About Me

Bonjour :)
I'm Virginie 37 years old French woman.
I'm the eldest of my family, I have 2 sisters and 2 brothers.
I am a very patient person, organised and punctual.
I speak French, English and Spanish. I'm happy to share my knowledge of it with everyone, especially children (by giving some classes, having fun around a board game or whilst walking through the park or baking ).
I like outdoors , reading, listening to music and love spending time with children.
One of my big passions is to cook and I'm always happy to have fun in the kitchen, baking with children if they want to.
I'm very happy to support children or parents in any interest or activities you love too.
My working life has been spent caring for children and in catering, combining my 2 passions in life.
I have been lucky enough to have worked in French Alps, Corsica, England, Spain and different parts of France.
I have been settled in Scotland now for over 5 years .

Virginie worked with us for 4 years; looking after my 8yr old son & 12 yr old daughter. She was fantastic with them both & they remain friends after Virginie has finished working with us (as both of my children are now at High School). Virginie is very trustworthy, creative & fun. She's can be tough when she needs to be & I always knew my kids where in good safe hands. She cooked with them, took them out for trips & kept them occupied at home with crafts & games. Virginie worked with us 3 days per week, in the morning & evenings after school. I would highly recommend Virginie.

Virginie is a warm, caring and attuned person. After returning to studies after a period of time at home with children I felt nervous about leaving my children with a nanny. However after meeting Virginie and watching her natural ability to engage with and care for my three boisterous children I was completely reassured by her competence. Virginie is enthusiastic and creative person who enjoyed baking, doing crafts and nature walks picking berries, my children really enjoyed their time with her. Virginie was also reliable and children enjoyed learning some french too which was a great bonus! I would highly recommend Virginie:-)

Virgine took care of my 10 year old and 4 year old daughters in very short notice when my previous aupair left. She used to drop my daughters in school after preparing breakfast and pick them up from school in the afternoon. She used to prepare some quick snack / lunch after the school and looked after them while I was at work. As I work in Glasgow, I had to leave at about 6.45 - 7am and Virgine was very punctual and reliable being at home by 6.30 am in the clod winters to wake up the kids and get them ready to school .
She is very hard working and trust worthy nanny. I felt safe leaving my daughter home with Virgine whilst at work.
