Esprit Ski Childcare & Children’s Ski Lessons
We have led the childcare concept for UK families on skiing holidays for the last 34 years and our programme is constantly reviewed and refined, with previous guest feedback always the key element in further enhancing the Esprit experience.
For parents, Esprit Classic Childcare means being able to leave your accommodation after breakfast to head for the first lifts, only needing to return after the last one shuts. We look after your children completely throughout the ski day if you wish.
While the babies and toddlers go to our Nursery, Esprit staff take the older ones to our partner ski-school, collect them, give them lunch, run activities to keep them happy and stimulated and then take them back to their chalets for their high tea, giving you our super-convenient ‘Seamless Service’ throughout the day.
Please call our friendly and helpful team on 01483 791 900 if you need any further guidance.
