    Description

    Hi, my wife and I are 38 years old and we have two children- one is 6 years old and the other 3 years.

    In 2018 we had a work away for 11 months and in 2019 for 2 months and both were great successes and we really enjoyed them staying. Both boys are great fun.

    Both boys are at a school 5km away and are dropped and collected by Cargo Bike. We need a few weeks of help in the end of Nov into Dec this year in collecting the children after school and looking after them.

    My wife works in diplomatic community and I work in the UK and commute. We have a great au pair currently who leaves in Nov and a new one starts in Dec. We need help to cover the short gap. You would see The Hague as it approaches Christmas with a lovely festive side to it.

    You would have your own room and shower room. Please let me know if you have any questions.
