Find reliable, skilled people to care for your child while you are busy

Are you having trouble finding reliable, skilled people to care for your child while you are busy?

Do you want your child to learn to interact with people outside your family?

Do you have a health issue or a work assignment that prevents you from giving your child as much care as you would like?

Get help to care for your child, by offering accommodation and meals


All you need to do is sign up as a host with Hovos and find the perfect volunteer, who matches your needs, and your problem is resolved. In exchange for the volunteer's help with child care, all you have to do is provide food and accommodation.

Maybe you want someone young and physically capable of keeping up with your little one's active lifestyle. Maybe you want someone from a different country so that your child can learn another language or gain exposure to a different way of life and culture. Maybe you are a first time parent who would like an older, experienced person helping with child care.

Wins from this experience

Anything is possible when you have Hovos supporting your search for a responsible person to care for your child. The best part is that you do not pay for their service; making sure they have a place of stay and food is all you have to do in exchange.
