Hello my name is Ella and I am from England. I have been living in Tignes for four years now, starting here as a chalet host and now working as a nanny.
I began working with children in my drama club, teaching the younger groups. This was great for developing communication skills, helping children to recognise emotion and storytelling.
After university, I wanted to travel and a job as a chalet host opened the door to exploring France. I now freelance in work across the entire tourism industry.
I began babysitting in Tignes and Val d'Isere for some of the chalet's visitors and also resident babies, toddlers and children. I really enjoy working with a young age group so I enrolled on an online course in childcare for the Early Years. This year, I am chalet hosting and working with children during the holidays.
I really enjoy being outside with the children catching the sun in the play park, sledging and building snowmen. I can teach children how to bake the scrummy cakes I make in the chalets, but with a lot more drizzly icing and sweet toppings. You can count on me to cook up a nutritious lunch also!
