Experience & Qualifications


Hello Loving and Carrying Parents :)
if you wish to enjoy your skiing days and be sure that your little ones have as much fun as you on the slopes look no further than fun and active nanny. I love walks and snowboarding and wouldn't mind to take older kids who are already staying on their feet up the mountain :) I am a natural mountain person so enjoy outdoor activities and making little adventures for the kids. At home I would normally follow the routine given by parents with snack breaks and find out kids favorite games. Last year I have helped a lovely family each weekend looking after 2, 1 year old Axel and 3 Year old Alma, we always went for walks, baked cakes, played games and learned new nursery songs :) Alma had her leg broken half of the season but we managed just fine to keep ourselves busy with other activities at home and Axel have been ill few times what was a bit challenging but I've stayed in regular contact with the parents. I think babysitting is the best job if you like to interact with the little ones.

my highest education degree is BA in International Hospitality and Travel completed in 2010 at London Metropolitan University
Last time i have completed a first aid training it was 2 years ago on a offshore survival course
I have been babysitting for various families in the last 10years along my other jobs. I have experience with kids aged 1-16 years old. I like to be active with kids and entertain them in various games. Iam very flexible around my childcare hours and would always do my best to make the booking most suitable for the parents needs

during my young age i used to help my mum with my 7years younger brother. 10 years ago i moved to UK and worked for a year as an au pair carrying for a little girl called Holy aged4. I was responsible for picking her up from nursery and following the feeding, playing routine till the parents were returning home in the evening. During my season at the Alexander Again super yacht 4 years ago along my regular job as a stewardess i quite often help to look after 3 kids (two boys aged 2 and 4 year old (Max and Sasha) and a girl aged 6, Christina). I looked after the oldest girl most of the time taking her for swimming activities and walks. During the last 4 seasons i often had short them jobs helping with any enquires parents coming for ski holidays might had. Most of the time it was carrying for 2 kids at the same time often younger aged 1-2 and older 4-6. During last winter season i have worked for a lovely swedish family living in switzerland and coming to vallorcine for the weekends. I looked after 1 year old Axel and 3 year old Alma every weekend, taking them for walks, playing at home by the fire and following the regular snack breaks and making food.

"Basha was BRILLIANT! Very lovely, friendly, great with the children. Hard working and made our holiday possible. She was flexible and happy to babysit for us. She took the children sledging and on a train trip and to the playground.

"Basha was very nice and loving of our 15 months old. She got along with our child right away and took good care of him during the week so we could ski. She was really helpful and flexible in timing, helping us have a very nice holiday.

"Basha helped us out last ski season with our two children who were 1.5yrs and 4 yrs at the time. She was fantastic with both kids. The little one was a bit sad the first few times we left him and she knew exactly how to distract him and had no problems. She was really fun and active with the kids, getting them out in the snow, making fun lunches and treats with them and generally making sure they had a great time. She was always on time and went out of her way to help out if we were running late. She was easy to work with, flexible with her time and clearly very experienced taking care of kids. I always felt really good leaving the kids with her - both that they were safe and that they would have a fun time with a really loving person."

"Basha was an excellent nanny. Confident, reliable, flexible and most of all, excellent with our daughter Maya. In a short amount of time Basha proved herself to be an excellent carer, and built up a trusted relationship with Maya. In fact, it got to the point that Maya stopped crying when we left in the morning and instead would cry when Basha left at the end of the day!

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Basha, and would certainly use her again in the future.

"Basha is a fantastic nanny. She took excellent care of our 11 month old daughter, Lily, and developed a great relationship with her. I felt happy leaving Lily with Basha for the day and it was evident that Lily had fun with her. Basha was flexible with her hours and went out of her way to help us get the most out of our time in Chamonix. Basha is extremely hard working and has a can-do attitude, I highly recommend Basha as a nanny and she would be my first choice if we were to return to Chamonix.

Kind regards,
