Experience & Qualifications

Introduction:

I am an energetic and enthusiastic person who loves working with children and teaching sports.
I love the challenge of developing relationships with children to identify their abilities, interests , problems and needs to simply help them become better and happier people in the future.
My experience working with children dates back to my teenage years when I was helping to run horse-riding camps for children in change for free riding lessons.
The first jobs I undertook was summer position as Au-Pair in Ireland and after that I have done a lot of various childcare related jobs such as working in childcare companies, organizing birthdays for children, tutoring English and helping on the sport events for kids.
Finally all my passions, snowboarding, working with children and travelling had crossed together so I ended up spending last six winter seasons in Chamonix, which turned out to be a paradise place for me.
For the last six winter seasons I have been working there as a babysitter /nanny for a great variety of local families , chalet companies , tourists and agencies.
I can provide excellent referances .
Since I have always been a sports addict, and all my friends noticed that I have got an endless amounts of energy, I went on the Physical Education course that was an amazing experience. It allowed me to submerge into pediatric, psychological and physical aspects of Childhood. Now, As a qualified teacher I understand the importance and impact of that period in the future life .
The opportunity to learn new skills and work with organizing activities and childcare for children is particularly attractive to me.

Apart from travelling , my biggest passions are sports ,travelling around the world ,animals and cooking.

Reference:

"Vicky looked after our 14 month old baby and 3 year old during our 3 week holiday in Chamonix last March.

Vicki was amazing and left me quite happy to go to the slopes knowing that my girls were being looked after so well.

She took them sledging, on walks, made them lunch, and came equipped with so many pens/crayons/stickers/art materials etc that we always came home to see happy smiling faces and fantastic artistic pieces. We had an art gallery by the end of the holiday and they still talk about Vicky when looking through our scrap book of the holiday.

I would absolutely have no hesitation in recommending Vicky and I am hoping that she will be available to look after my girls again this season.
