Ellie Simon

Nanny & Director @ My Mountain Nanny

Languages Spoken English & Intermediate French

Childcare Experience 10 Years +

Like so many seasonal workers I arrived in the Alps with the intention of completing just one Winter Season. After just three short days I’d fallen in love with the town, the mountains and my amazing new job as a 'Holiday Nanny'. In the five (almost six!) years since arriving in the valley I have been lucky enough to work with both local families & those on holiday. 

In total, I have over 10 years experience working with children in a variety of roles including  Private Nanny, Teaching Assistant & Summer Camp Activity Leader. I am NCFE level 3 qualified, Trained in the SPELL Autism Framework, DBS Checked & First Aid Trained. 

Having come from an industrious background I had always aspired to operate my own business. In Summer '18 I decided 'to go for it' & Tarentaise Nanny Services was created. I am now looking forward to our new Venture with My mountain nanny.

"K absolutely loved being with you and thinks that you are 'silly, and awesome and kind and gentle and fun!' It was great to meet you and we'll definitely be in touch if we're back next year."

"Very professional, personable & really jumped in with enthusiasm. Ellie has a great relationship with children & L took to her immediately."

Emily Cakebread

Nanny & Director @ My Mountain Nanny

Languages Spoken English & Fluent French

Childcare Experience 7 Years +

From my very first season in the Alps I fell in love with the mountains and with all the various people who like me, are also drawn to living in this beautiful part of the world. Between seasons I have spent time travelling across Europe and visiting some amazing places. 

I did my first season several years ago, and have since made the French Alps my home. On my first season I was an Au Pair to a 2 and 4 year old. I have always loved children and the idea of working in childcare, being an Au Pair was the gateway in making that dream come true. I have been working with children since then as a Private Nanny, a Snow Little Nanny and business manager.


I am thrilled to be channelling my experience as both a manager and as a Nanny into the future of our new company, My Mountain Nanny.
