This class is for 3 & 4 year-olds and is orientated towards fun and play, whilst introducing the youngsters to wearing ski boots and skis. We know how important small classes are for children’s safety, enjoyment and progress when learning, so our ratio for Spritelet classes is 1:6. During Spritelets classes, one of our Snow Rangers stays with the group to help the ski instructor with the youngsters’ non-skiing needs (noses, clothing, cuddles!).
We run most of our Spritelet classes in the afternoons, as it is generally warmer than first thing in the morning. The children are less rushed than after breakfast, and can slowly prepare themselves for their dedicated class on the nursery slopes which will be less crowded. Our morning Snow Club is dedicated to this younger age group of 3-4 year olds as older children will be in the Sprite ski lessons.
Please note that in order to join Spritelets, children must be permanently out of nappies during the daytime and capable of taking themselves to the toilet because there are no slope-side nappy-changing facilities.

To back this up, we offer our simple and effective Childcare Guarantee: if you are dissatisfied with any aspect of our childcare, tell us why and what proportion of the cost you consider to be a fair reimbursement. We will then investigate thoroughly for you, and pay back an amount we agree is reasonable and fair within 28 days of receiving your written request.
This guarantee covers any situation where there has been any failing on the part of our staff or suppliers, but is not applicable where parents simply change their mind about childcare requirements.
IMPORTANT: To avoid ruining your holiday plans, Nursery places must be booked with your initial telephone reservation. Due to our strict ratios we are unable to take bookings after your arrival in resort.
