We advise parents to enquire about all aspects of the childcare service at the time of booking, to avoid any misunderstanding about what is and is not provided. Our information sheet entitled 'Skiing with Children' provides a list of equipment that we are able to supply in resort. In addition, it provides advice regarding what to pack in the way of clothing and equipment for infants, toddlers and skiing children - we may be able to save you valuable luggage space!
Babysitting is offered free of charge to children booked into our childcare to cover the chalet staff night off, normally from 19.00h or 19.30h for four hours. Any babysitting over and above the four hours provided on the chalet staff night off is charged at an hourly rate. The service is only available to those who have booked the creche or nanny service: additional children must be paid for locally and this cannot be pre-booked. Similar nanny:child ratios to those above apply to the babysitting. As only a limited number of chalets can be covered, this service is offered on a first come first served basis and should be confirmed in writing at the time of booking.
Children taken sick on holiday cannot be cared for by our nannies. If any child is receiving medication or has health problems we must be advised in writing prior to departure. We reserve the right to cancel a booking, without refund, for the creche or nanny service on these grounds.
For children aged 11 and under high tea is served at around 18.00h by the chalet staff. If you have booked a whole chalet you can all eat together if preferred - please speak to your chalet host on arrival. If a child is not yet on solid food, the parents should provide food for use in the creche. In the chalets, your hosts can assist you with preparation of suitable food.

"Amy was very friendly and Sharne seemed to manage a lovely crèche. Daniel was very happy there and they even managed to get him to have good naps which made a massive difference to his enjoyment of the rest of the holiday. And ours!"
"Lisa and Amy were both brilliant. We couldn't have asked for a better childcare service."
"We thought it was excellent. We used the afternoon childcare for our 4 year old and 3 other children in the group and they all had a fantastic time with Lisa (and sometimes Sam) who was great with them in the lessons and afterwards. Another family in the group who weren't using childcare but were in the chalet at lunchtime when Lisa was giving the kids lunch commented on how good she was and all the children loved her. The nannies in the crèche were also great and the quality and size of the creche exceeded our expectations. This was very good value for money."
"Found the staff very pleasant and helpful. Felt reassured."
"Evie was excellent with the children, very positive, friendly and organised, they loved her! Very professional and qualified with a can do attitude."
"This was a major reason in our decision to use Ski Beat again and was once again exceptional care. All the Nannies who looked after Jessica were highly professional and approachable. Particularly Jake and Fiona."
"We had total peace of mind with your childcare ,which is surprising as it is the first time we have left our 2 children with "strangers". Both children were very relaxed and happy when we collected them so that speaks volumes for us."
"I hope you reward the childcare team well, particularly Jess! What an asset. Also Nicole and Charlie, fantastic, oh and Jenna, all great, thanks very much."
"Absolutely brilliant - made our holiday so much more enjoyable knowing that our son was also having a great time…"
"The team looked after Luca with genuine care and affection, a lovely team."
