“Lucinda was absolutely amazing looking after the two babies in our family. She kept in regular contact sending photos and we always came home to two happy little ones. She was super flexible- able to meet us out and take the babies home or fit in some extra hours.
We would definitely book with them again”
Chalet Serpolet – Christmas 2019 – 3 months and a 6 month old
Lucinda was an excellent nanny and Ezra really enjoyed spending time with her. He had a ball playing in the snow and had fun all day long making it a great holiday for him too.
Chalet Serendipity – New Year – 3 years old
Lucinda was an absolute star, she was very kind and gentle and that’s what Xanthe needed. She would take her out of the chalet before we would leave so that she wouldn’t get upset. (She’s never been away from me as I’m a stay at home mum). We felt able to leave her knowing that Xanthe was very relaxed and happy in Lucinda’s care. Lucinda would take her to the play centre in town, for walks near our chalet and up in the bubble on the slopes to play in the snow and watch the aeroplanes. We couldn’t have asked for a better nanny, and will be requesting Lucinda next year!! Thank you so much.
Sage – Meribel – January 2020
Lucinda was an absolute dream. We couldn’t have had a better nanny taking care of our 10 month old and 15 month old. She was so flexible and the kids absolutely adored her. It made our trip so much more enjoyable knowing they were so well taken care of.
Wallace – Chalet La Vielle Scierie – Ski Blanc – Feb 2020
Lucinda was fantastic, all our children loved being with her and she really made the holiday wonderful for them with so many fun activities and imaginative play. She also made our holiday wonderful because we could go off skiing and knew the children were all happy. She was flexible, collected from ski school, and did
everything we asked. We would like to request her for next year!!
