Experience & Qualifications

Introduction:

I’ve worked with children since leaving education and found the work to be equally fun and rewarding. I have been able to progress and improve in my interests through working abroad and working with large groups of children of varying ages and in various settings. My summers I have spent working in active holiday resorts that have an emphasis on watersports. Through the same company I have been able to also achieve the same work satisfaction in an wintersports setting. I have always been described as enthusiastic, friendly and hard working by previous employers and I pride myself on an ability to create a rapport with children very quickly.
Qualifications:

Finished A levels in 2013, I studied English Literature, Maths and Psychology
Regularly updated first aid training and specialist courses in paediatric and infant first aid
Up to date DBS check
Nanny insured
Experience:

Provided private child care for local families until April 2014 mainly a family with 3 girls aged 18 months, 3 years and 6 years
Worked as a nanny in holiday resorts in the summers of 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 caring for children aged 4 months to 18 years
Worked as a live in nanny in London winter 15/16 caring for 3 boys aged 6 months, 2 years and 4 years
Worked abroad in the Alps in the winter 16/17 caring for children aged 4 months to 13 years
The amount of children I have cared for at one time has always varied depending on the age of the children. The least amount of children I have been responsible for in a season setting is 2 children that were under two years old. The maximum has been when I’ve run larger social groups for teenagers and been in sole charge of 20+ children.
I started with Alpine Childcare in the Paradiski area last year when I lived in Les Coches winter 17/18 having lots of fun and improving my knowledge of the local area. I provided care for children with a range of ages between 7 months and 10 years.
During the summer of 2018 I have been a private nanny for a family in London caring for twins who were aged 7 months when I began my role as their caregiver.

"Alicia is a lovely person who I have known for over three years. She has looked after my three children (now 9, 6 and 4) many times over that period and has always been reliable, trustworthy, and, from the children's point of view, lots of fun. I always feel very confident that she is conscious of my children's safety and happiness while she is looking after them, and if I need to ask her to do something whilst she's in charge it gets done.

Her first time looking after my daughters was when the youngest was 18 months old and she was wonderful with her. Now they are older they still love being looked after by Alicia as she has lots of good ideas for fun things to do, but she's also clearly in charge when she's with them.

I know Alicia has lots of experience looking after children in other settings, particularly holiday kids clubs and am confident that she would be a great child care choice for your clients.

"Alicia provided an excellent nanny service during our weeks ski holiday in Les Coches. She arrived early each day to start her duties and quickly demonstrated first rate knowledge and skills as a nanny. In addition to feeding, changing nappies and settling my 7 month old baby for her naps, Alicia also interacted very well with her and responded to her needs in a very thoughtful and professional way.

"Alicia Norman (alongside another nanny) looked after our 6 children (aged between 5 and 7) during our recent holiday in La Plagne. She was friendly, approachable, helpful and great with the children. Every day she met our children at ski school and walked them (and all their equipment!) back to our chalet. She sorted them lunch and made sure they had a variety of fun activities to fill their afternoon. Every day we came back to very happy children telling us about the fun they had had and the new songs/games they had been taught. ​ Alicia also proactively suggested fun things to do with the children such as going out for a snowy picnic and tobogganing, both of which the children loved. I would thoroughly recommend Alicia, as would my children!

Given Lesley and Alicia hadn't worked together before they both did an excellent job and managed our 6 excited children brilliantly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them or Alpine Chid Care - a thoroughly professional and efficient service.

"Ali was very good at communicating with us before the holiday and came to meet the kids the day before she started, making an excellent impression from the outset. She has a very positive, outgoing personality which our 3 children warmed to and she could understand the children easily, was able to indentify likes and dislikes in our 17 month old etc. We were very happy with Ali.

"Just is just to let you know that Alicia was amazing. She was proactive, cheerful, focused on Florence excellently and did lots of fun things with her. She took her swimming and was proactive in helping her improve her swimming, took her skiing on the nursery slop and helped her get to grips with her ski’s and simple techniques, she did arts and crafts with her and took her on trips. She also ‘played’ with her with her toys wonderfully, which meant Florence felt completely comfortable with her.

She gave her lunches and was super helpful all the time. I would recommend her 100% and if we are able to ask her to be our nanny again we certainly will!

With many thanks
