  • Description


    Hi, my wife and I are 35 years old and we have two children- one will be approaching 4 years old and one will be just over a year. We departed London in Jan 20 to move to the Hague for a few years with work. My wife has a full time job and I have taken a career break and work part time out here.

    In 2018 we had a work away for 10 months and in 2019 for 2 months and both were great successes and we really enjoyed them staying. The eldest son is a happy and funny character and will keep many on their toes and the younger is developing a little personality.

    The eldest son is at preschool, however, we hope to have help during the summer holidays to assist in keeping him occupied or assisting in keeping the house and admin going.

    We will gladly assist you in enhancing your English and providing support in your hobbies or interests and there should be plenty of time to explore and pursue your own interests.
