3 , 6 and 9 year old , La Plagne
I just wanted to write, now our week has come to an end, to say how impressed we were with Tee. She was so well prepared and flexible too. To keep 3 children of such different ages (3, 6 & 9) entertained is no mean feat and she did brilliantly. She had activities planned when we met the night before, but came up with extra ones during the week, especially to challenge the 9 year old once she had met him properly – he was particularly pleased with the Geography challenge on one of their bus trips! When she picked the three of them up from ski school each day she sent us reports on how well they had done, and then at the end of each day she gave full reports on what activities they had done, what they had eaten, how they had earned their reward stickers and so on. She kept us updated with so many photos and videos during the afternoon which are just wonderful to receive and so reassuring. She was so good at bringing the children to meet with us when and where we wanted and nothing was too much trouble. The children all loved her, obviously, as did we.
Thank you again for finding her and for ensuring that we had such a wonderful week.
Rory 1 year old , La Plagne
We just wanted to say thank you so much for organising Shauna to look after Rory in la plagne 1800 for us 2 weeks ago.
She was brilliant and worked very hard, Rory loved her and seemed to enjoy spending time with her. She kept us updated during the days with what they were up to with photos and messages which we really appreciated and made us feel at ease leaving him with her.
We wouldn’t hesitate to use Shauna again and would recommend her and your company to friends.
Kira was fab this week looking after Jossy, Emily & Sophie in La Plagne. Super flexible on timings and which combo of kids she had with her which allowed the four adults a really great chance to get out on the slopes and ski. The kids were all happy and had a great time too. Thank you.
3 and 6 year old , Val d'Isere
Emma, was absolutely amazing. She is such a credit to your business and is possibly (definitely) the best nanny we have had on any of our international trips (and we’ve had plenty!!!)
She was amazing with the kids, nothing was too much trouble, she was flexible with after hours work- all in all she was nothing short of fabulous!!!!! You are so lucky to have her!!
Me and the kids had an amazing 2 weeks with her and the girls were actually talking about her last weekend!!!!
Can’t speak highly enough of her, and if she’s back next year- we definitely want her!!!!!
Thanks again for organising .
We look forward to using you guys when in Val again next year 🐣
Enjoy the rest of the season!!!!
5 and 6 year old , Val d'Isere
‘Knowing our children are safe and enjoying themselves whilst we’re out skiing is worth its weight in gold for us.
Little Chicks were excellent this winter and we’re the key element to making a fabulous family holiday.
Emma our nanny was superb and gained the children’s and our confidence instantly.
She made the phaff of getting to the slopes fun, always being present for the boys and providing us with the flexibility we required.
Whether it was meeting us at the top of the mountain or finding a fun afternoon activity for the boys, Emma was brilliant. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Little Chicks again and indeed they are the principle reason we will holiday in the resort again next year’. 🐣
Charlie 2 , Val d'Isere
This was our first time using childcare whilst on holiday, so naturally we were slightly apprehensive, but we needn’t have been!
Shannon met us as soon as we came off the coach, with a big chick suitcase full of toys for Charlie & a suitable pram. When we got into the chalet, Shannon explained that she would do different activities with Charlie and what there was to do around the Val-d’Isère resort.
Shannon was extremely flexible with timings which worked great as we finished early & later on a couple of occasions.
She reassured us each afternoon that Charlie was fine & happy by sending us lots of messages & lots of beautiful pictures, which was wonderful to see, all the different activities he was getting up to - colouring, painting, going for walks in the snow, the farm, going in the bubble to the kids area on the slopes, soft play and more! & it lovely to see they met up with another nanny so Charlie was able to play with other children!
So we’d just like to say a massive thank you to both, Laura & Shannon for making the whole experience a breeze! We’ll definitely be using Little chicks again! ❤️🐣
We’ve used Little Chicks in Val d’Isere twice now and I’ve found Laura and her team to be really friendly and helpful. The nannies are positive and calm with young children and I haven’t hesitated to leave mine behind and hit the slopes! They are well versed in the different activities available in the resort so the children never get bored. And it’s great being able to use a daytime nanny as an evening babysitter so that there’s no risk of your children being unsettled by somebody new.
