Meribel Nanny Services >>
Meribel Nanny Services was set up by Nicole, who has a Level 4 OCN Maternity Practitioners Certificate along with a CACHE level 3 Diploma in Childcare and Education. Nicole has been in the Alps Nannying for 13 winters. Her love for good, professional, and FUN childcare is why she started Meribel Nanny Services in 2014.
Meribel Nanny Services offer reliable and friendly nannies who are all qualified and experienced, DBS checked, and First Aid trained.  At the beginning of the season, they also take part in an extensive “in resort” nanny training week including resort orientation so that they know all the best places to sledge, play and create happy experiences for your child/ren, whether they are 12 weeks or 12 years old.

Merinannies, established in 2003 by an education expert with three decades of experience in education and childcare, has been dedicated to delivering first class childcare services across the French and Austrian Alps.
