Designed to entertain, amuse and tire out!
Activities on our family ski holidays will vary enormously depending on the age of a particular child. However, children of all ages play outside whenever possible as part of our inclusive childcare service. This could mean anything from gentle strolls in a buggy to snowman competitions, bear hunts in the woods (don't panic - they won't find a real one!) and the now famous Ski Famille Winter Olympics.
Our childcare team plan activities for each day but always welcome input from children and parents. Understandably the weather may alter plans but you'll get a run down of what actually happened at the end of each day.
When children are inside we have a large range of stimulating games for all ages. Some make use of our supplies of arts and crafts materials, all make full use of imaginations. All of our chalets have a dedicated playroom, so you can be sure that children are in a safe well equipped environment fully suited to their needs.
TVs and DVDs are used sparingly but are available when children need some quiet time or are exhausted after a busy morning on the slopes.
Board games, puzzles, soft toys and hard toys (cars/trains etc) are available in all chalets and we have a vast selection of books, up to date children's DVDs and a wide variety of CDs.
Making learning fun
We carefully choose our Ski School partners in all of our resorts. We know that learning to ski in a safe, understanding and fun environment is a key part of the holiday for most families.
All of the ski schools we work with have instructors with a good quality of spoken English. In many children’s groups (particularly in Les Gets and Reberty 2000) Ski Famille guests can make up the majority of the class.
In Les Gets, La Plagne and Reberty 2000 our childcare staff will take children to and from lessons and liaise with instructors to ensure you get feedback on how your children are progressing.
For information regarding the specific arrangements in our resorts see the Planning your Holiday section of the website or refer to individual resort pages. Alternatively pick up the phone and give us a ring, we’re more than happy to talk you through the different options.
Child-friendly Toys & Kit
The right childcare equipment is key to a good family ski holiday. The following list is an example of the basic childcare equipment provided by Ski Famille:
"The range of activities the children took part in was beyond expectation and our children had the best time ever." (Chats Bleus, Jan 2014)