We’ll be back! ❤️
Ida , Val d'Isere
Thank you for assigning the wonderful Jess to take care of Ida last week.
I couldn’t have asked for a better solution and I felt that Ida was in good hands, the moment I met Jess.
All of the girls I met from Little Chicks were super friendly and mega professional.
Livy , La Plagne
Just wanted to drop a note to say how incredible Emily was last week. She instantly connected with the kids and put loads of effort into meeting their needs.
The only problem we had was that on our return to the UK, Livy (our daughter) got very upset when she realised she wouldn't be able to play with Emily the next day. When asked what was best about her holiday in the mountains her response was 'Playing with Emily'!
Thanks so much - we were delighted in every way with our super-Nanny!!
Teddy , Tignes
We have just got home from a tiring week thanks to bad travels, thankfully this was made far more restful and enjoyable thanks to the wonderful childcare we received from shawney at little chicks.
I must say I was nervous about leaving my little teddy with a Nannie but he took to her immediately as did my daughter in the small amount of time she spent with her.
Nothing was too much bother and she made our week so much more amazing.
I would recommend this company to anyone!
Fab job Laura thanks to you and shawney!
2 year old, Val d'Isere
Prior to our return visit to Val D'isere we contacted Laura at Little Chicks.
Despite the short notice she organised a fantastic nanny for us and reassured any questions we had.
Our Nanny, Emma, arrived promptly every morning and made an instant rapport with our daughter. She listened to our normal routines and tried to reflect them in resort so as not to disrupt it whilst on holiday.
She took F out every day to play in the snow, trips to the farm and even swimming. F had a very enjoyable week and we were able to go off skiing knowing she was safe and being entertained non stop!
5 -11 year olds, La Plagne
Little Chicks does it again!
Laura (owner) has a calm, friendly, patient and professional attitude and managed to resolve our ever changing plans. She was faultless. She successfully found us a perfect person for our group of 8 children (with another young lady).
Jess was lovely, very qualified with loads of experience with dealing with multiple children. She looked after our children fantastically. She was fun, confident and completely in control. She was a pleasure to have around making our holiday really amazing. We were able to relax in the knowledge our children were safe. The children really bonded with her, over the week and they were very sad when the week came to an end.
I would like to keep Little Chicks as my little secret but great secrets like this one can’t stay secret for long! I wouldn’t hesitate recommending Little Chicks to anyone!
However if your thinking of booking Jess, sorry we want her!
3 & 5 year olds, Val d'Isere
We used Little Chicks for a week over Christmas and they were nothing short of fantastic! The children immediately warmed to Kayleigh, and were more than happy to spend the afternoons with her. She was incredibly flexible with timing which allowed us to have lunch with them on some days or she would pick them up from ski school. Kayleigh organized lots of fun activities for the afternoons but it was wonderful to have the option of them going home for a nap, if they were tired. We’ve booked Little Chicks again for our next trip to Valdisere and I wish there was a similar service in other resorts
Abby 16, Val d'Isere
This is the second time we have used Little Chicks and they were fantastic both times.
I have a teenage daughter with special needs who doesn’t ski and Laura was so accommodating and helpful regarding setting up a week of care for her.
We had Emma for the week who was lovely. Nothing phased her (Abby can be a bit challenging at times!). She arrived punctually everyday, was very flexible with timings and was always pleased to see Abby and full of ideas as to how to entertain her. They went bowling, swimming, for rides in the lifts, trips on the buses or just chilled in the chalet if that’s what Abby wanted.
Going out for lunch was Abby’s favourite activity! Emma was open to any suggestions and always enthusiastic and cheerful. I was more than happy to leave Abby in her capable hands. Abby had a great week - thank you Emma and thank you Laura. We’ll be back!”
