find fun/ interesting things to do in Victoria that might not be the usual tourist stuff. Or go together to explore our beautiful surroundings.
We are looking for people that understand our choice to unschool and are willing to be with our children and follow their passion and make fun and good connections. Share you life skills and your culture.
We have a private nice, but still a little unfinished ( could use some pictures in the wall and curtain on the window) room with a king size bed, big closet space and couch. You have your own bathroom with a shower.
Victoria is a great place to visit you can go on a whale watching trip, great biking and walking possibilities, museums, local markets, beaches abound, butterfly garden, flower gardens, nature parks, camping and lots of nice weather to enjoy!
We are considerate, casual, creative people that like to be around other people.
