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”

Mel is just brilliant, this is the second year in a row we have booked her. Our girls love her and she has already thought of everything you would as a parent for your child’s needs. Mel took them all over Courchevel, taking them bowling, swimming, to a local carnival, and crafting. Our kids were spoilt for the week and had a fab time. Mel is completely trustworthy, flexible with requirements and reliable and gave us some great time as a couple as well as a family! Thank you

Mel and Kelli looked after our family over a weeks holiday. They supported us with 5 children 3 and under, which isn’t an easy undertaking, although they did make it completely seamless!! They were both so kind and happy to go above and beyond for us. It was my 10 month old daughter’s first time being left without a family member and she was completely comfortable in Mel and Kelli’s company. For once we actually got to relax on holiday – we definitely recommend for anyone who is considering booking.

Mel is such a dream! Thank you

McInerney family – La Praz – January 2024

Our recent ski trip started with disaster with chickenpox appearing on a number of the babies. However, Kellie and Mel took it in their stride, minimising our stress wherever they could. They had their hands full with 5 children 3 and under with varies activities to deal with (ski lesson pick up, babies napping and a toddler to entertain) with the constraints of managing illness at the same time. They exceeded my expectations and allowed me some time to ski which I thought would be impossible. I am extremely grateful for their experience, care and kindness towards our whole family. We used the service last year, this year and will certainly be back next year! Thank you thank you thank you x

Mel was an absolutely brilliant nanny. This was the first time we had left our 8 month yr old son with anyone other than grandparents and Mel made us feel very confident from the outset. Our son really enjoyed spending time with her and we certainly wouldn’t hesitate to use her again if we were back in Courcheval

Our nanny, Mel, was brilliant with our little boy. She has an outgoing, sunny personality and lots of energy. She took our son on daily trips out tailored to his interests. She was unfazed by his special needs and quirks and made every day fun for him. We are already booked in again with her!

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!

“We thought both Georgia and Melisa were great and would highly reccommend them”

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”
