Ellie Pritchard


Ellie joined our team in January 2022 as a part time nanny, every single family absolutely loved her, for winter 2022/23 Ellie joined us again, but this time on a full time basis, as well as providing adhoc hosting and cooking services in resort on quiet weeks. Again all of her families loved her, many requesting her again for the following year!

We are very excited that Ellie will be returning to us again for winter 2023/24

Ellie is 27 years old and has a Bachelor of Education Degree and over 5 years experience working with children from 9 months – 11 years old.

After volunteering in Nepal in 2013 Teaching English, Ellie fell in love with working with children, in 2015 after a couple of seasons working as a chalet host in Les deux Alps she began her university degree in Plymouth. Spending her school holiday weeks working for PGL travel leading school ski trips.

Since graduating Ellie has worked as a teacher in several schools, firstly in a school in Greenwich mainly teaching years 3,4 and 5 computing and French to the year 6 students as well as moving around the school, covering teachers in the nursery and reception classes, this was a great first teaching position as she was able to move around the school and get experience with all ages out of university placements.

In 2020 Ellie moved back to Cornwall where she has been working as a substitute teacher in local schools around Penzance. Working in classes from reception up to year 6.

Once covid had freed up travel a bit more, Ellie decided it was time to put her 2 loves together to make the perfect job, nannying in the mountains!

She is excited for a change and looking forward to working with children in a different capacity, building up her experience with under 3’s and getting out in the snow to play as much as possible.

Ellie is a very keen skier and also loves to cook and be outdoors.

Speaking to Ellies references, they had lovely things to say about her and believed to be a great candidate for working as a holiday nanny.

FEEDBACK 2023/24

Our second year with Ellie and she didn’t disappoint. From the moment we arrived she was fantastic…. She engagaed with all the children and managed them perfectly! Thank You Ellie… See you next year!!

Savage family –  Chaudanne Hotel  – January 2024

Ellie was reliable, great with the kids (2 and 4) including taking them on great outings, thoughtful, flexible and our children loved being with her. We can’t recommend her highly enough. Méribel Nanny Services (Nicole) were efficient and responsive – they also organise fun group activities over the week for the kids under their care.

Riley Family – Hotel L’Eterlou – December 2024



Ellie was absolutely brilliant – so positive, fun and proactive. The kids had the best time with her. We all wanted her to come home with us! I would highly recommend her, and Meribel Nannies, for anyone needing childcare in Meribel.

Nicholson family – chalet Tomkins – March 2023

Thank you to Ellie who yet again gave the boys a brilliant week in the mountains. Ellie was full of energy, engaging and happy to do anything requested with them. She made our and their holiday wonderfully relaxing and fun.

Bailey family – chalet Tom Hall –  March 2023

Yet another year of wonderful service from Nicole.  Ellie was fantastic with both our children (and the many cousins!).  My 4 year olds best part of the day was getting to see Ellie after skiing! Thank you to you both.  See you next year!!

Hotel Chaudanne – Meribel January 2023

Ellie was great with the girls, I knew the girls were happy when on the second morning when Ellie arrived the girls both ran over to her and cuddled her.

Chalet Eleanor – Meribel – December 2022


Can’t recommend Nicole and Méribel Nanny Services more highly. Jazz and Ellie made the holiday for our children – and us!

Hewson family – April 2022

“Ellie was wonderful with our kids and was so energetic and enthusiastic with them. They loved her!”

Hayes family – March 2022

Ellie had been such a superstar. Our boys can take some time to warm to people but they clicked with Ellie immediately. She was absolutely brilliant and took them on a whole host of activities and gave them a holiday they will remember for a long time. I can’t thank her enough and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to any other family.

Bailey family – March 2022


We had the most amazing holiday and a huge part of that was because of Ellie! She was absolutely amazing, so good with the kids and made us feel completely at ease straight away! The kids miss her already and we are so greatful to have had her with us! We will absolutely use the services again when we are back!

Hunter family – Feb 2022

Just wanted to send you a quick message thanking you for organising our childcare last week in La Tania, and letting you know how happy we were with Ellie.

Ellie was fantastic – full of energy, sweet, fun, amenable and helpful. We found her really easy to work with and our children really loved spending time with her – our holiday was all the better for it, so thank you – and Ellie.

Hawes family – Feb 2022

We could not have been happier with how our holiday went, and in particular with the service provided by Ellie (and indeed, by Jess). We are so glad that you took on Ellie in time for her to help us out. She was a delight – grounded, friendly, helpful and clearly fully engaged with the children, as well as being a seriously accomplished skier!
