Children painting at Beanie Bear Club

Childcare for 3 or 4-year-olds to 8-year-olds

Book your child into Crystal Childcare and you can be confident that they're in the very best of hands.

The Crystal Childcare teams are UK-qualified childcare professionals, first-aid trained and DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) and reference checked. By adhering to UK childcare ratios, our specialist team gives your child the care and attention they need to have a fun-filled time away too.

Our Beanie Bear Club combines ski school and Crystal Childcare

The Crystal Childcare team takes all the hassle out of ski school logistics. They'll make sure your kids are all kitted up in their ski gear, complete ski school drop-offs, and make sure your child is settled in the correct group, with the right instructor. They'll also do ski school pick-ups and escort your children safely back to the club. So you can be where you need to be — in ski school, relaxing or getting the most out of your time on the mountain.

Beanie Bear Club is available for 3-year-olds in Alpe d'Huez, Flaine and La Plagne and 4-year-olds in Claviere, Passo Tonale and La Thuile.

Full-day Beanie Bear Club package from £599

This package includes your child's skis, as well as boots and helmet hire, in the price, so you'll only need to buy a lift pass (if necessary).

Full-day Beanie Bear Club will be offered for 6 full days only.

Half-day Beanie Bear Club package from £399 – New for Winter 2020/21

This package includes your child's skis, boots and helmet hire in the price, so you'll only need to buy a lift pass (if necessary).

Half-day Beanie Bear Club will be offered for 6 days, from 8.30am to 2pm, and includes lunch.

Please note that all childcare is an extra charge and must be pre-booked to guarantee a place. In some instances, childcare does not extend the full length of the ski season. Please contact the sales team for additional information.

What's included?

6 days of:

  • Ski school in the morning.
  • Child equipment hire.
  • Full-day care (8.30am – 5pm) or half-day care (8.30am – 2pm).
  • 2-course hot lunch.
  • Snacks and drinks throughout the day.

Please note that in La Thuile, ski school only runs five mornings a week. And therefore on Wednesdays, we'll run an action-packed day for the kids.

Activities vary daily, often around a theme, and include games, arts & crafts, and book corner.

We're also really keen to take in some fresh mountain air each day, so aim to have an outdoor activity at least once a day – that may be bus bingo, snowman competitions or a treasure hunt.

The full-day Beanie Bear Club package is available in La Plagne, Alpe d'Huez, Flaine, Claviere, Passo Tonale and La Thuile.

The half-day Beanie Bear Club package is available in La Plagne, Alpe d'Huez, Passo Tonale and La Thuile.

Evening Club

Relax and enjoy your evening meal knowing your little ones are being cared for by our staff. Our evening club is available in some resorts and operates up to six evenings per week.

Our evening clubs are themed and may include pizza night, parties and competitions. They run for approximately two hours depending on your resort and are suitable for children aged 4 to 8 years.

Our evening clubs come at an extra cost and can be pre-booked before you travel or, if places are still available, can be booked locally in the resort.
