Lucy Edwards is 28 years old and is joining us for her 3rd season for winter 2020/21, Lucy joined us on an adhoc/part time basis during winter 2018/19 and we were very excited to have her join the team full time for season 19/20 and are extremely happy to have her returning to us again. All of the families Lucy has been booked with have absolutely loved her and many have re booked already for this coming winter season.
Lucy has been working with children since 2015. After doing her A levels, she decided to travel from Wales to Australia for a year and absolutely fell in love with the country. She has spent 7 years working in Australia and this is where she found her love for working with children.
Being the Eldest of 4 girls she was always a helping hand for her mother including at the age of 15 being her mothers birthing partner for her youngest sister, so it is not a surprise that once she started working with children she fell in love with the job.
In Australia Lucy worked as a nanny for 2 families, the Southwell- Keely Family with one child of 2 years and the Cleary family who had 4 children, a new born, 2 years, 4 years and 6 years. Providing full time shared and sole charge care, full nurserie duties, following and implementing the childrens routines, school drop off and pick up, organising play dates, day trips and activities, Preparing healthy meals and bath and bedtime routines.
In summer 2018 Lucy took a temporary position working at a nursery as a nursery nurse, which was a great new experience for her, here she helped care for children from 5 months up to 4 years, floating between different class rooms, assisting the children during meals, encouraging the children through play indoor and outdoors and helping provide stimulating and creative activities to encourage the children to grow emotionally, socially and physically.
In December 2018 she arrived in Meribel to work as a freelance private nanny and worked throughout the season for various agencies, including Meribel Nanny Services. The families that Lucy worked for last season, absolutely loved her and we are very excited to have her working for us on a full time basis this coming winter.
Over summer 2019 Lucy has been back in Australia, working as a nanny in Bondi caring for a 1 year old 7am – 7pm Monday – Thursday each week, full nursery duties, including, following and implementing the babies routine, providing stimulating activities to promote healthy development, providing healthy foods and snack, plus bath time and bedtime routine in the evenings.
Lucy Loves to be outdoors, she enjoys skiing, bike riding, walking and Yoga during her free time and as much as she loves working near the beach over the summer, she is excited to get back to the snow and mountains!
If you would like to request Lucy for your holiday during winter 2020/21, please let us know and we can check her availability.
“Lucy is a natural with children; she shows great empathy with both the younger and older ones. She is good fun too…our children loved her!”

Great services again. Lucy was brilliant with the kids and they really liked her from the start. I highly recommend Méribel Nanny service, both years the nanny’s have been excellent and the kids are happy to stay and almost forget who we are!! Which is so nice to start the skiing day, knowing that your children are happy.
Penson – Chalet Kashmir – December 2019
Lucy was an absolute superstar all week. We stayed in Meribel Village with a three-year-old toddler and five month old baby, and really did not know how much skiing we would be able to get done. Lucy, together with Sarah, meant we got to ski for nearly full days. This was unexpected! She was energetic, kind, confident and full of ideas. My toddler and baby absolutely adored her, and had a great week in the mountains. Lucy set up a WhatsApp group so we were kept up to date with pictures etc, meaning we could really relax. We are booking for next season ASAP! Thank you “Lou Lou” x
Walsh – Chalet Marmotte – Meribel Village – January 2020
Lucy was brilliant with my 5 year old twins & our friends 2 older girls. The children took to her instantly and had amazing fun with lots of activities including bum boarding, snowman building, soft play, baking, arts & crafts and more. We all looked forward to seeing Lucy everyday. Lucy always arrived on time and was flexible when needed and generally made things easier for us all, which ensured everyone had a fantastic holiday. Lucy set up a WhatsApp group to keep us all update and sent us pictures of the children having lots of fun. We will definitely use Meribel Nannies again, and highly recommend Lucy, she is fab!
