  • Description


    We are a Mexican/English/Israeli family with one toddler and one on the way. My wife is the kids' dad because she is trans, please be cool with that before you apply.

    My name is Aya and I'm supposed to be working from home - which is impossible nowadays since the kiddo will eat wires if not constantly supervised-. So we could really do with someone to be around and keep him from eating things he shouldn't and help him eat things he should for good measure.

    -For shorter stays, we prefer last-minute requests
    -For longer stays, if you have leave to remain in the UK then we can also talk about paying a bit for some extra hours and treating it as an Aupair arrangement.

    If you can actually get to England at the moment or are already here then check out Henley-on-Thames, we live in a small country village with easy enough ways to get to both London and Oxford. We can offer a lot of flexibility time-wise so if you need to take classes or work online etc. or just want to do some traveling around then we'll be a good fit. We can drive you to town/stations if needed.

  • Help


    There are lots of things that can be done and we'll let you take your pick depending on your interests:

    Keeping the toddler safe and happy - helping feed him and lots of playing. - this one is mandatory actually

    Help around the house - mostly cleaning up food that gets thrown at walls and endless picking up anything dangerous near floor level.

    If you are so inclined, we would love you to do some cooking.

    Gardening, we have a small chaos outside and plan to do lots of fun garden design and plenty of chopping things down to size