2 years old, La Plagne
We used Little Chicks in Feb to look after our 2 year old boy whilst his big sister and brother went to ski school and lunch club. We have never used any holiday childcare before so were a bit anxious but needn't have been as everything was perfect. Communication with Laura beforehand was great and she allayed a lot of concerns. Our nanny Christina contacted us a couple of days beforehand to introduce herself and organise meeting the afternoon/evening before she started so sh...e could meet Freddie and us and we could talk through everything. This was a huge relief! She was great - personable and professional and Fred adored her and is still talking about his Rireena! She came to pick him up from the chalet every morning which made ski school drop off much easier. Fred was upset at being left but she had him giggling and distracted within moments. She brought some toys to the chalet and they did lots of drawing and playing and also were out and about a lot building snowmen, toboganning, having playdates with other nannies and children and lots of facepainting which he loved - he still thinks he is batman! She set up a what's app group with us and sent pictures of him so we could see how happy he was through the day. It was so nice to know that he was safe, well looked after and having a brilliant holiday whilst we were skiing. She met us with him at lunch club so we could pick all the kids up together which was really useful. Little Chicks were brilliant and we would highly recommend both Little Chicks and Christina. Thank you for making our holiday so great.
Jossi and family Feb 2018
Says it all - thank You!
Lexi 2, Tobi 5 Val d'Isere
Little chicks and rose were absolutely fantastic.
Right from the start of enquiry to saying goodbye to Rose.
You were so efficient and helpful with our booking.
Rose was brilliant. She turned up on time everyday and nothing was too much trouble. She sent us regular photos of what she was up to with Lexie (2) and Toby (5).
We had full faith in her and it was so nice to head off skiing knowing that Lexie was having fun too. ...
We would definitely use your company again - just need to get in their quick before everyone else does as you are so popular!!!
We had a wonderful holiday and Emma was absolutely fantastic.
The kids loved her and she was amazing with them.
We couldn’t have had a better nanny.
I hope she comes back next year!
Top line all wonderful... we would be happy/ delighted to have Nat again. She was lovely but I believe kindly firm with the children ( Dot can be a little strong willed...) both children had lots of holiday fun!!
Nat was happy and accommodating at all times with their requests! She made multiple visits to the farm as they asked... climbing wall and swimming..
She joined them in their games... Dolphins etc in the pool..., battles with playmobile and when reluctant she still ...manovered children to ski school 😝!!
On top of this Nat was patient and helpful with us as my indecision and forgetfulness could be frustrating to some! Nat also adapted wonderfully to our multiple changes of accommodation.
Everything was wonderful
Elizabeth 2, Val d'Isere
We had an amazing time in Val this year and Emily was fantastic looking after Elizabeth.
She sent us some updates and pictures throughout the day so we knew we could fully relax and enjoy our skiing.
7&3 year old, Val D'isere
I just wanted to thank you for arranging Emma for our stay in Val D'Isere, and to let you know how wonderful she is.
The kids are still raving about her!
It was so nice to know they were in safe, enthusiastic hands.
We will certainly use/recommend Little Chicks in future....
Rollo 4 , Betty 7, Lily 7, Jack 10 - Val d'Isere
The kids adored Robyn and it was great to see the them head off each day for another adventure.
Robyn put in a lot of time to think of new and fun activities and was so successful that sometimes it was hard to persuade the kids to come skiing.
She was more than happy to pitch in where needed and nothing was too much trouble.
Robyn was a joy to have around and I trusted her implicitly.
The only downside for the kids was that she couldn't come home with us
Taylor 2 years and Theo 3 months - Val d'Isere
I just wanted to say a big thank you for Little Chicks’ help whilst we were in Val D’Isere last week.
Rachael, our nanny, was just superb - so friendly, attentive, proactive and great with both my little boys.
And thank you for providing all the toys (including some much loved cars and vehicles) and the nappies, steriliser etc.
It made the whole trip easier than it otherwise would have been.
I look forward to working with your company again for future ski trips!
Vivien 3 , Helena 4 - Val d'Isere
Thank you so much for looking after Vivien and Helena so well this week.
They both adored Nat, and so did we. She was absolutely lovely and full of energy.
The transition from ski school to Nat was seamless leaving Camilla and I able to fully appreciate our day knowing they were being well looked after and throughly enjoying themselves.
