We are a very positive vegan family of four living in the gorgeous city of Haarlem. We have a row house in a green and quite neighborhood 8 km from the beach. We try to live sustainable lifestyle and it is important to us that you care about that too.
There is strict no smoking policy in our house. We have two daughters: Barbara 4,5 years old and Lilia 3 years old. We can offer you organic vegan meals and a single room in our house. We have a small garden that you can also enjoy.
Babysitting and creative play
Help around the house
You can learn from us how to live a less waste life, how to cook vegan and lower your environmental impact. Haarlem is a very beautiful city, well connected with Amsterdam, Utrecht and Den Haag. It takes 35 min by bike to the beach. You can see here how the Dutch are living but also meet a great deal of expats.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are looking for ONE person help to take care of the girls after preschool and school. At this moment I will be also at home, so we can connect and share the load together. We also have a mid-size dog, who has separation anxiety, so it would be nice if you could spend the morning around the house with him or maybe take him for a midday walk too.
You should be able to speak English, Dutch or Polish. ( we can also speak German but the girls don’t). We care about our girls and we need to find someone who shares our values. ( respect, love, peace, no violent communication, building self-esteem and independence).
The girls are fun and like to play outside, do some creative art or read books.
Ideally, we would like you to stay from January for 2 months or longer.
It would be nice if you have experience with kids or dogs.
