Our home is filled with love, laughter and lots of kisses, and we would like welcome you in it for a while! Our family consists of Jos, Elisabeth, Isaiah (6 years old), Azarja (4 years old), Elim (2 years old) and our little baby Tobin. Jos works as a judge and loves running, playing silly games with the kids, BBQs with friends and taking long hot baths (we have a big bathtub, feel free to use it!). Elisabeth is a psychologist but nowadays mostly a stay-at-home mom. Elisabeth loves her family, reading, cooking, the beautiful flowers and trees in our garden, hosting dinner parties, dancing, singing and doing outdoor gymnastics with other women in the beautiful nature surrounding our small village. Isaiah is a smart and sensitive chatterbox who is fond of rockets and volcanoes. He also loves books, playing with his Legos and playing outside. When he grows up, he wants to be an astronaut, a military man and a policeman. Azarja is a very cheerful, social and sometimes naughty four year old. He loves cuddling, reading books, singing, playing outside and cats. Elim is an energetic toddler who loves to climb on everything. And the whole family loves God.
Babysitten und Kinderbetreuung
We love telling you about how things work in the Netherlands. Jos knows a lot about law, Christian theology, the army and politics. And I, Elisabeth, can tell you about social relationships and the way people function psychologically in the Netherlands. And we’re very curious about your country of origin! And of course you’ll be able so see a Dutch family from the inside.

Surely we can manage but as a family with small children, it is always busy. I, Elisabeth, enjoy being a mom and housewife, but I haven’t slept enough for quite some years now and it feels like I’m always running from chore to chore when Jos is off to work. So we would be very happy with someone caring and gentle who helps out during the busiest times of the day (like getting the kids ready for school in the morning). Someone who entertains the children while I can finish some overdue chores, take a nap or just have some me time. And who does some light tasks in the house (like vacuüm cleaning, hanging and folding laundry, cleaning the kitchen and stuff like that) or in the garden while I spend some more time with the kids without having to tell them: ‘mommy is busy now’.
It would be lovely if you would like to engage in our family life, are patient with fussy, cranky small children (they do have their difficult moments! but mostly they are lovely ;-)) and bring a cheerful personality with you.
Also the world can sometimes feel a bit small as a stay-at-home mom, so I enjoy meeting other people from a different culture, learning from them, being inspired by stories and maybe exchanging local recipes :-).
We have a preference for female workawayers, because you'll be spending most of the time with me, Elisabeth, and in our boys-only household, I could use some extra girlpower ;-). But if you are a man and you think you'll be a perfect match to our family, do send us a message!

We live in an old but thoroughly renovated vicars home in Asperen, a rural village surrounded by rivers (in which you can swim or go canoeing) apple trees and forts (the Hollandic Water Line touches our village). Our church dates from 1460, so there’s quite a lot of history here. We have a small spare room on the ground floor for you, with a big window, and a toilet nearby, and where you probably won’t be disturbed by our night owl children because we sleep on the first floor. You can join every family meal, but if our eating hours don’t suit your plans, you can also take something to eat at another time, no problem, we’re flexible. We eat lots of vegetables (in the summer mostly from our own garden) and we do eat meat (preferably organic), but if you like to eat vegetarian, that can easily be arranged.
We like to talk, but that doesn’t mean we have to talk all day long. Elisabeth is quite introverted and really enjoys some quiet time, so you can feel free not to socialize all the time and spend time reading, walking (by yourself or together with our family), bicycling, sitting in the garden or anything you like. There is a small city on walking distance (about 30 minutes, or you can go by bus), called Leerdam. Leerdam has a train station. We live in the centre of the Netherlands so you can make day trips to Utrecht, ‘s Hertogenbosch, Amsterdam or Rotterdam if you like.
We promise we’ll do our best to make sure you will feel welcome in our family and that you have a good time in the Netherlands!
