Experience & Qualifications


My name is Laura and I am a very outdoorsy person. I love to travel and be active, I have been all around the world working with children therefore I have a fair bit of experience. I have worked on summer camps with children in New Zealand and America, I have also been a nanny in France and Greece and I did a Degree in Children's PE down in Plymouth. During the winter if you don't find me nannying I will be on a snowboard on the slopes with my friends having fun. I am flexible and reliable and love working with children.

I have completed school having done GCSE's and ALevels and I have also gained a 2:1 in Children's PE at University. I have lots of childcare experience having worked in international summer-camps on 3 separate occasions and I have also been a private nanny a few times before over the past couple of years, I have done 2 ski seasons in Morzine. I am pediatric and adult first aid trained.

I have worked with children of all ages, ranging from babies that are a few months old to 16 year-olds. Having worked in camps before I have been responsible for large groups of children within the allowed ratios. During my time at university I would often look after large classes of children and take their PE lessons and also on camp I would run activities on my own with no problems. The last 2 winters I have been in Morzine working as a nanny, therefore i know the area well and would also travel to Les Gets and Avoriaz. I would look after different children every day/week therefore I am very flexible and comfortable with any age. I also have experience working with both mental and physical special needs children, and have a basic understanding of makaton sign language. I have been working in a secondary school since coming back from my latest ski season, I have thoroughly enjoyed it and it has driven me to pursue a career in teaching which will be kicking off in September.

There is definite a passion caring for children. She shows enthusiasm and has great patience. Laura has been flexible working a number of different hours. I am sure her experiences will prove to be very valid. "

"Laura came to look after our little boy every day while we were skiing. She was absolutely lovely with him - very relaxed and natural and formed a good bond with him really quickly, which meant we felt totally comfortable leaving Ali with her while we skiied. We would definitely ask her to look after Ali again when we next come to Morzine!

"Laura was great. She was reliable, on time and very flexible when we asked her to do an extra hour here and there. The children, aged 6 and 3 really liked her and she was great with them, even when they were at max. volume and energy. If she is still in Avoriaz/Morzine next year we would definitely book her.
