    >>> Currently looking for help starting December 20th or soon after <<<


    I am a single father with great and funny 9 year old twins. A boy and a girl! They speak Dutch, English and French.

    - French -
    We have a French speaking babysitter one day a week for three years now. That is why they understand a little French now. But I like to expose them to more French speaking people! Spending time with Indy and Wesley, talking French with them, maybe reading books with them, going to the park with them all will part of your stay here. you will have a good time with them and they will improve their French language skills.

    - English -
    My children speak English even better then French. Also because of babysitters but they go to an international School as well. Still it can be improved and if you are a good English speaker you are welcome to help my children improve their English!

    - German -
    We have a German au pair now. Also the children have been to German summer camp. SO the twins speak a little German now! Maybe you want to help to improve?

    So I am looking for somebody who likes to help out with the children, and also with keeping the house clean and organized. Also bringing the children to school and collecting them again is part of your work.

    We want you to be part of our family! So join us on family activities, swimming, going to parks, a playground, shopping or other things. Also you will have enough time to have your own activities. Go visit other towns or visit places.

    We live in the North of Eindhoven, close to a park, not to close to the city center.
    We live a little bit low budget live; try to safe energy a bit and we have a lot of second hand things.

    What we do NOT like:
    > People who are on their phone all the time. I hate that, please keep that out of our lives.
    > Smoking/drinking/drugs
    > Please don't stay in your bed till 12th o'clock in the afternoon.

    Please note that we have to small pats in our house: two cute little rats!

    ABOUT THE TWINS
    Indy and Wesley are 9 year old twins. Their mother is from India but we have no contact with her anymore..
    Indy and Wesley are twins, born in March 2011.
    They are happy children and make contact and they like to make new friends.
    They sing in the national children's choir and they try to play the violin.

    LANGUAGES
    We speak Dutch at home, but the twins speak English very well because they go to an international school.
    Also they understand some French because of French speaking babysitters and some visits to friends in France..
    We like it if our guest talk a lot with the children so their French and English improve!
