Hi, I’m Lyn the Childcare Manager for Ski Beat.
I have worked within childcare for 8 years which has given me a great experience in many different settings and countries as creche manager and senior nursery manager. This will be my fourth winter season working for Ski Beat and I cannot wait to get back to the snow.
I have a brilliant team of nannies, some new and a few that have returned year after year. Our nannies have a very close relationship with the parents. On arrival they will meet every parent and ensure that every child’s individual needs are catered for. We provide a warm, safe and friendly environment for the children to enjoy their special holiday and we look forward to seeing you soon.
Our childcare, crèche and nanny services are available for children staying in Ski Beat chalets. We offer afternoon childcare and crèches in three of our ski resorts - La Plagne, Les Arcs and La Rosière. Our childcare service enables parents and young children alike to enjoy their family skiing holiday to the full. We employ experienced British nannies to care for your children, leaving you free to ski safe in the knowledge that they are being cared for in the best possible way. We have low nanny to child ratios to ensure that each child has all the attention he or she needs and deserves. The ratios are deliberately tight and strictly adhered to. You can find out more about our Childcare Ratios here. All of our childcare bookings are specifically tailored to your family’s needs so give us a call on 01243 780 405 to book now. Childcare is operated on a first come, first served basis so book early to avoid disappointment.
We offer a 6-day crèche service 08.45-17.00 Sunday to Friday
Our crèches provide clean, safe and stimulating environments for the children using the service. The crèches are organised according to age groups and activities, providing all the facilities required by a modern day nursery. In each of our crèches the Ski Beat nannies will have the equipment set up and ready for the children’s arrival in the morning. There are lots of games, toys and craft materials to stimulate the children.
In addition, there will be time to play outside, subject to weather conditions and parental consent. After lunch there will normally be a quieter period and children needing a sleep will be able to do so in the separate sleeping area.
We offer an afternoon service from the end of ski school until 17.00 Sunday to Friday inclusive. This service is available for children aged 4-7 years inclusive (4-9 years in La Rosière).
Once parents settle their children into ski school, the Ski Beat nanny will be on hand during the course of the lessons, however our nannies will not actually ski with the children.
At the end of the morning lessons she will collect all the children who are using the afternoon care service and accompany them back to a Ski Beat chalet for lunch - this is likely to be whichever chalet the most children are staying in. Our nannies cannot take children back to ski school for afternoon lessons.
After lunch there will be a mixture of indoor and outdoor activities including painting, drawing and, depending on the weather, snowman building, sledging and much more. There will also be a choice of books and games as well as a selection of children’s videos.
The service is based on 6 days cover, includes lunch and will take place in your chalet. The nanny will be responsible solely for those children in your group and the number of children they can look after is in accordance with the published Ski Beat ratios of nanny/children. It is not possible to mix children requiring all day care with those attending morning ski school and afternoon childcare.

"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."
