We are very excited to have Michaela joining us for her 3rd winter season, she first joined us for winter 2019/20 to help us during our busy weeks, all of the families who booked her over the last few seasons, have absolutely loved her and have requested her back on their return this season. Micheala has cared for children from new born up to 12 years with us and particularly loves the little ones
Micheala is 42 years old and has lived in the 3 valleys for over 10 years. A mother to 3 children now, 20, 22 and 11 years old, Michaela has been working with children on and off since she was 18 years old.
Her first position working with children was at 18 years old as an Aupair for 3 years, where she helped care for 4 children who were (When she started with them) New-born, aged 2, 4 and 7 years old.
In 2006 Michaela spent a year as a nanny caring for a 4-year-old boy 24/7 travelling with the parents who had to travel a lot with work, She travelled with them to many destinations around, France, Italy, Ireland, Czech Republic and Austria, entertaining the 4 year old, preparing meals, bath time and bedtime routines etc.
In 2008 she moved to the 3 valleys and became an Estate Agent, helping to sell properties in the courchevel valley, this was a highly stressful role with very long hours which sadly did not fit in well around family life and after 4 years she decided it was time for a change.
Since having her 3rd boy and finishing her job at the estate agents, Michaela has worked with many local families caring for their children on the weekends and during the school holidays. Now her Son is 11 years old and spends long days in school and clubs she is excited to be doing more and more childcare bookings for us and has many families returning year after year, filling up her season.
Michaela has a wide range of experience with children and speaks fluent English, French and basic German, she came highly recommended by one of our long standing freelance nannies and we are very happy to have her on our team.
“Michaela was incredible, so friendly, fun, capable and Great with Jasper he really loved spending time with her which made me feel really at ease given how young he is and given that we jave not left him with many people. we would love to come back to you guys when we are next in Meribel”

“We met Michaela and immediately warmed to her nurturing and warm approach. She understood our 4 year old daughter very well in terms of what she wanted and needed, and they spent a wonderful 4 days sledging, building snowman and playing games. Michaela is very personable and was even able to teach Arya a little bit of french, something our daughter is very proud of! We certainly wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Michaela as a nanny – she’s wonderful!”

We are so very grateful and on that note could we please book Michaela again for w/c 13 February 2021? “
