Key information

Esprit is proud to offer flexible childcare and exclusive ski lessons for as little or as long as you like. From full days starting at 8.30am and finishing at 6pm to half days and fun evening care, you can mix and match to your family’s needs.

In the mornings, our staff take children to their Sprite ski lessons, run by our trusted partner ski schools. The classes are exclusive to Esprit and grouped by ability as well as age, from Sprite Beginners to Improvers, Intermediates and Advanced for any future downhill champions! An Esprit Snow Ranger stays with the beginner classes for extra support.

After lunch, provided by Esprit, 5-12 year olds can attend Esprit Snow Club for six days a week. Run by our enthusiastic Snow Rangers, children have endless fun indoors and outdoors. From arts and crafts, treasure hunts and story telling to Esprit action-songs and games to building igloos, bum boarding and hunting the ranger, they will have the time of their lives.

For those keen intermediate and advanced skiers, from 6 years upwards, there’s a choice to have an extra 2 hours of afternoon skiing in some resorts offering Sprite Xtra classes.

High tea is served by our childcare staff before pick up time at 6pm (or earlier if you choose). While you eat your evening meal, 5-12 year olds can join the Cocoa Club, where our staff supervise them with games, stories, giant junk modelling, quiz nights or a mini-disco. This runs for 6 evenings a week from 7.30-10pm (in most resorts). For some extra fun, 8-12 year olds can join Cocoa Club Plus, where we take children out with their new friends for some après-ski fun, like ten-pin bowling, ice skating or hot chocolate in a café!
