Professional fun inclusive in-chalet childcare
If you are travelling with young children the quality of the ski childcare you choose can determine whether or not your family skiing holiday is a success.
Looking after children has always been central to our holidays, which is why we don't charge separately for it. Our ski childcare is based in the chalet you stay in, rather than in a centralised ski crèche, and your children will usually have the same carers for the duration of the holiday.
We try to ensure the children spend as much time outside as possible, however when it's too cold, or they are simply too tired from ski school, we provide stimulating indoor activities in the comfort of our chalets.
Our resort team will be working hard throughout your stay to ensure that your children are professionally looked after and entertained, leaving you free to enjoy exploring three of Europe's largest ski areas.
You won't feel guilty about leaving the children, as whatever their age, they'll be having lots of fun. We make sure it's a holiday for them as much as it is for you.
Infants and pre-schoolers
For infants and pre-school aged children, we know things are going to be slightly different as it's unlikely they'll be taking to the slopes and will be spending a lot of their time with our childcarers. Our childcarers are chosen for their love of and experience with children and many of them are qualified nursery nurses. They know how important it is to maintain sleeping and feeding routines - especially for the very young, but also appreciate that it is a holiday too, and make sure they have plenty of stimulating and fun activities to keep them happy and entertained.
We have plenty of baby specific equipment, including baby carriers, all terrain pushchairs, baby sledges, baby monitors and sterilisers as well as providing free nappies and wipes during your stay.
The service is there for you to use as little or as much as you like and is tailored to the needs of different age groups. We will also take children to and from ski school, helping to ensure that your holiday is as hassle free as possible.