Hope to repeat next year.
Archie 5 , Sam 3 - Val d'Isere
I just wanted to let you know what a fantastic success Leah was with the boys!
She was absolutely brilliant, the boys adored her and I felt so relaxed knowing she was looking after them.
Huge thanks to you too for helping and arranging at such short notice.
I have been recommending you to everyone and won’t hesitate to use your company in the future.
Hayden 3 , Toby 18m - Val d'Isere
We would like to say a huge thank you to Alice who has been with us over the last week.
She was absolutely fantastic and we could not have been happier with the care she gave to our boys.
It's the first time we have left our little boy with anyone except family but we really didn't need to worry.
He was so happy with her and we got regular updates through the day with what they were up to which meant we could have fun on the slopes without stressing about him. Little Chicks enabled us to pick and choose the timings we had care and that meant we could work around our other little boys ski lessons and any nap/food times. We have been raving about our holiday since getting home and definitely hope to return to Val next year with friends and have Alice look after the children.
Joshua 6 , Alyssa 4 months - La Plagne
I would just like to say thank you so much for an excellent service.
Sophie was so lovely and Alyssa and Joshua really did enjoy there time with her.
Alyssa was always happy when we came back. I did feel sorry for Sophie being stuck in but I was happy that she was able to get out using our baby carrier. Nice that she took Alyssa out for fresh air.
Again thank you so much and if we do decide to take Alyssa next year I will certainly use you again.
Thank you again
Henry 22 months - Val d'Isere
We have just got home from an amazing week in Val and just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to our amazing nanny Nina..... I was very nervous about leaving him but Nina was brilliant, taking him out, doing plenty of crafts, visiting the farm and going up the bubble lift which tired henry out for his afternoon naps.... perfect! It was lovely to get the updates throughout the day from Nina and very reassuring, she's a credit to your little chicks team and we will definitely be using you again when we return next year, now all I have to do is stop henry asking where "Ninattt" is! ☺thank you!
Archer 9 months - La Plagne
We are just home from a weeks skiing in La Plagne with our 10 year old in ski school and 9 month old being cared for by the wonderful Jacquie.
What a super time we have all had and so much of this I can attribute to Jacquie, from our first contact, to meeting her and leaving our little boy in her care she has been fantastic, she put me at ease with her professionalism and was so accommodating of our needs, but more importantly she is a complete natural with the little people, she has a calm and confident nature, wonderful ideas that kept Archer entertained and a real determination to ensure that he enjoyed his holiday so I could then enjoy mine.
Jacquie is a true asset to Little Chicks and I would highly recommend her and the company to others.
I hope we meet again in the future and that if we travel to La Plagne next year that we are able to get you booked in!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking such good care of our little guy and we wish you all the best for the future.
Elizabeth 8 months - Val d'Isere
Alice was absolutely fantastic and the big grin on Elizabeth's face every morning when she arrived meant I was completely at ease leaving her for the day.
Alice sent us a few updates throughout the day so we knew everything was fine so could really enjoy the skiing and vin chauds!
Lots of my friends who knew we were going away have asked how it went and Ive only got positive things to say so I think a few of them will be skiing next season and heading for Little Chicks resorts.
Louis 3 - Val d'Isere
We had a great time in Val D'Isere with Little Chicks childcare. The booking of the nanny service was really easy and quick and Laura was very attentive and flexible to all my requests in advance.
Our nanny, Polly, was fantastic during the week and our son enjoyed a very happy and fun few days with her while we could ski worry free.
Polly was totally engaged with Louis as soon as she met him and came armed with a case full of toys and bits and bobs which he loved.
She knew the resort really well so was full of ideas of what to do and took him out for an amazing activity each day. She was very professional and at the same time friendly and relaxed and we were all sorry to say goodbye at the end of our week!
Oli 15m - La Plagne
We're back from La Plagne and just wanted to say how wonderful Jacqui was with Oli. Her calm and laid back approach meant that Oli, and ourselves, immediately felt at ease with her.
She kept him busy indoors with creative crafts, and spent a good amount of time with him outside in the snow having adventures.
