Little Chicks Childcare

Laura Fitzmaurice - 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.

Kirstin - Val d'Isere - Nanny & Lauras personal nanny.!

£0
Hi, my name is Kirstin, I am 25, and I'm from Florida!
I have been working with kids for most of my life, being a babysitter, nanny, and au pair 3 times!
I have experience with kids of all ages and watching multiple children at once. I have also cared for children with a range of special needs, such as, autism, Downs syndrome, and cerebral palsy.
On top of this I worked for a non-profit organisation at University that supported the fight against childhood illness, which was an amazing experience. When I'm not traveling I work as a medical assistant in my hometown. This is my second winter season, with my first being in New Zealand.
It's definitely a change of scenery from the Florida beaches and learning to snowboard has been an interesting challenge, but I love being in the snow. I am so excited for this season and look forward to meeting everyone along the way!

Emma- Val d'Isere - 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!

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!

Helene - Half term nanny

Hello I’m Helene, I’m 21 and have been working part-time as a nanny since I was 17. I started working for some family friends and looking after their children after school when I was completing my A Levels. They then asked me to continue and become their full-time live-in nanny when I was taking a gap year at the age of 18. I did this for six months before spending six months working for a charity in Kenya called L’Arche. In this job, I was taking care of and offering occupational therapy to adults with learning disabilities. Through both of these jobs I developed my passion for caring for others. I then went to University in Bath to study Education Studies; I am currently in my third year and hope to become a Primary School Teacher and specialise in teaching children with additional needs. Working for Little Chicks is great for me as I can do it alongside my studies. Last year I went to Val D’Isère during my Easter Holidays and enjoyed it so much I knew I wanted to do more of it, so I am really looking forward to working with them more in the future!
