Flexible childcare options

One of the unique aspects of our family holiday service is our range of childcare services.

Before you travel, your holiday coordinator will take time to talk you through the options that we offer. You will obviously know yourself what you think will suit best and we will make the necessary reservations.

Private nannies

In addition to the Highlife nanny service, we also work with reputable private nanny agencies in each of our resorts. Similar to the Highlife nanny, a private nanny will come to the chalet first thing in the morning and will look after your children in the chalet, playing games and organising meals and snacks throughout the day.


For young children (up to 3 years) there are very good crèches in Morzine and Meribel. We find that these tend to be most suitable for children that are already used to a crèche environment.  They are locally run but have English speaking staff.  Age limits vary so please discuss with your holiday coordinator.


For older children and for those who enjoy a crèche environment, we can organise a range of nursery options across our resorts. Nurseries are great for children who are able to stand on skis but are not quite ready for ski school, as an element of outdoor play in the snow is involved.

“ I would like to particularly compliment the chalet team on how brilliant they were, especially with the kids. Even as early as the first afternoon the kids were committing to saving all their money so that they could go back to Valmont next year (although they did say that given that I had a job they felt that I should contribute more than them!) and I would say that the two of us felt similarly."