He's one of the first non family members he's ever gone up to for cuddles, and the seal of approval was confirmed when he gave her his favourite snuggly!
Thank you for a wonderful service.
Max 2 years, Poppy 3 years - La Plagne
I just wanted to give you some feedback about Jacquie – we really could not fault her.
She was absolutely lovely, the children loved her and she gave us complete confidence leaving our children with her.
Professional and punctual whilst being friendly, nice and thoughtful, sending us pictures of what the children were up to.
Poppy got home and asked if Jacquie would be coming to see her in London!
Please pass on our thanks again to Jacquie.
Olivia 2 - Val d'Isere
Just a few words you can use about how wonderful you and all your nannies are :-)
We live in Val d’Isere and Little Chicks Childcare is always our first port of call if we need a babysitter.
We have met a number of different nannies and would very highly recommend each and every one of them, they have all been wonderful.
One night we were a little anxious because our daughter had not been put to bed by anyone outside of the family but Dawn was fabulous getting right down to Olivia’s level, talking to her directly and creating some ad hoc games and activities whilst also putting us at ease and sending reassuring texts while we were out, which was lovely.
Sophie is also a wonderful bedtime story reader and hopefully Olivia will be awake to meet the lovely Alice at some point! And I must commend them all on the punctuality, not just on time but always early which is brilliant. A totally wonderful set up, super organised office with instant replies to nanny requests and amazingly friendly staff.
Our daughter is always happy to see a Little Chicks Nanny and is more than happy for Mummy and Daddy to go out and enjoy themselves - WIN WIN!!
When 16 members of our family come out on holiday together later in the season I have made sure they are booked in with Little Chicks as I know it will make for a great trip.
Emily & Ashleigh 6 , Madison 4 - Val d'Isere
Our 2 families had a wonderful time in Val d’Isere - including the 3 girls (4,6,6).
It was the trip of a lifetime, made possible with the help of Sophie at Little Chicks.
The 3 girls just loved playing with her and did not care, one little bit, that their parents were not picking them up from ski school at all. They enjoyed having lunch with Sophie, whether that be in the chalet or at a local cafe and then the games, craft, dance parties or visiting the local farm.
The girls still keep talking about the pigs playing in the mud and don’t stop giggling! It was fantastic having Sophie help us get the kids ready for skiing every morning (and breakfast) and then playing in the afternoon.
It truly helped make for our holiday, that little bit more relaxing knowing that a friendly, experienced nanny like Sophie was there with our girls. We didn’t want to leave and are already planning our next visit back.
I can highly recommend Little Chicks Childcare and their flexible hours.
Nola 19 Months - Val d'Isere
I just wanted to thank you for arranging and sending Shauna to us - we could not have asked for better, she is absolutely fantastic. I can honestly say I haven't had a better experience with childcare than I have had with Shauna/Little chicks.
Shauna was punctual, flexible, helpful, kind, she sent me pictures of her days out and was great with my daughter and I genuinely had no worries leaving her - straight away I got a fantastic vibe from her, something that money can't buy. It's a hard thought leaving your child with a stranger but having Shauna made it easy peasy!
She did all the hours we asked of her even when it was last minute, we always pushed the mornings back by 15 mins or so as I found myself running late all the time (children eh!!) and when she arrived she would always help me dress and prepare my daughter for the day or distract her so I could actually get ready!! She took my daughter out every day and got her breakfast etc. whenever she arrived my daughter was overjoyed to see her and whenever she left she would cry as she was sad she was leaving. Whenever I left for the day my daughter waved me off / usually initially cries but she was so happy in Shauna's company.
I was very impressed that Shauna had a lot of knowledge with regards to children and first aid and she even dressed her better than me so she didn't lose her mittens ! Tricks of the trade.
Anyway we woke up in England this morning and we miss Shauna!! I wish I could bring her home with me.
I have had a fantastic experience with Shauna/Little Chicks and would highly recommend you, which I will do on a mothers forum which has about 5000 mums following from my local area.
Again thanks so much for Shauna - she was a godsend and I won't forget her.
