These are a few comments from our nannies….
“Looking back in the past four years, I would like to warmly thank Katia for our wonderful time together… It is the 4th season of our cooperation and I have only beautiful memories to share! With Kidsingreece and Merinannies I have met wonderful people and travelled to several destinations gaining invaluable experiences. All this would not have happened without Katia’s help. Katia takes genuine care of us individually, she advises and supports unconditionally by always being there in every step of each job at anytime of the day !Katia says “when something revitalises you never give it up, no matter of age or situation”….But most importantly Katia has huge knowledge in matters involving childcare, and customer and nanny satisfaction. Many thanks one more time, I hope we will continue to work together for many more years to come!”
“I really enjoyed spending Christmas with small children. We went sledging, built snowmen and drank hot chocolates. What a wonderful way to spend Christmas!!”
“I am extremely happy to be working with Katia as a Merinanny.”
“Many seasonaires earn very little money, however, as a Merinanny I have been able to save money during the season.”
I am very grateful to Katia for all she has done for me throughout the year. My experience as a Merinanny was truly fantastic and I highly recommend becoming a Merinanny to any professional childcarer
“By the time I arrived in Meribel in late November Katia had secured me 12 bookings.”
“Katia cares about her staff and she also understands what living and working in a ski resort is like. I beleive that Katias empathy with her nannies position makes her extremely lovely to work for.”
“The bookings and families you brought to me in Verbier have always been a delight to work for and fabulous experiences as a nanny. You have been very helpufl and professional with me. And I really enjoyed working with you, and would work again with you. I love my job and I’m grateful that you gave me the opportunity to work as Independently as I do now.”
“It has always been a pleasure working for you and I have always felt that I have your support and understanding. I know that you are at the end of the phone if if I have any questions or I need to check anything.”
“I could not believe that I had so much work once I arrived in St Anton, thank you, I really enjoyed myself…hope to join you in another Austrian resort next season.”
“I’ve had some great clients and children again this year and have had more than enough work as usual, despite me having my usual mid season panic haha! 3 Valleys nanny”
“I have enjoyed working for Merinannies and I have had enough work in Samoens to keep me comfortable. The skiing of course has also been fab, such a nice area to ski.”
“Thank you for a fantastic season in Megeve. I loved it so much out there. Hope to see you next season. Keep in touch.
“I have loved the season! The skiing was great for most of the season even with the lack of the snow and the value of the season pass in Grand Massif is outstanding if buying early and getting the deal.”
“It’s been a great season working with Merinannies and I have enjoyed every bit of it. The families and children have been great and I can’t wait to return next season in St Anton”

What we are looking for
Most importantly a genuine interest in children and babies, enthusiasm, energy, common sense and sense of humour.
Independent and dynamic professionals who can work unsupervised.
Qualification in childcare, teaching, health or caring backed up with checkable references
Age 24 or over
At least 3 year’s paid childcare experience (nursery, teaching, nanny, childminder, mother)
UK or EU passport or working visa
Travel insurance with medical
Accommodation (we usually find this)
You must speak fluent English
First aid certificate
Desirable but not essential
Food hygiene background
These will vary from job to job. Some placements will be full time, usually 9am to 5pm, some part time either morning or afternoon only. Some placements will be a mixture of hours in the day or evening.
You will be looking after children or babies, ages from 3 months to 13 years, in their chalet or hotel, or will be asked to take them out to play in the snow, meet with other nannies and children, or to meet with the parents for lunch.
Some families might ask you to take the children on a ride in a gondola or sledging (safety first!). Sometimes you just have to take a toddler for a nice stroll in town and a hot drink. Often your duty will be to pick up from the ski school or kindergarten.You might be asked to carry the children’s skis if they are too tired.
If you play indoors you will just have to be creative and use your imagination (we can offer training on activities and care). You will prepare lunch and snacks for the tired children. Mainly you will be carrying out duties requested by the eager skiers who will be keen to go out and leave you at home with their precious children, in the knowledge that you will keep them happy and safe until they get back.
Merinannies encourage a friendly but professional and courteous approach to the clients’ needs.
Pay Rates/Hours of work
The rates vary from day to evening work and with your qualifications or experience. You can earn up to €700 per week for a full time job. You also normally get a good tip if the children are happy and the mothers too!
Merinannies offer a flexible service so you will be able to work as much or as little as you wish so that you can fit work around your skiing or boarding requirements.
