Terms & Conditions for Childcare Reservations with Première Service SARL
In its role as booking agent, Première Neige book childcare services through it's sister company Première Service SARL, whom are the sole provider of all childcare services.
The total cost of your childcare is required to reserve your childcare place. This payment is the only way of securing your booking. Due to the high level of demand for childcare bookings, we cannot guarantee any bookings or hold any creche places until full payment has been received.
Any further childcare requirements such as babysitting or ad hoc days are payable in resort, with all payments to be settled prior to your departure. These bookings are subject to availability; please speak to the Reservations Team for further information.
Suitability of Childcare
Via Première Service SARL, Premiere Neige provides a selection of childcare options in order to ensure that childcare is accessible to as wide a range of children as possible. In order to ensure that your child receives the correct level of care, you will be asked for their age at the time of booking. Please note that it is the responsibility of the parents to ensure that this information is accurate.
It is the responsibility of the parents to inform the Reservations Team at the time of booking if their child requires one to one or specific care. In particular it is vital that you inform us in advance if your child has any sort of physical or mental disability; any variety of chronic medical condition or illness; any sort of social or behavioural problems; or any other condition which may affect the childcare ratios within the creche. Premie?re Service believe strongly in equal opportunities and this information is used solely for judging the suitability of your booking, and for ensuring that any necessary preparations are made for your child’s arrival in resort.
Should we not receive notification in advance, and the Creche Manager deems that the type of childcare booked for your child is unsuitable once you arrive in resort, you will be asked to make alternative arrangements at your own expense. If you are unsure as to which childcare option would best suit your child, please speak to the Reservations Team or Creche Manager for further advice.
If through circumstances beyond our control, Premiere Neige is forced to cancel your booking, you may elect for a full refund; accept childcare of an equivalent or superior standard from us if such childcare is available; or accept childcare of a lower standard to that booked together with a refund of the difference in price if such childcare is available.
Circumstances beyond Premiere Neige’s control do not include events amounting to “force majeure”. Force majeure means unusual and unforeseen events such as war, threat of war, riot, terrorism, natural disasters, fire, technical problems or accidents with airports, ports or transport, inclement weather or governmental action. Premiere Neige shall have no responsibility or legal liability to compensate the client for loss of opportunity to take up the childcare in this situation.
A cancellation by a client will only be confirmed once it has been received in writing by Premiere Neige. Clients are advised to send cancellations by recorded delivery to Premiere Neige Ltd, Chalet Chardon, Les Fermes de Sainte Foy, Sainte Foy, 73640, France.
In the case of a cancellation by the client, Premiere Neige shall be entitled to retain as much of the payment as is necessary to cover reasonable costs and losses by withdrawal. Premie?re Neige takes all reasonable steps to keep these costs to a minimum, and determines them to be: more than 6 weeks before arrival: 50% of total childcare cost; more than 3 weeks before arrival 85% of the childcare cost.
If cancellation is made after full payment has been made and more than 6 weeks before arrival, a refund of 50% will be made; if it is more than 3 weeks before arrival, a refund of 15% will be made. No refunds can be made for any cancellations made and received less than 3 weeks (21 days) prior to arrival. We recommend that you ensure that your insurance policy covers you against irrecoverable cancellation costs.
If your childcare requirements change we will endeavour to make the requested changes to your booking. There will be a 10% charge on your total childcare cost for us to rearrange your childcare at any time. If however we are unable to provide you with the requested change to your childcare, the cancellation charges above apply.
All childcare hours are as per advertised on our website. If you choose to start your day late or finish your day early, the childcare costs remains the same and no refunds will be issued for any unused childcare.
The morning session of creche finishes at 12.00pm and the afternoon session finishes at 4.30pm. We ask all parents to adhere strictly to these times. Should you be, for any reason, unable to collect your child by the allotted time please let the Creche Manager know at the earliest possible opportunity.
If you are unable to collect your child by the time above, Premiere Neige will do their best to find a babysitter, at your cost, to look after the child until such time as you are able to collect them. Please note that Premiere Neige cannot guarantee that this will be possible and are unable to take responsibility for any child not collected by the allocated times.
