  • Description


    Hi, my wife and I are 35 years old and we have two children- one 3 years old and one 5 month old. We both live in London and have quite varied and demanding commitments and some childcare support really helps us and improves our quality of life. We are looking for 1 person to stay from Sep - Nov 19.

    Last year we had a work away join us in April for 2 months, but stayed 10 months and was fantastic. We loved having her stay and our son adored her. The eldest son is a happy and funny character and will keep many on their toes and the younger is developing a little personality.

    We will gladly assist you in enhancing your English and providing support in your hobbies or interests in London. In addition, we are all moving to The Hague in 2020 so any Dutch volunteers are very especially welcome to apply.

    Our eldest son goes to nursery 4 days a week, which is only a walk a few minutes away. We need assistance in drop offs, pick ups and the occasional Friday/ weekend cover. In addition, a little support to my wife during maternity for her and the 5 month old is needed. We are looking at about 15 hours a week. The rest of the time is your own.
