Best to do 'Apres' the slopes...
Daytime care for kids that are not in ski school can be arranged easily in Val d’Isere and there are a number of options when it comes to nanny services.
All these companies are British run with native English speaking private nannies. They will look after your children, take them to and from ski school, take them out on visits and to other activities or engage in arts & crafts, which will reduce the stress and ensure you enjoy your holiday and more importantly (perhaps) the kids enjoy theirs (which means you'll enjoy yours more too!).
Don't forget that kids as young as 3 can learn to ski (don’t expect more than casual sliding and snowplay for short periods at a time at this age) and we can arrange it so that lessons tie in with the nanny service provided.
Either way please remember a few things when it comes to taking kids away on snow holidays. Firstly clothing; plenty of clothing, lots of layers. Secondly, make sure you give your kids lots of wholesome food as they will burn calories quickly and plenty of fluids as the dry air at altitude is very dehydrating. Thirdly, make sure they have suncream and sunglasses as high altitude affects their skin more than ours. Fourthly, send them off for the day with contact telephone numbers in their pocket, just in case and some change (coins preferably) as hot chocolate breaks are frequently taken in ski school and they need breaks as they tire quickly. Finally remember that kids learn to ski and / or snowboard in different ways to adults. Kids just want to have fun on the snow; their technique will improve if they are having fun.
As parents ourselves we know it is unbelievable how much “stuff” small people need! And remembering everything is virtually impossible, as is dragging it all out on holiday. No fear, there are equipment hire services available to help ease the burden.
There are several options for babysitting in the evenings.
Please speak to Clare or Steve for details.
