T4 Nanny Childcare

T4’s nannies are the loveliest in the Alps. We know because our families tell us so, and because we hand pick nannies who share our belief that undivided attention, fun and getting involved are the key ingredients to a happy family holiday. Unlike every other nanny service, we hire our nannies for the full season, so we personally know and trust the people who will be looking after your children.  You can meet our nannies on our website – all of whom are DBS checked (previously CRB), first aid trained and come with glowing references! Ski resorts are a magical place for children, and T4 nannies are proud to offer fun, flexible and creative childcare in Val d’Isère, Tignes, Meribel, Courchevel and La Tania.

  • We offfer a reliable and flexible service, carried out in the comfort of your own accommodation in resort.
  • A full day service consists of 8 consecutive hours between 8:30am and 8:00pm for 6 days.
  • You are free to choose when your nanny starts each day.
  • Alternatively you can book mornings or afternoons of 4 hours.
  • We do full days or half days

T4 Nanny History

Started in 2005 in Val d’Isère by Tess who lives here full time with her 2 year old and 6 month old. We quickly and organically grew as our families asked for more nannies and more resorts. Meribel, Courchevel and La Tania were by popular demand and we know from our own experience they are magical places for children and very child friendly.

We understand that we are only as good as our nannies, which is why we have become experts in recruitment and the process is rigorous. T4 Nannies are first aid trained, DBS (previously CRB) checked, have 2 written references with a minimum 1 year’s experience and that is before they are even chosen for interview! This held face to face in London after which if successful all references are checked.

T4 Nanny is NOT an agent which ensures you will never get a temporary nanny who doesn’t know his or her way around resort or worse has not been trained properly which regards to altitude such as dehydration, sun protection, fatigue and much more.

We think being a t4 nanny is the best job in the world!

How it started

Since the age of 14 Laura found the passion to work with children!  Her work experience for school started her career where she was assigned to a local gymnastics club for the week.  This then allowed her to take up this career at an early age and she coached 3-12 year olds gymnastics for 11 years in-between other childcare settings.  Laura came to Val d’Isère in winter 2011 and fell in love with the resort and the rest is history!  She now spends her summers in the Italian Dolomites where she runs an english adventure camp.

After obtaining several qualifications and gaining a lot of experience throughout my teens and twenties, including my level 3 in childcare, I attended university to study Early Years Childhood Studies before doing my fourth summer season this time with a well known company, I then knew I wasn’t returning to the UK.  I quickly caught the seasonaire bug at 26 and met my partner Massimo (Max) in Val D’Isère who is a ski instructor for Oxygene ski school and in the summer he runs his family restaurant.  Little chicks is my passion and what I have always wanted in life! I work for this company 365 days a year and since I opened the company in July 2013 I have never looked back!  Follow us on Facebook ,Twitter & Instagram to find out more about us.
