Experience & Qualifications

Introduction:

I am Australian-British and speak intermediate French, I am from London but have spent the last six years in Australia and have always wanted to spend a winter season in France. In November, I am getting married in the UK and am taking this opportunity to have a year off in Europe from my studies and career. I have decided to work this winter in child care, as I love looking after children and am thinking of having my own in the not too distant future. I love skiing and I am looking forward to living in the mountains this winter. I love dogs and will be living in Chamonix with my husband and dog Snowy.
Qualifications:

I have an undergraduate degree in Sociology and Psychology and am a qualified Psychotherapist and Counsellor, having attained a further Masters degree and Graduate Diploma qualification. I have worked in the charity sector for the last six years predominantly in the area of higher education.

I also have two years of experience in working as a tutor with teenagers with learning disabilities. I also have experience of teaching English in a primary school in Thailand and looking after children in an orphanage in Mexico. I also have experience of being a mentor to teenage females for two years.

I have twelve years experience as a babysitter. I am calm, patient and very responsible. I love looking after children and enjoying playing games and reading to children. I am happy to do homework with children and will always endeavour to stick to the parent's set routine for dinner and bedtime. I have experience with infants up to teenagers and am comfortable with all age groups.
Experience:

The maximum number of children I have been responsible for at one time would be around twenty children and this was during my experience as a volunteer teacher in Thailand and was in a classroom setting. I have two nephews and have hosted parties for them with up to fifteen children. Otherwise, in a babysitting setting, I am comfortable with up to four children.

"Sophia was wonderful. She was flexible, kind and looked after the 4 children (between ages 4 and 7) really well. It was great to have a nanny with a mature head on her shoulders whilst able to have a fun time too. She is a very competent skier and was happy to ski down to the village from mid-station with the children after their lessons and practice a bit more on the nursery slopes at village level. We would have no hesitation in recommending Sophia to others and would be delighted to have her look after our children again.

"Sophia Robson was with our 10 1/2 month old son for a week while we skied. She was always on time and very accommodating, taking good care of our son. He was ill for a few days and she helped tremendously by taking care of him responsibly and giving him medication as instructed. Sophia is very caring and prepared meals for our baby as well.
I would recommend Sophia for watching your children in a responsible manner. We felt as though she did a good job in keeping our baby safe and happy.

"Two weeks ago I went skiing to the Chamonix area of France on my own with my 7 month old daughter. As most parents would be, I was a little anxious about leaving my daughter (especially as she's not really ever left my side!). I was delighted to speak to Sofia on the phone before my holiday and this put my worries aside as she sounded lovely and relaxed.
She was extremely prompt on the first day and asked all the right questions and I felt confident leaving Grace in her care. I was able to ring Sofia and check all was well throughout the care.
I was so lucky to have had Sofia look after Grace. Knowing she was in excellent hands made my trip to the mountains so pleasurable and something I will always remember. I didn't think snowboarding on my own with a 7 month old would have been possible.
Thanks so Sofia for everything you did.
Also thanks to alpine childcare for the excellent communication in England.

"We were lucky to find Sophia Robson, she took care of my 25 year old quadriplegic son and his (excitable) dog, in a small studio apartment. A star indeed, capable and good humoured, we would not hesitate to book her again or recommend her to others. The fact her husband is a competent handyman and fixed a few things around the place, was an added bonus. Thank you Sophia.

"We had Sophia Robson as our nanny for a week and she was absolutely brilliant. I was nervous about leaving my 3 month old baby for the first time but she quickly put my worries to rest and was fantastic with our baby who I'm sure didn't even miss us when we were gone!

She was also fantastic with our two other daughters who loved Sophia. She played endless games with them and they thought she was really really fun and I felt totally relaxed having her look after all three kids. Sophia is also very happy to do whatever is needed - watch the kids whilst they ski, take them for hot chocolates, take the baby for walks etc - and she often offered ideas about what she could do with the kids which was great.

She also left the apartment neat and tidy whilst we were out and always lent a helping hand where needed i.e. getting kids ready for ski school, emptying the dishwasher etc

We all really liked Sophia and would recommend her to anyone. She is kind, caring, fun and makes you feel confident about leaving your children in her care.

Dani and Chris.

"Sophie was sweet, easy and competent with all activities relating to the baby. No task was too much for her. She was punctual, managed all the baby care exceptionally well and was easy going and easily able to play with the baby and older boys and keep them amused. She fitted into the family well.

Many Thanks

"Sophia is very enthusiastic and has always provided good care to my two kids Jack who is two and Holly is six. Sophia has been our babysitter for a number of years and I have had no issues with her service, and can fully recommend her. I am sad she is leaving Australia as the kids enjoy spending time with her."
