Melanie Kruger is returning to us for her 2nd season and we are very excited to have her back for winter 2024/25

Melanie is 33 years old and she has over 15 years’ experience working with children from 6 months  – 18 years, in a wide range of settings including nurseries, primary schools, home care as a Nanny and babysitter, tutor/teacher and also summer and winter camps. Melanie also holds a BAFA certificate (a French Certificate for the supervision of young people, within community centers and holiday and leisure centres) and is fluent in French, English and Spanish.

She has worked  and travelled all over the world! Including France, Italy, Spain and has spent the last few years living and working in Panama, where her partner is from.

She returned to France in  the summer of 2023 and where she worked in Morzine as a holiday nanny for a well known nanny company there and also as a cleaner. She then joined us for her first ski season in Meribel from December 2023 – April 2024, she had the most incredible season and has totally fallen in love with the job, all of the feedback she received was amazing and many of her families have requested her again!

Melanie likes to take the time to get to know the children she is caring for, taking them out on adventures outdoors as well as crafting. She describes herself as patient, flexible, fun and friendly.

She loves travel, nature, animals and sharing her passions with the children.

Melanie is available throughout the season for full time bookings in the Meribel Valley, her weeks are booking up fast so we reccommend booking as early as possible

FEEDBACK 2023/24

“We truly enjoyed working with Melanie. She watched our 20month old for the week. our Lilie didn’t have an easy time watching us all leave for the morning to go skiing, but Melanie was always able to put her at ease soon after we left and they seemed to have great days. Lilie was always happy to see us come home, but made a point to give Melanie as hug and wave goodbye. That tells me she truly enjoyed Melanie’s company. Thank you!”

Gernigon Family – March 2024

“Melanie has been wonderful. My 2 year old immediately bonded with her. She was very professional and planned loads of activities for my 2 year old to do when everyone else was skiing, it definitely felt she had a holiday too due to all the wonderful trips Melanie planned. She even planned and created fun for my older 2 children. I cannot recommend Melanie enough she has simply been outstanding”

Cook Family – March 2024

“Wonderful service, great toys, Excellent Nanny that made every day far more special for our one year old son than we expected. He walked around on the snow near where his parents were skiing, went to watch an ice hockey practice game, enjoyed a giant christmas tree and so much more. We can’t thank Nicole & Melanie enough.

We’ll be back next year!”

Agarwal Family – Chalet Kalliste – February 2024

“We had a superbly professional, experienced and lovely nanny who connected with my 2 yo quickly. The agency is super responsive and informative. The toys, books and the stroller with a warm sleeve supplied were bang on.”

Slyunkova Family – Alpin Ruiter – February 2024

“Great service for pre booking, excellent experienced nanny very well adjusted to the skiing environment and activities, Melanie herself was very flexibility and adaptable to our plans and which kids she watched each day.”

Nicholls family – Chalet Meru – Feb 2024

“We were really happy with Meribel Nanny Services. Our nanny Melanie was extremely capable, sensible, and the kids loved her. Very happy to use again. Thank you!”

Mason family – Chalet Chamois – January 2024

“Melanie was a fantastic nanny from day one! She was calm, cool and collected, nothing was too much trouble and she had a lovely bond with both of my children. She was able to convince my slightly reluctant 2 year old that they were going to have way more fun in the snow with dinosaurs than we would have at skiing. He especially loved his trip to see the aeroplanes ???? and she slotted in beautifully with our big group of friends and family at lunch times and in the chalet. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thank you so much for making our holiday so much easier and enriching the children’s experiences in every way.”

Dodd Family – Chalet Chandon – January 2024

“Melanie has been absolutely wonderful!
Aaron being 12 it was mostly about taking care of Chloe but she still managed to create a good rapport with both. Chloe has a great time with her and she’s been very flexible – between ski classes and family outings on the slopes we didn’t have a linear schedule and she worked with us on it.
We’d happily recommend her to other families and have her with us again”
Okulair family – 2 weeks – December 2023

Melanie worked for us at the youth service of the city of Guebwiller, offering our mobile arts project, offering artistic activities to young children in the local neighbourhoods 6 – 18 years old. She carried out her with efficiency, flexibility and professionalism. She was especially appreciated by other members of her team for her investment, management and her ability to adapt.

Melanie was responsible for children 3 – 12 years in our hotel in the Dolomites, Italy. Her professionalism allowed the children to enjoy their holiday and both the children and adults were pleased. She was dynamic, happy and appreciated by all of our guests. Her motivation and energy allowed her to build trust with both the children and adults. She is at ease with all age groups and we have complete confidence in her.
