Sarah, Director & Owner, talks us through the ins and outs of Alpine Angels Childcare Ltd and why she thinks it’s the best option for childcare on your next family ski holiday….
There are lots of childcare options in popular ski resorts – what kind of options does Alpine Angels offer parents travelling with their children and what are the benefits of a private nanny?
Alpine Angels provides parents with flexible & affordable private childcare options for their children 24 hours a day! As a company we can provide private nannies for full or part-time childcare throughout the day, evening babysitting services or even overnight childcare. The service is flexible with both the full and part time options – bookings are allocated within a time frame whereby clients can change the times of their bookings to suit them each day. The service is provided in and around the clients accommodation with both indoor and outdoor activities. Nannies can pick up and drop of at ski lessons or meet parent throughout the day if requested.
What kind of activities can the children enjoy with their nanny?
All our nannies have lots of experience in entertaining children! Activities nannies might organise for the children could include arts & crafts such as making winter decorations, reading storybooks, making snowmen, tobogganing & ice-skating. It all depends on age and ability but there is something for every child! The best part about having a private nanny is that their full attention is on your children so every activity can be their choice. Readers can check the feature blogs on our website about all the great activities on offer in each resort we operate in.
But isn’t hiring a private nanny really expensive?
Not at all! At Alpine Angels Childcare we try to ensure our prices fit with our competitors whether they offer private or group childcare options. We ensure we are open & honest about our rates – one flat rate for everyone, every week of the season. We don’t change our rates depending on the week you are looking to book a nanny. We also offer a price match guarantee with a 5% discount for the same service in the same resorts so you cant loose by booking with us!
How do parents know the nanny looking after their child is capable & their child is safe?
Every nanny that works with Alpine Angels has at least 2 years of previous professional childcare experience either through teaching young children, working as an Au Pair or similar. They have also provided us with 2 excellent references from previous childcare employers as well as a criminal record check and first aid certificate. As well as fitting this criteria it is important to us that all our nannies have the right attitude for this type of work and can uphold the companies ‘friendly yet professional’ ethos which we ensure when interviewing them.
Can parents find out more about the nannies that might be looking after their children?
Yes, on our website we have individual nanny profiles where you can see a picture of all our nannies and find out a little more about them. On our blog we also post about a nanny every couple weeks in more detail and include their references for parents to read!
Are there any plans for the business to expand? Will we be seeing Alpine Angels Childcare in any other resorts?
Yes definitely! We have plans to offer to private childcare in other resorts within the Alps next year but are yet to confirm which ones. Keep an eye on our website below after this winter to find out more.
