Key information

We offer flexible childcare to look after your toddler for as little or as long as you like. From full days starting at 8.30am and finishing at 6pm to half days and evening care, you can mix and match to your family’s needs.

In the mornings for five days a week, 3-4 year olds attend their Spritelet ski lessons, run by our partner ski school. This is an introduction to skiing in the fun ski garden, where they tackle the magic carpet, master gentle snow ploughs and slide around fun obstacles. A Snow Ranger is present at all times for added support.

After lunch, our staff take them to our Esprit Snow Club. 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. There is a dedicated Snow Club room or area in each resort.

If included with your accommodation, high tea is a 2-course meal for children served by our childcare staff between 5pm and 6pm. While you eat your dinner, your toddlers can join the Cocoa Club, where our staff supervise them for a chilled evening of activities such as watching a quiet film or stories to help settle them before bed. This runs for 6 evenings a week from 7.30-10pm in our hotels de Champoluc and Ducs de Savoie.