Attached a photo of my daughter and her bestie Shauna !
Until the next time!
Marnie 6 - Val d'Isere
We found our nanny Ceri to be wonderful, our daughter really enjoyed spending time with her. She was professional, positive and caring at all times. She handed her a little chick wheelie suitcase on the first day, to keep for the week and my daughter loved not only the arts and crafts contents but also the cuteness of the design of the case and did not want to be parted from it. It joined us for dinner on a couple of occasions! The fact she was more than happy to know Ceri would be picking her up from ski school, not us (and in fact looked forward to planning what they would do each afternoon), meant we didn't need to worry at all and knew she was safe, cared for and having lots of fun. It meant we could relax and enjoy our skiing. If we are in Val D'Isere in the future, I would definitely use Little chicks again !
Olivia 2 years , Freddie 8 months - Val d'Isere
'We could not recommend Little Chicks highly enough.
Laura was very professional from the start and thought carefully to allocate us with the nanny she thought was most suitable to our two children.
Alice, our nanny, was fantastic in every way. She was kind, mature, capable, responsible and fun.
Even though we had only just met her we knew she would be more than able to look after the children and we knew we could trust her. When our 8 month old became ill with a virus she dealt with it very well and immediately contacted us when she needed to.
The children had so much fun with Alice - going to the farm, doing face painting, going to the sports centre and the play cafe.
We would not hesitate to hire Alice again - we only wished we could take her home to London to nanny for us!'
Abby , 16 years - Val d'Isere
I cannot recommend Little Chicks highly enough!
Laura was really friendly and accommodating when I first contacted her and said it would be no problem to find someone to look after my teenager with special needs.
Alice the nanny was lovely and arrived punctually everyday.
She was really flexible with times and relaxed about whatever I asked her to do.
She took Abby out to do some wonderful things such as bowling, swimming and to a gym class.
She was really cheerful and fun and Abby loved her.
We were all sad to say goodbye at the end of the week.
Do not hesitate to use Little Chicks, they are brilliant!
Tilly & Izzy, 4 and 5 years old - Val d'Isere
We have just returned from a week in Val d'Isere and thanks to Isla the week was stress-free. She looked after our two girls (4&5) fantastically, she was engaging, fun responsible and most importantly the girls loved her and really looked forward to seeing her each morning as she also helped them, by chance at ski school (which was a real bonus!). I would have no hesitation in recommending Little Chicks and doubt we would go back to a package holiday (that we have usually done since children) as a result. Thank you!
Billy 10 months - Val d'Isere
I used Little Chick's over Christmas week in Val'disere - they were fantastic from start to finish. Laura juggled things around to fit in my ad hoc booking in the busiest week of the year, and the 2 nannies we had for the 4 days were both exceptional.
Our 10 month old boy was ill on one of the days and I was concerned to leave him, but when Alice arrived we couldn't have been more reassured.
She looked after our son for 2 days and he had the most fantastic time, trips to the farm etc.
Little Chicks made our holiday, it meant we could ski, guilt free and know that our son was being looked after by the best possible people.
Thank you and would definitely use them again and recommended to anyone and everyone!
George 9 months - Val d'Isere
We had a fantastic time in Val thanks, best ski holiday we've been on by a mile!
I'm so pleased we booked with you guys, it worked great as Shauna had George in a morning then by 1pm my mum and dad had had enough so looked after him in the afternoon so we skied all day (felt a little guilty... only a little!)!
Shauna was excellent - she contacted me beforehand and popped in to introduce herself then always turned up on time, didn't mind if we were a few minutes late and most importantly was great with George who loved her. She took him out and kept him entertained everyday which is no mean task too.
Next time we're in Val I'll be in touch without hesitation.
Lara -Val d'Isere
Alicia - she was great! Lara, who is very selective, took to her straight away & she was happy to go out with her everyday. Alicia was very intuitive, was able to think on her feet & just get on with it. She was great at interacting with Lara & keeping her entertained but was also quick to pick up on when she's tired etc. I'd have no hesitation to recommend both Alicia & your agency to anyone looking for help on their holiday
and many more....
