Experience & Qualifications

Introduction:

I am 33 years old, I'm Italian and I spent the last 13 years of my life travelling. I love sports in general, but I'm mostly dedicated to skiing and climbing.
I've had different jobs throughout my life as I like new challenges and experiences. While travelling, I mainly worked in hospitality. Now I work as a rope access technician in France.
The reason why I decided to work in child care this winter is because I love kids and I get very much satisfaction from working with them. I also want to be able to organize my work throughout winter so that I can have some time off to enjoy the mountains myself and be a happier person.
Qualifications:

I have the Italian equivalent of college diploma (2004). I did a 8 months course with the Italian Red Cross which gave me the qualification for volunteering on the ambulance (2012).
I did a 3 weeks ski instructor course which concentrated on teaching children to ski (Australia 2008)
Experience:

Australian winter 2008 - I was a ski instructor for children between the age of 4 and 6. I had groups that varied from 8 to a max of 14 kids at a time from Sunday to Friday from 9am to 15pm.

Winter 2008/2009 - Switzerland - I was a ski instructor for children between the age of 5 and 8. I had multicultural groups and I was giving the classes in Italian, English and French.

I babysat several times my friends' kids since they were a few months old.

"Monica is a very happy person anyone can rely on. She takes care of my daughter Deva (14 months old) from time to time.
Depending on my needs either she stays home and take care of the house while looking after Deva, or she takes her out.
Deva loves her very much and that's very important for us.

"Monica looked after my son Sebastian since he was a couple of months old until his second year.
She came over to our place a few times per month and at least once a week when we wanted to have dinner out of if we needed extra help, like getting Seb picked up from nursery school.
Monica is reliable and she loves kids.
I highly recommend her!

"Monica was fantastic. She was very sweet, and kind with Noah, and kept him entertained and happy for the 3 days while we were off skiing. She always arrived promptly and nothing was too much trouble for her. We would happily recommend her!

"Monica was great with our daughter, played countless hours and read tons of books every night. Our daughter received her every night with a great smile on her face

Thank you Monica, we will definitely count with you next time we come to Megeve. It was great to have you taking care of our daughter Claudia.

"Monica was just lovely and so capable - my nerves and heart were already shot by a combination of Sidonie (age 6) making daredevil progress on her skis and Tim making me ski slopes which were challenging in the extreme, given the wonderful conditions!

It was such a relief not to have to worry that Sidonie was also in good hands after ski school and the extra few hours' grace meant that her father, who is having a tough time atm, both at work and with his elderly mother, could fully enjoy his beloved ski-ing holiday!
