For 4 years we have come to Meribel and had Nicole as our Nanny, her service is fantastic and our children love her
(L. Grimley 2011)
Nicole's calm and thoughtful manner made it so east to feel confident leaving our babies with her. It is clear she has a lot of experience and we are grateful that we were able to have her look after our little ones for the week.
They all had a ball, a quick low down on our kids over e mail and she arrived with a selection of toys, books, paints and crafts which were spot on.We were delighted with the fact that she spent a great deal of time outdoors, taking cable car rides, trips to the park and sledging
Nicole has such a wonderful way with Children and this put us all at ease very quickly, we were able to have a wonderfully relaxing holiday because of it and we have all said that we will definitely be back next year and will be booking your nanny services again.
Thank you for taking care of our son during our stay in Meribel. You were just wonderful - we felt completely comfortable leaving him with the you each morning, knowing he was in such great hands. That kind of confidence is hard to come by when it comes to your little ones!
Our aim is to provide the best childcare possible so that upon your arrival you feel happy and confident that your children are well looked after.
All our nannies are qualified and/or experienced, DBS checked, first aid trained and are also trained in resort.
Before Your arrival you will receive a profile of the nanny who will be caring for your children. She will then arrive early on the first day to ensure that all requirements for the week ahead have been discussed, so that you feel confident and assured that your little ones are happy and in capable hands.
On the day you arrive Nicole will deliver any toys and equipment you have ordered and answer any questions you may have about the week ahead.
What areas do you provide your Private Nanny service?
Your nanny will come to your accommodation to look after your children in Meribel, Motteret, Meribel Village, Les Allues (and surrounding villages), Brides Les Bain and throughout the Courchevel valley.
What activities will the nanny do with the children?
During the week your children will enjoy many activities such as…
sledging, rides on the gondola, crepe trips, bowling, bus rides to the park, snow castle and snowman building, rides on the merry-go-round and so much more. Whether it be outside or inside, painting, board games, hide and seek or just a quiet afternoon after a long ski, your children will be kept busy and have lots of fun on their holiday.
For little ones, your nanny will follow his/her routine as directed by you, entertaining your little one with sensory play, singing, bubbles and play dates with other babies of a similar age. Your nanny will keep you updated through out the day and will provide a little diary for you to see when you arrive back from a lovely day on the mountain.
Can our nanny pick the children up from ski school?
Yes! If your children are at ski school, your nanny can arrive in the morning to help get them ready, take them to ski school, and stay with them to make sure they are happy. I’ve found that over the years this can be quite handy, especially if you have a first time skier. Your nanny can then pick up the children and take them back to your chalet/apartment for lunch and games indoors and out.
We also have our new Lunch club service in association with Parallel Lines ski school, which is available during peak weeks and is perfect if you only want a couple of afternoons childcare rather than a full week.
Will our nanny bring lunch for the children?
We do not provide lunch for the children, but your nanny will be more than happy to discuss with you their likes and dislikes and pop to the supermarket to get the things that she may need for the week we have found that around 25 euros per child for the week is enough for a supermarket shop. Or she can take the children to a close by restaurant for lunch each day.
For little ones we recommend arriving with some purees at the start of the week, following this the nanny will be more than happy to make up some puree’s while the little one is napping, Nicole will discuss this with you before your arrival.
If you are on holiday with Meriski, Ski Cuisine, or your children are booked into Lunch club, lunch will be provided.
Please note, some chalet companies will not allow use of their kitchens, this can include the microwave etc, it is important to check with your accommodation provider, what they will allow you and your nanny to use.
What equipment will the nanny bring for the children?
We have been praised every week for our amazing age appropriate toy boxes.
Our games, puzzles and arts and crafts ensure that the Ipads are forgotten and your children are kept busy while they are indoors, during your nannies hours. For little ones we can provide, baby bounce chairs, play gyms, sit up rings and an array of rattles and sensory toys to keep them entertained.
We also provide sledges, Changing mats, sterilisers, baby monitors and baby booster chairs cots with Linen and highchairs. We will discuss your requirements before your arrival to ensure you have everything you need. These items will then be delivered to your chalet by the childcare manager on the day of your arrival.
