Qualified or highly experienced Nannies required for the winter season!

Are you a natural with children? Do you have a fun and caring personality? Would you like to spend a winter ski season in the magical French Alps? Working as a nanny and helping families get the most from their holiday is a wonderful experience.

We are looking for nannies to work in the resorts of Val D’isere, Tignes, St Foy, Meribel and Courchavel for the Winter 2017/18 season.Our nannies work directly from a family’s holiday accommodation – which could be a hotel, apartment or chalet – and look after their babies and/or children in an environment they are familiar with.

Care days are planned around children’s individual desires 
and, of course, the weather.
As well as keeping the little ones entertained, you may also need to prepare midday meals from ingredients provided by the parents, or, as a special treat, arrange lunch out. Morning and afternoon snacks will also be provided according to the parents' preferences for their children.

In your free time, being a nanny is a great way to meet new people, make new friends and swap stories and experiences. The resorts in the French Alps offer a great social life and you can enjoy some of the world’s best skiing.




An exciting opportunity to combine your love of working with children with fun time in the snow. Jelly and Ice Cream is the leading nanny agency in the French Alps providing childcare in the form of private nannies and babysitting services day and night. You must be passionate and highly experienced with supporting references for the winter 2017/18 season!

Brief job description

The nanny will work wherever the family is based (hotel/chalet/apartment) and will be responsible for all tasks related to the care of the children, serving as a loving, nurturing and trustworthy companion. Duties include:


  • Having sole/shared responsibility for the child/children during stipulated hours
  • Ensuring their safety and wellbeing at all times
  • Devising a structured day with stimulating activities providing for them cognitively and physically.
  • Creating a stimulating, nurturing, and safe environment for the children
  • Supervising the children’s activities at all times
  • Planning and preparing meals and bottles for, and feeding, the children
  • Dressing the children
  • Placing the children down for naps and bedtime

  • Performing housework related to child care, including washing the children’s clothes if soiled, cleaning up after meals, tidying play areas, and washing bottles
  • Playing with the children, both indoors and outdoors
  • Supervising ski school when required


Being a nanny can involve evening babysitting alongside daytime care. During peak season you’ll generally be working full-time but are guaranteed one day off per week. During the off-peak weeks hours can fluctuate depending on how busy the resort is, meaning there’s more free time to brush up on your skiing. 




  • To work as a Nanny, you must hold relevant qualifications or have at least one year’s experience.
  • You will be expected to have baby experience and be able to work with sole charge of babies and toddlers upwards.
  • Languages are desirable.
