Matilda Elizabeth - " Yep I am the youngest member of the team and I agree with everything my big brother says ! I was born 21st November 2017 and Mummy decided to go straight back to work with me in toe so I know the team pretty well ! Training was fun I must say ... "

Laura Fitzmaurice
France, Italy and the UK
Company director

Since the age of 14 I have been working with children in a whole range of roles from gymnastic coaching to working in a nursery; from Camp America to private nannying and the list really does go on. I think it is fair to say that I love working with children; no matter what their age! Throughout my teens and twenties I studied for several years to obtain my Level 3 Childcare qualification and also a degree in Early Years Childhood Studies.
After catching the seasonaire bug and meeting my partner, Max (who is not only a ski instructor but a very handy office helper) I started Little Chicks Childcare in July 2013 and have never looked back. I now spend my summers in the beautiful Dolomites, Italy, running an English camp for Italian children and my winters in Val d'Isère running Little Chicks Childcare with my fantastic team of nannies.

Emma
Val d'Isere
Part time nanny

Hello, I’m Emma, I’m 23 and I live in a small town in central Scotland called Stirling. I volunteered as a sports coach from the age of 16 and completed various placements in both primary and secondary schools. It was then I discovered my love for working with children and decided I wanted to pursue a career in childcare. I attained a HND in Sports Coaching with the Development of Sport whilst at college, I then went on to university where I graduated with a Honours Degree in Sport Studies. During my three years at university I was a support worker and worked with children aged 0-18 which helped me develop my skills and knowledge a great deal. My role in this job was to assist children in day to day life and organise lots of fun and engaging activities for them. After university I started working as a sports coach, which involved me teaching ten different sports to children aged between 3 and 9. Every week we coach a different sport, so I am very used to change and working flexibly. I have never done a ski season before but I absolutely love new adventures so I’ll look forward to seeing everyone this coming winter!

Lulu
Val d'Isere
Half term Nanny

Hi, I’m Lulu, I’m 20 and from North Yorkshire. Last Easter I spent 3 weeks as a Little Chick’s nanny in Val d’Isere and loved it so much I’m back for the full season! I’ve worked with children for the last 4 years, I currently work in a nursery in a small village, looking after children aged 0-5 years. I’m also currently working towards my level 3 award in childcare and education. I spent the last year training to be a children’s nurse meaning I’ve worked with children from tiny premature babies right the way up to 17-year olds. My 650 hours of hospital placements means I have also looked after children with a wide range of health problems and special needs. I’ve done private nannying for different families each summer holidays since 2014, and I’ve also spent a year volunteering at my local gymnastics club with children aged 4-11. My favourite activities in Val d’Isere are sledging and snow painting – I’ll also take any opportunity to jump into the swimming pool! I’m so excited to be spending the full season out in the Alps – see you there!

Jess
Half term nanny

I’m 23 years old and from a small hamlet in Somerset in the South West of England. My interest in working with children began from the early age of 16 when I spent my summer holidays teaching young/beginner riders at my local riding stables. From here, I was offered a work experience placement at a private school for children with autism, where I assisted staff within the occupational therapy team to deliver horse riding lessons to the children. Whilst at the school, I was able to develop an understanding of how different methods and approaches are used to help children with ASD engage with learning. This experience shaped my choice in my personal growth as I went on to graduate with a BA (hons) in Educational Studies with Psychology. During and subsequent to my university years I have relished all relevant experiences in childcare, from working as a classroom assistant in nurseries and primary schools, to spending a summer in America as a camp counsellor and two summers at Clifton College Summer Language School! For the past two Easters holidays I have successfully nannied for Little Chicks Childcare in Val D’isere. My love for the snow makes me a great hit with the children, and with my boundless energy and endless enthusiasm you can always expect to find me on the move with my charges. My favourite activates whilst in the Apls include; snowball fights, bubble rides to spot the parents skiing, snowman building and sledging! At home I work within the education sector and I am currently working towards my PGCE at a co-ed preparatory school in Bath, Somerset. With my love for the snow and working with children I simply cannot be kept away so this year I will be spending my school vacations working in Alps! I look forwarding to seeing you at Christmas, February and Easter!
This year I have spent my summer in Italy, at Camp Marmot in Sappada. With my boundless amounts of energy and enthusiasm you can always expect to find me deep in exciting activities with the children!

Hello, I’m Emily, I’m 21 from Edinburgh in Scotland. I’ve been working with children since I was 15 and have my level 3 in Childcare. I’ve worked with children from 3 months to 14 years. While working towards my qualification I was based in a preschool and have also worked in summer camps and kids clubs over 5s. This will be my second season with little chicks and third overall. I’m so excited to be returning and waking up surrounded by the snow knowing that each week is different and incredibly fun. I can’t wait to get back on the slopes, getting messy with arts and crafts, rocking some questionable face paint all day and most importantly make sure every families has the best holiday they possible can. I can’t wait to meet you all!
