Experience & Qualifications

Introduction:

I consider myself a responsible, friendly and caring person who loves working with people especially with children.

After living 4 years in UK, I decided to experience something different and I moved to the French Alps and I worked as a private nanny in the resorts throughout Paradiski and Espace Killy.

I love living in the mountains, skiing, climbing and spending time with children playing in the snow, sledging and building snowmen.

I cover all of Paradiski, including La Plagne, Les Coches, Montchavin & Les Arcs.
Qualifications:

I am a graduate who has experience working with children as a Science Teacher in primary schools delivering extra curricular activities for children aged 7 to 12 years old.

I have a current paediatric fisrt aid and NEBOSH certificate in Occupational Health and Safety at Work.
Experience:

Last five Winters, I worked for a UK based childcare agency taking care of babies and young children ( up to 3 children) for families on holidays in Paradiski and Espace Killy Resorts.

My child care experience started while living in Portugal assisting my grandmother who was a childminder, looking after children with ages ranging from 3 months to 10 years old.

I also have experience babysitting for family and friends in the UK.

Before moving to the UK, I worked in primary school where I was responsible for planning and delivering activities for children of different age groups (7 to 12 yrs).

I have also done volunteering work in a local primary school in Kent.

"A little note to say a massive thank you for helping us to find Claudia for our ski holiday in La Plagne.

She was fabulous. She was brilliant with the children - it's not easy to look after 4 aged 3-6 but she made it look simple. They loved their time with her. She did fun activities like sledging, and chalet-based activities with games and crafts. She managed their lunch every day, lugged their ski kit about, made them laugh, dealt with the inevitable tired tantrums, used the bus and the gondola and did it all with a smile on her face. She is warm and kind and really makes a perfect nanny. We can't recommend her highly enough.

Having someone like her in charge of the kids made our holiday. We could relax, enjoy our own skiing, and even sneak in an afternoon nap on some occasions...!

"We went on holidays for a week in Belle Plagne in December and Claudia took care of our young children. She spent most of the time with our little boy who is 16 months. He loved her ! We were very happy because she was very inventive to entertain our little boy. She took him around in his stroller to see the mountains, lent a little sleigh for him, took him in Plagne Centre where there is a playground for young babies... he really had a good time while we were skiing ! She has a very positive energy and she is very experienced with young kids and babies. Claudia also took care of my nephews who are 4, 5 and 7 and new perfectly how to adapt games and occupations to each age. We speak both English and French in my family and Claudia totally knows the two languages : it was very convenient and easy. I really recommend her : she is a nanny parents can perfectly trust !! I wish we will have the opportunity to go back to Paridiski and work again with Claudia !

"Claudia provided a nannying service to look after two little boys (aged 2) within our ski party during January 2012. From the outset, Claudia inspired confidence with both her kind and caring attitude towards the boys, as well as her ability to effectively manage the challenges of toddler mealtimes and tantrums.

During the time that she spent with the boys, Claudia went above and beyond the service that she had been paid to provide, taking them on cable car rides, bus trips, sledging and arranging picnics in the snow. By the end of the week it was clear that the boys had had a wonderful time with Claudia (far beyond anything that we had expected) and we were all very sorry to say goodbye to her.

I would not hesitate to recommend Claudia as an excellent childcare provider

"I worked with Claudia for over 3 years and over this time she became not only a work colleague but also a very dear friend. I have two children of my own who are 5 and 2 ½ years old and they both instantly warmed to her because of her kind nature. She was always playing games with them and spent a lot of time with them. Whilst your children are in Claudia’s care you can be assured they will be looked after with great care."

"Thank you so much for putting us in touch with Claudia. She was wonderful and my kids loved spending time with her. She was very flexible with us and so kind and attentive with Olivia, I couldn't recommend her more highly for anyone looking for childcare in the Belle Plagne.

Thanks and regards,

"Thanks for your emails and everything that Alpine Child Care did to sort things out for us. Claudette and Claudia were both absolutely fantastic nannies and we really can't recommend them highly enough. The solution with Sarah's friend to help collect the kids from Ski School worked perfectly and gave the mothers (and the fathers) all the confidence and flexibility we could have hoped for. A fatastic holiday was had by all.

I will definately come back to you with any future alpine nanny requirements that I have and will unhesitatingly recommend your service to my friends.

"We wanted to write to say how pleased we were with Claudia who looked after Isabella (7 years) and Caspar (6 years). We were nervous having not used a nanny service before but could not have asked for better care for our children. Claudia was intuitive when it came to the needs of the children and fun when it came to letting them enjoy their holiday. She took them sledging, ski-ing and the kids loved every minute.

To Mags I would recommend you do all can to hold on to Claudia, and to other parents, snap her up before she gets fully booked!

Kind regards,

Kaaren and Damion

"Claudia was wonderful with both Tom (5) and Arabella (2) and also helped with the older kids in our group including our oldest son. Her task was not easy as she had to go back and forth each day to fit in with lessons for Tom with a long walk or an unpredictable bus timetable but she did it with very good grace and was always happy and positive. She was proactive, sorting out packed lunches, things to do with Arabella including taking her sledging. On one day the older girls in our group decided that they didn' want to ski in the afternoon so she also looked after them and when we returned everyone was playing quietly and happily. We were delighted with her and would use her again if we returned to les Coches.

"I would like to recommend Claudia as a trustworthy, fun, reliable and a hugely responsible nanny. The 4 children have thoroughly enjoyed the time spent with her and we instantly felt a rapport of trust and confidence in her.

Claudia went over and above to ensure the children were happy and entertained, even bringing with her a green felt hat for the snowman!!

Thank you Claudia, I'll be planning my holiday around your availability next year!!!

"Claudia was a great nanny and I felt very comfortable straight away when I left her in charge of my 2 year old daughter last week. She took my little one sledging, to the play ground, and played in the chalet with her. Great experience with Claudia and I would highly recommend her.

"Claudia was fantastic looking after our 2 year old daughter. Chloe instantly warmed to Claudia. She has a very friendly caring manner and we felt very reassured that Chloe was being looked after by an experienced childminder.

"Following our recent holiday, I would just like to thank you for putting us in touch with Claudia. Clara really enjoyed her time with her and Claudia really pitched things at just the right level to entertain her, even bringing her own selection of paints to make some beautiful cards for us. Claudia was very flexible on arrangements to meet up with Clara and we couldn’t have asked for more during our stay. I would very happily recommend her to other parents.

I would also have no hesitation in recommending Alpine Child Care to other parents looking for childcare solutions. I thought the website was great, easy to use and your back up service and putting us in touch with a nanny was faultless.

"We used Claudia on our holiday to Arc 1950 in Easter 2018 and found her to be a wonderful warm professional person who clearly has a lot of experience of dealing with children and a natural understanding of their various needs. She clearly enjoys working with them.

My children are aged 7 and 5, and the younger one has some special educational needs – reduced attention, language etc – which did not pose her any difficulties at all.

I would not hesitate to recommend her.
