Livi will be joining us for a second winter in a part time position providing evening babysitting and ad-hoc days of childcare. She will primarily be working as a children's ski instructor in St Anton. She has plenty of experience in working with children as both a ski instructor and babysitter. She has also worked at a children's summer school and has volunteered at a school for children with severe learning difficulties.
Aside from skiing she enjoys climbing, reading and travelling.
Both her references show her excellent ability to care for children whilst having fun and engaging them in different ways.
'Livi worked for us for a summer when she looked after both our children when they were aged 12 and 14, so approx. 5 years ago. We were both working so she had responsibility for them during the day and she fed and entertained them. We were totally confident in her ability to manage the situations as they came up and both our children really easily related to her. She is lovely and thoughtful. We were totally confident they were in safe and careful hands. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone. She left us only because the summer period was over and the children went back to school.'
