Experience & Qualifications


I'm a 40 years old, Dutch and very young at heart.!! In December I do will be 5 months pregnant!! I've travelled a lot in my life and have done a couple of ski seasons working in Italy, Austria and France (I ve done last winter and summer season in Morzine). Besides winter seasons I also did a summer season working for a Dutch surf camp in France and I ve been (I was 21 years old at that time) a nanny on the Big island Hawaii for 2 months looking after 4 kids between the age of 6 and 12 years old.

I've my bachelors degree in Tourism and management. So yes, you can say I am a very good tourist ;)

I love sports. Skiing and hiking are my favorite. I've been skiing since the age of 3. Other sports that I've practiced are ballet, hockey, tennis and indoor soccer. '

Other interests are photography dancing and shopping.

I don't have qualifications for being a nanny, but I do have experience as you can read below.

Highest academic level: Bachelors in tourism and management

I have been looking after 8 months old till 11 years old children. Mostly they where the children of families I was working for in Holland. In St Anton in Austria I looked after a 2 and a 4 year old, working for brambleski.com a high end chalet company.

For the moment I'm doing my 4th season in Morzine and I've gained a lot more experience as a nanny. And next summer I'll be my 3rd time looking after a family with 3 kids for 6 weeks.

Is has been a real joy looking after all the little ones and a pleasure meeting their lovely families.

"Iris was superb - kind, responsible and experienced - it was great knowing our 8 month old son Louis was in safe hands so we could get out and ski without worrying.

"We have just returned from a wonderful family holiday in Avoriaz. We had a fantastic time thanks mainly to the wonderful childcare provided by iris. Nothing was too much trouble and she provided a high level of care to the five children she was looking after who were aged between 10 and 12. Her duties involved picking up and dropping off at ski school and providing lunch for the children back at the chalet. On the afternoons when the younger ones didn't make it back in to ski school she kept them entertained with fun in the snow and even a trip to the local water park. I would thoroughly recommend Iris for anyone needing a nanny.

"This is a character witness for Iris. I have know Iris for 30 years as we grew up together. She is a very reliable, honest and trustworthy person and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to work with children. She is kind and is always careful and punctual.

"Here is a feed back from her week with Alfie Edmonds 5-11th March 2017, Morzine

Iris was very confident & relaxed with Alfie. He loved her for her short time with us. Hed hold his arms up for a cuddle or walk after a few days of getting to know her. She did well to keep him entertained in the apartment for the week. I felt instantly reassured that she would look after Alfie well as soon as I met her.

Many thanks, Susie Edmonds

"Iris baby sat with us for three nights in Les Gets. She was lovely, very sociable and friendly to both us and our children. She was largely un-phased when the children woke in the night and had a great manner to settle them very quickly. She comes across as very experienced and we would have no hesitation in using her again for baby-sitting or more extensive nannying during the day.

"Iris was brilliant with our little boy Ewan aged 5, picking him up from ski lessons, taking him for lunch and keeping him entertained in the afternoon. She took him for walks, ice skating and bowling as well as playing on his Nintendo Switch with him. Iris is a really nice person, very good company to chat to and was happy to be flexible to suit our plans for the day. Ewan had a brilliant time and cried when he had to say goodbye for the last time. I would have no hesitation in recommending Iris to anybody in need of a nanny.

"Iris was friendly and immediately put us at ease leaving our children with her, they are 12 months, 2.5 and 3.5 years. She settled three upset children (first morning) professionally and took it in her stride. After 2 days the children were asking for her.
Iris kept in regular contact, sending photos of their activities throughout the day, letting us relax and enjoy our day.

I would not hesitate to recommend Iris or use her again next time we visit the area.

Many thanks

"I would like to say a big thank you to Alpine Child Care who supplied a nanny to our family when we visited Avoriaz. Iris Lok was wonderful, our 2 year old took to her immediately, she was punctual, flexible and fun for the children.

At times our 4 year old didn’t want to ski and Iris would come and meet with us on the slopes to pick her up and take her back to the appt to play.

Iris also joined us for ice skating and sledging where she helped to look after all 3 children with us.

Thank you!

"Iris looked after our 10 month old daughter so my husband and I could have a ski together. Having never left our baby with a stranger before, we weren't sure how it would go. We needn't have worried however as our baby seemed very comfortable and relaxed with Iris from the beginning. Iris is easy going, flexible and reliable and we would definitely recommend Iris to other parents looking for a nanny.
