Experience & Qualifications

Introduction:

Hello!
My name is Naomi and this is my third winter in Meribel. I absolutely love it here, from the activities on offer to the beauty that surrounds us every day. I now live here all year round.
My background is mainly in creative and literature so I love stories and play!
I am a keen skier and this season have also started touring and learning to cross-country ski (I fall over a lot).
I also love working with horses and have done some work in horse therapy. I love getting out and about and exploring.
I love to cook, and find it both theraputic and great for kids as they learn what they're eating (and science?!).
I'd love to hear from you!

Experience:

I worked for the Charity 'Take A Break' for 5 years working with children and adults with special needs and had a lot of long term clients.
I have cared for children from the age of 8 months up to 16 years!
As I was a senior leader for the charity I have been responsible for up to 20 children at one time (with people working with me). In a situation with just me the largest group I have worked with is 5 children.

"Naomi was fantastic. We couldn't have been happier with her. From the minute she walked through the door our eight month old was so happy with her and it made our ski trip to be able to go off skiing each day knowing Harry couldn't be happier. She took him out on walks and did lots of things in the local area with him. I couldn't recommend her more highly and wish we could take her home as our full time nanny when I go back to work!

"RE: Reference for Naomi Spicer
Naomi Spicer came to work with my son, Freddy, who has moderate to severe learning difficulties, from March 2010 via the ‘Take A Break’ care worker agency based in Warwickshire. We had just suffered the short illness and passing away of Fred’s mother so it was a traumatic time for the family. Naomi came to us with a cheerful, caring, compassionate, supportive and sensitive approach that lifted the whole family. She certainly showed maturity beyond her years and helped Fred, and thereby me, through a difficult time in our lives.
Naomi remained professional in her approach but was not just another care worker, she became a friend to Fred. She is a very kind and considerate person and has kept in touch with us and sees Fred when she is back in the area.
I found Naomi to be reliable, honest and trustworthy.

"March 2016
Naomi looked after our little boy Artie (8 months) for a week in February 16. I highly recommend Naomi and I was very impressed with the service that we received. Artie adored her straight away and I felt really confident leaving him in her care. They had lots of fun, played in the chalet, went on snowy walks and she sent me photos throughout the day which I loved. We will definitely be asking Naomi to help us again when we are out in Meribel.

Thank you.

Reference:

"My son had not been left with strangers before using Naomi and was naturally unsettled. Naomi dealt with this calmly and professionally and immediately put both my husband and I at ease, as well as my son by calming him to such an extent he fell asleep on her lap.

Naomi has a natural warmth to her and this is even more obvious when watching her interact with children. She is unflappable and trustworthy which meant that I never worried about the safety of my child.

I recommend Naomi with full confidence and would certainly look to employ her again when we next visit Meribel.

"To whom it may concern Naomi Spicer looked after my two girls Iona 10 and Claudia 5 during our holiday in Meribel in March 2016. I found her to be efficient , resourceful and kind with my girls . They loved having her look after them which shows a great character on her part as they didn’t have much time to get to know her. I would recommend Naomi for child care and hope to use her again sometime. Justine Thompson "

"Naomi worked for us as a chalet manager for 5 months and was trustworthy and reliable at all times. She got on great with all the children staying in the chalet, making sure their stay was fun and comfortable. I would not hesitate to ask her to look after my nieces and nephews."
