How does my child get to their morning lessons? When do I pick up my children?
It is the parents responsibility to get their children to the Ski School for 9/9.15am each morning. (Timings may vary in resort, but our team will inform you of this on your first night)

In the afternoons, your children will be dropped back off to their chalets for 4.30pm, so please make sure you are back to meet them.
What if I want to ski with my children on some days?
If you wish to ski with your children on just a couple of afternoons, and not the full week, then you must book them into Full Childcare.
You are then more than welcome to come and collect them from their lunch and take them out for the rest of the afternoon, either skiing or to one of the non ski related activities in the surrounding area –Ardent Reberty Les Coches (Providing that you have prearranged this with the childcare team for your resort)
We have to have the children booked into full childcare to be able to do this as we cannot guarantee that we will have space in the childcare clubs should you wish to upgrade during the week to include afternoon care.
What are my children doing in their afternoon activities?
On 3 days your children will be honing their skills on the slopes with a ski instructor. This is not a formal lesson, but allows your children to practice what they have learnt in the mornings in a more relaxed environment. Dependent on ski ability, children will either practice on some of the smaller slopes, or try some more skilled skiing like bunny hops and skiing through the powdery snow. This is your child’s time to do more of the type of skiing you are off doing during the day – exploring the area and improving their skiing through doing, rather than running drills.
On the 3 afternoons they’re not skiing, our childcare team take them out on some great fun filled activities (weather and resort dependent). These include, but are not limited to:
- Ice Skating
- Treasure Hunts
- Fun Parks
- Winter Olympics
- Snowman and Igloo Building
- Hot Chocolate trips
We also have an indoor activity centre or “Den” for each childcare group, where any indoor activities can take place. This is also where their lunches will take place, so if you are collecting your child after lunch please meet them at the related chalet
How will I know if my child’s ski ability is progressing?
On 3 evenings before their ski test on the Friday, a member of our team will give feedback to the individual family on how your children are progressing in ski school, and about any issues that might have been encountered during the day. Our Ski School Helpers will also hand out badges and certificates on the Saturday after they have taken their ski school test, and this is great fun for all the family.
My children are all different ages, will they see each other during the day ?
Our childcare clubs are grouped by age to ensure each child has a schedule tailored to their energy levels and ability, so it’s unlikely the different clubs will spend much time together during the day as they will be out and about doing different activities. Our childcare staff are excellent at helping all children to build friendships with other children in their club. Morning ski lessons with ESF are grouped by ski ability so if your children are the same ski level, they may be in the same group lesson. However, this isn’t guaranteed as in popular weeks ESF may also group the same level children based on age/strength and one child may progress at a different speed to another. In Les Coches there is one childcare den which is shared between the 3 childcare clubs. So on some afternoon activities they may overlap, but as the clubs offer different activities dependent on age (Adventurers skiing in the afternoon on 3 days) there is no guarantee that they will be together.
Can I change which level of childcare I have chosen whilst in resort?
Whilst we would love to say yes, we may sometimes be limited by operational constraints. Our childcare places can fill up very quickly, and there might not be space for your child should you wish to upgrade in resort. Should you think that you might want to have a few afternoons to yourselves, you must organise full childcare for the week so that you have the choice to take them out as you please and you have the security of knowing they have a place in childcare guaranteed every afternoon.
