Esprit Ski Child Care
For parents, Esprit Classic Child Care 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.
Our Child Care programme is now so extensive that at first glance it can appear complicated. To simplify your choice, our table below shows a brief summary of each element that makes up the day and an indication for whom it is appropriate.
Please call our friendly and helpful team on 01483 791900 if you need any further guidance.
