  • Description


    We are a family of 3 residing for 3 months in Germany from the end of January. We are an international family from New Zealand and the Netherlands. Our little girl is 3 years old and speaks mainly Dutch but its okay for her to learn more English. We are a happy and relaxed family. Easy going. We are relaxed about work hours etc. All in good communication. We like to go on fun outings, a bit of gardening, enjoy nature, music. Mostly eat vegetarian and like an organic lifestyle.

    We are looking for a mature, reliable and independent person to help us out with the daily tasks around the house, shopping, some cooking but mostly childcare. Its really important you love kids and are experienced with them,, like to play/ be creative etc. If you know Dutch its a plus. Its ideal if you can stay with us for up to 3 months or a bit longer. Starting in January.

    In return you get a separate room for you, a nice cultural exchange and we take you on outings etc. We have been workawayers ourselfs so have a good idea about what to offer and what is fun for you to experience.

    We are relaxed people, every day is different. We like dancing, reading, going places, spending time outside, some yoga, eating mostly biological but not too strict. We are well traveled and love learning about new cultures and countries. We like to go and visit places so you are welcome to come along. No smoking, accessive drinking and or drugs please, there is a baby living in the house!
