Childcare and Crèche Frequently Asked Questions
When choosing a family ski holiday there are many factors to consider and sometimes it may seem a little overwhelming. Here are some of your frequently asked questions which we hope to answer.
Please don't hesitate to contact us should you be unable to find the answer to your query in this section.
"Superb crèche where our 2-year-old couldn't wait to go whilst the rest of us could go skiing as a family"
Why is Sainte Foy such a great family ski destination?
It's not only the quiet pistes and safe environment that make Sainte Foy a great choice for families, but also the fact that all our chalets are within easy walking distance of the slopes, ski school and crèche.
The skiing is fantastic too. There's a good range of green and blue runs to learn on, build confidence up and then some fun reds to whizz down. Little ones progress quickly here, with ski classes tending to be smaller than in larger resorts, and with the quieter slopes there is nothing to fear!
Equally this applies to adult beginners too. With the more challenging blacks, famous off-piste itineraries and nearby resorts to explore, Sainte Foy has something to make the whole family smile.
Sainte Foy has a great ski school, and Première Neige can book private tuition or local guides too. (Ski school pick-ups are included as part of our childcare options if required.)
And best of all, Children under 7-years ski for FREE in Sainte Foy!
What type of childcare facilities are there?
Première Service has its own Snow Cub Ski Crèche for younger children. There's also our private nanny service available six days a week. We even run a babysitting service in the evenings, to allow parents time to explore the cosy bars and restaurants of Sainte Foy and the local area.
What age children do you care for?
In the Snow Cub Ski Crèche we care for children from 6 months to 5 years old.
The private nanny service is available for newborns to 12 year olds.
We can care for any age group when providing evening babysitting and maximum numbers are based on the ages of the children per group.
How far is the accommodation from the ski slopes and the crèche?
Première Neige ski chalets and ski apartments are all in close proximity to the crèche and the ski lifts (most are less than 150m), so no catching shuttle buses, just a pleasant stroll to the ski slopes and easy to get back to for lunch or to get those forgotten gloves! (see map)
Is there a ski school in Sainte Foy?
Yes. There is an ESF ski school which has plenty of English-speaking instructors and staff. ESF run a morning ski school for children, catering for beginners to advanced level skiing. There are 2 lovely beginners' ski slopes centrally located, with "magic carpets" to help them up to the top. Both are located within spying distance from the restaurants where parents can sit and watch their child's first ski holiday steps! Snocool and Evo 2 also provide a high level of private and group lessons.
What childcare equipment does Première Neige provide?
We have a selection of cots, highchairs, stair gates and prams for you to use free of charge during your ski holiday as well as baby monitors and sterilisers. Please just let us know in advance so we can have them ready for your arrival. We can also provide a selection of children's toys in your ski chalet (subject to availability). Our FREE DVD library contains many of the latest children's films for guests to enjoy in their chalets. In addition, we can also pre-order nappies, baby wipes, baby formula and jars for you to save on luggage and hassle - so once you have booked your accommodation just email us with your requests.
Where is the crèche located in Sainte Foy Resort?
The crèche is situated just behind our main reception area in the centre of the resort - less than 100m to the slopes and there's no steps to negotiate! (see map)
"The crèche has been great, Beth has really enjoyed herself. Second year and still brilliant. We'd recommend it to anyone. Thank you."
