Tis the season to be skiing!

01Here in the UK we have had some beautiful freezing mornings, roaring fires, mince pies, lists for Santa, tree decorations and Christmas cards, all making this a delightful time of the year.
 
Our Nannies too are getting excited to start their journeys to their winter destination, to explore and get acquainted with the local amenities, to ensure that you get the most out of your holiday. Check out our new Nanny profiles at http://www.merinannies.com/index.php/our-service-nannies/nannies and keep an eye out for them in resort spotting their new uniforms and rucksacks. They are also getting prepared with craft activities to keep your little ones occupied indoors.

A few handy tips for travelling with the kids (first time)
 
02Travelling- the flights to your ski destination are fairly short, iPads/tablets are great to occupy your children in this time. Be prepared and download a few new games or a new film to capture their attention for more than 10 minutes! Snow books, Monty goes skiing is a lovely one, any winter books, or just scrap paper to draw a picture about skiing or what they think their nanny will look like. Sticker books are a great favourite too and there are many on the market around this time of year!

Make it an adventure! Especially if this is your child's first time travelling. Wrap small gifts to let them open along the journey. It can be anything from a new pack of colouring crayons, to their favourite snack.

Don’t leave home without! a change of clothes in your hand luggage. We hope it never happens to you, but luggage can get lost, so a spare set of clothes is very useful and takes one of the holiday stresses away!

Child essentials for your ski holiday 

Always have water & snacks to hand.
Good fitting gloves, goggles & sunglasses. If you get the children to try these things on before they go away that can be extremely useful too.

Gloves that can be attached together or mittens. And WATERPROOF. There is nothing worse than cold hands.
Clothing layers, it goes from hot to cold and vice versa very quickly.
The one thing to pack extra would be nappies & baby wipes – they can be very expensive in resort.
Transfers can be long & windy – medication for travel with sick children.
Entertainment for the journeys!
Your Christmas gift!

Last chance for summer deals

2Are you spending enough time with your kids or has your summer nearly ended?
Don’t procrastinate! Your time has come and August is still hot, weather wise and offer alike.

Greece has been one of the top destinations this summer and while it remains warm in September and October, now is the best time to enjoy some excellent deals.
Our www.kidsingreece.com Nannies have been delightful and have received great feedback from our clients, here are some comments…:

“Fantastic service, our holiday would not have been the same without your nannies! The fact that they can speak Greek too makes it easier when we try to organise time out and activities”

3“She is so warm and welcoming, with a smile on her face, everything seems easy and relaxing when she is around….a nanny service we will always come back to! Thank you”

We operate in the Aegean, the Ionian Islands, the Dodecanese and Athens. BUT…if your mind has started to drift in to winter wonderlands no worries, we are ready!

 

Recruitment is well underway
The good news? Most of our delightful nannies are coming back this winter! Phew!
At www.merinannies.com we have almost completed our nanny recruitment , and we are filling up weeks in the diary. Peak times are almost full but we anticipate having more nannies so please ask!
 
4Meribel , Courchevel, St Anton  and Chamonix are renowned for their early snow so if you prefer to ski on quiet slopes we are here to help with the kids. Our nannies will be in resort from the start of December and will know all the best sledging areas and plan adventures in the
woods.

So, all you need to do, is book your flights and give us a call!
In the meantime, just like me, enjoy the kids before schools start!

 

I hope to see you soon
 
Warm regards

We are going on a summer holiday...

We are going on a summer holiday...
 

Decisison, decisions….if you have not secured your summer holiday yet let us give you some inspiration…
Whether this  means relaxing by the pool or an action packed break we have spread our nanny services to all the Greek Islands and mainland Greece
 
AND … we offer childcare for babies  from 4 weeks to 14 years,  for a few hours, days, weeks and even longer term as well as live-in nannies too.

We have a dedicated team who believe a professional and caring service is fundamental in providing childcare, which is second to none.  
At ‘Kidsingreece’ the sister company of ‘Merrinannies’ we can guarantee premier childcare services when you  decide to take that well-earned break.
 
Premier because we only select the highest qualified nannies who, often have a university background or are qualified teachers. We also look for nannies who are bilingual and have previous experience in child care and in Greece they will be familiar with the locality. 
 
At Kidsingreece we vet and interview our nannies .Over the years this attention to detail and our caring attitude towards our nannies
and families has proved dividend as we were awarded the ‘Best Childcare Centre Prize’ in 2012. It will therefore come as no surprise that we have families who return to use our services every year in the Alps but who are also using our services when holidaying in Greece.
 
So if you are hoping to escape to mainland Greece or one of it’s many beautiful Islands, where you will find some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe, breathtaking scenery, delectable local cuisine not to mention some fabulous hotels and villas let Kidsingreece ensure you can do all of these things knowing that your children have a memorable holiday.

Check out our resorts page and if you have any questions I would love to hear from you

Warm regards
