Suzy Prior is 49 years old and has a Level 3 Diploma in Specialist Support for Teaching and Learning in schools as well as a OCR level 3 Certificate in Cover and Supervision of Children in Schools, along with 7 years experience working and volunteering with children (plus 20 years bringing up her own 2 children) She has a clean DBS checked and First Aid trained.
Suzy is returning to us for winter 2020/21 for her 2nd season, last season all of her families absolutely loved her and many have already pre booked her for next season, Suzy is lots of fun and has so many great activity ideas that she has bought with her from working in schools, during winter 2019/20 she cared for children from 5 months up to 12 years and cannot wait to be back in resort again.
From 2012 – 2019 Suzy worked in the same school in the UK as a teaching assistant, her main duties were to support the class teacher, working with small groups of low ability children, maintaining good behaviour and admin support. During her first 3 years, she also studied to gain her Specialist Support Certificate so she could take a future job as a higher level teaching assistant, which she was offered in 2015 in the same school.
In 2015 as a Higher Level Teaching Assistant Suzy’s job was to work closely with the class teacher supporting the teacher and the children as well as leading small intervention groups on a daily basis for maths, planning and teaching a PSHCE (personal, social, health, citizenship education) class and working 1:1 with a year 3 child who has special educational needs; supporting him and ensuring his work is differentiated for his ability.
During her time at the school Suzy attended numerous training sessions regarding autism, epilepsy, challenging behaviour, safeguarding, supporting the language impaired child and first aid.
Her references had lovely things to say about her! “Suzy is a Bubbly, Friendly, Conscientious and very kind lady who is approachable, kind and perceptive of both Adults and childrens needs. She has excellent relationships with the children and is always calm”
“Suzy is very professional and positive – it was a pleasure to have her looking after Oliver as we immediately noticed how experienced and comfortable she was around children. We would without hesitation use Suzy again as she’s a wonderful carer; we are further happy to recommend her as a sole care nanny to other families”

Our booked nanny (with another service) became sick at the last minute so we were so pleased that you were able to help out at such short notice. Suzy was a dream, a very friendly and competent person who we immediately felt at ease to leave our children with. They were very happy with her. We would definitely ask for her again on our next visit to Meribel. Thanks very much
Batt – Pierre Vacance – Meribel – January 2020
Suzy was really nice and the children took to her straight away, which made us feel much better about leaving them. She came bearing toys which the children enjoyed and they went off to make snowmen and play in the park. Suzy was happy to meet us wherever we wanted and was very flexible with this. All round a good experience as this was a first for us. We wouldn’t hesitate to use Meribel Nanny Services and Susy again.
Vaizey – Les Allues – Feb 2020
Suzy was absolutely brilliant. She looked after our girls aged 8 & 6 for 2 afternoons. She was told that the girls liked craft activities. I thought we’d come back to things stuck to paper plates and a bit of colouring in – no! She taught them origami!! Absolutely amazing. There were tears when Suzy left and we’ll definitely ask for Suzy again the next time we are in Méribel. Thank you so much!!
