Pick-up children from school


I am looking for an English-speaking female to pick up my 8 and 6 years-old daughters from the bus stop after school, take them home and stay until we return from work (Mon-Tues-Thurs 16.30-17.30, Wed-Fri 13.30-17.00). School will end the first week of July.

I will also need your help for half a day during 3-4 weeks in the summer (2 in July, 2 in August)

You must be 100% reachable and reliable and enjoy being with children! Can it be you?

I’m going on holiday! (But do I have health insurance there?)

There are few barriers to getting health insurance coverage in Belgium; it is thankfully one of the easier tasks expats have to take on when moving here. One simply chooses a mutuality, perhaps compares a few, and buys basic coverage, which is inexpensive.
