What is In-Chalet Childcare?

Our optional À La Carte Childcare is provided in the comfort of your own chalet 6 days a week by our childcare staff, nannies and Monty the Marmot. Our team create a welcoming ‘home away from home’ atmosphere the whole family will love.

  • Our childcare services take place in the ski chalet you stay in, not a large impersonal crèche.
  • Our childcare options are flexible and designed for skiing families, allowing you to book what most suits you and your children.
  • All 16 of our chalets have their own dedicated playrooms.
  • Our professional carers are a mix of qualified nannies, teachers and nurses supported by experienced assistants. All are recruited by us in the UK.
  • Monty and all of our childcare professionals are enhanced CRB (now DBS) and reference checked and hold a first aid qualification.
  • Ratios follow OFSTED recommendations for day care.

Who is Monty?

Monty is fun and friendly, and he loves nothing more than skiing with his friends!
