Hello my name is Hannah 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. During this time, I studied at the Manchester School of Arts.
After university, I wanted to travel a job as a chalet host opened the door to exploring France. I now freelance in this kind of work and actually spent a few weeks this Summer independently running a beautiful villa in Bordeaux.
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 contracted to care for Catissa's baby boy but when I am not needed to care for him, I will be caring for children visiting on holiday. I am helping to organise the weekly baby and toddler social groups. This involves making sensory activities, fun games with song and dance as well as make some well deserved cakes for the nannies and parents.
I really enjoy being outside with the children catching the sun in the play park or taking babies for relaxing long walks. The swimming pool is a lovely place to spend the afternoon. Quite often I arrange with nannies to meet here so the toddlers can play with each other in the baby pool.
Inside I like to bake with the children, either cooking up a nutricious lunch or a special yummy treat.
I live in Tignes with my own little fur-baby Luna.
