Our childcare

While taking your children skiing can be hugely rewarding, you might also like to take advantage of our professional private nannies and our exclusive Scott Dunn kids clubs with their flexible childcare options. All parents need some freedom from time to time – and a family ski vacation, with either half day or full day childcare options, is the perfect occasion. Our revered Scott Dunn Explorers kids clubs in Val d’Isère and the Portetta in Courchevel Moriond (1650) are exclusively available to Scott Dunn guests, although places are limited. During school vacations our Pioneers program offers action-packed afternoons, outside of the kids club, for 8+ years in Val d’Isère.

Fun is essential, which is why, in our Explorers kids clubs, we provide an excellent selection of toys, books and more. These are incorporated into an organized, fun-packed week for the children in our care, which includes no less than two creative activities a day, with a balance of indoor and outdoor action. Those based at the Val d’Isère Explorers club also have the option of trying skiing in a fun and friendly way with our Ski Explorers for Adventurers aged 3-4 years.

Our dedicated family team can pre-arrange all baby equipment for our youngest guests, while children taking ski lessons are driven to ski school by our drivers to save their little legs in heavy ski boots. And whether your little ones are with a private nanny for the week or in one of our exclusive children’s clubs for a morning, afternoon or full day, they will enjoy a nutritious lunch, enabling you to stay up the mountain all day if you so choose.
