Melisa Naiman


Melisa Naiman is 38 years old from Argentina, She Speaks fluent English and Spanish and has a Higher Education Diploma in Teaching English. Melisa has been working with children since she was very young, firstly as a babysitter around her studies and for the past 10 years she has been working as a primary school teacher teaching English to children 5 – 8 years old.

As well as her experience as a teacher, Melisa is a mother of 2 children who have started school here in France this year. Melisa is comfortable and confident caring for children of all ages from 0 – 12 years. Her experience as a mother has helped her gain knowledge in caring for babies and younger children.

Melisa loves working with children! She is continuously training to make herself a better teacher and thrives on new experiences.  She is excited to be spending more time with little ones, but also excited to be working with children in a more relaxed environment, concentrating on the children having as much fun on their holiday as possible without the restraints of school regulations and curriculum as well as having the chance to get to know the children on a more personal level on a more 1 to 1 basis or with much smaller groups than in a classroom

Melisa loves to be creative, sing, dance and play, the perfect attributes for a great holiday nanny, we are very excited to have her on our Courchevel team, all of her references had nothing but lovely things to say about her including


“Melissa is a person who is all the time looking for new ideas to develop with her students.  She is hard working, sweet and a dedicated person. She can bond quickly with the children using songs…stories…visual aids… every class she has something new to motivate them.

strongly recommend her for a position as a nanny, she has the knowledge and the experience to be perfect for the position”

Feedback 2022/23

“Mel looked after our two girls, ages 5 and 7, and was absolutely incredible.  Our girls felt totally comfortable with her from the outset, as did we.  You could tell she was a parent herself, and was always thinking ahead of the things the girls would need, and that also made our lives easier on our holiday.  She was a really nice, interesting and fun person to be around too.  I would recommend her to anyone, and would certainly request her again if we come back to Courchevel next year”

We have just had a group week ski holiday with Mel and Georgia looking after our 5 children ranging from 10 months to 6yrs! They were absolutely amazing and so caring with our children. The kids all had a brilliant week doing so many activities, the older two were picked up daily from ski school and then had brilliant afternoons of fun. Thank you so much to Mel and Georgia for making our holiday as relaxed and fun as possible for all of us! I would not hesitate to book them again for another week of fun in the snow!

Six Senses – December 2022

“We were impressed by MNS from start to finish. Communication via email from Nicole was excellent throughout. We appreciated being offered a nanny, Mel, with so much experience, especially since our 6 year old has special needs (autism, global developmental delay and emerging verbal). Mel contacted us via email a week or so before the holiday to introduce herself and check our requirements. A particularly helpful aspect of this was that she was able to ensure our son had access to spot-on, engaging toys from the outset as they were delivered to the chalet on the first day. Mel arrived promptly each morning and undertook a wide range of fun activities with our son both inside and outside. She also went beyond the task, for instance offering to clear away breakfast dishes on the chalet day off so we could get out skiing quicker and tidying up. We could happily go out for the day knowing our son was in excellent hands. We fully recommend Mel with no reservations. She is competent, likeable and personalises her approach appropriately to the child in her care”
