Experience & Qualifications


I am a reliable, responsible and trustworthy person. I have been committed to studying hard during my school and university years. I have also successfully applied this commitment and drive to jobs that I have had. I have a positive and enthusiastic attitude with a determination to succeed. While studying, I have had several jobs, some of which have been seasonal and others that included weekend or evening work. These jobs have enabled me to experience and develop my skills. Whilst working with young children, I have learnt how to develop positive relationships with them in order to help them with their development. This has also enhanced my communication and team working skills with adults.

During my free time I enjoy painting and drawing. I also like going to the gym on a regular basis as well as spending time with my friends and family.

I have decided to spend a season in Chamonix, and as I have worked a lot with children in Sweden I would like to experience working with children in another country and environment.

"We got to know Josefine when she was a swimming instructor for our youngest daughter Emma a couple of years ago.
I then approached her when we needed help after the summer.
We have had help since the kids were small but spring 2020 until summer 2021 we were both working from home and we did not want help.
Our girls Emma (7 years old turning 8) and Hanna (11 years old turning 12) love Josefine.
She is kind, calm, funny and engage with the kids proposing activities like arts and crafts, board games, card games etc.
We have a box with semi-prepared dinners that arrive for the week and Josefine cooks based on this menu.
Her job is to focus on the kids, prepare dinner and help them to get ready for their after school activities.
We do not expect her to clean. We also do not want the kids to sit in front of a screen.
She drives our youngest to after school activities.
We trust her and even if we are happy that she finally can travel we will miss her a lot.
Her younger sister will fill in for her during her stay in Chamonix so it worked out well for us.

Our girls love Josefine. She is kind, calm, funny and engage with the kids proposing activities.
Josefine focus on our kids, help them to get ready for their after school activities and prepare dinner.
We trust her and would highly recommend Josefine to families that need child care.

"We were delighted to have Josefine look after our three year old son. He was a little apprehensive to be left with someone he didn't know before she arrived, but quickly warmed to her. Josefine was engaging and kind and super capable. She made a huge effort in finding activities that would interest our son and keep him engaged. He loved his time with her. Nothing was too much trouble for her, and her flexibility, reliability and friendly demeanor made our holiday. Thank you Josefine!

This is the second time we have used the services of Alpine Child Care and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the services to our friends and family.

Many thanks for a wonderful experience.
