Activities on our À La Carte Child Care will vary enormously depending on the age of a particular child. However, children of all ages play outside whenever possible. This could mean anything from gentle strolls in a buggy to snowman competitions, Marmot hunts in the woods and the now famous Ski Famille Winter Olympics.
See our optional À La Carte Child Care options available in the comfort of your own chalet.
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.
Ski School is offered 6 days a week with carefully chosen 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 Ski Famille guests can make up the majority of the class.
Where you have booked our Ski Mountain Marmots morning sessions 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.

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.
This year, we are delighted to once again have a new stock of Drumond Park board games in all of our chalets. As well as new titles including “Stoopido”, “SSHH..Don’t Wake Dad” and “Og on the Bog” we have copies of old favourites including Articulate and Dino Bite.
After an action packed day skiing with children a board game in front of the fire can be a great way to unwind!
