Summer Alps Childcare

Now you can make the most of our fabulous childcare in the summer months too! We can provide a childcare service in Morzine, Les Gets & Alpe d'Huez so you can enjoy the mountains with the luxury and added convenience of a spare pair of hands. Your private nanny will care for your children in the comfort and familiar surroundings of your own chalet, meaning toys, comforters and spare clothes are always in reaching distance. Children will enjoy a variety of outdoor activities including swimming, bubble trips, picnics and if brave enough maybe even a trip down the luge!

With the sun shining high in the sky, the Alps are without doubt, one of the most beautiful areas in the world. We can guarantee you will love the Alps in the summer just as much as when you visit the snow-capped peaks in the winter. Summer in the Alps is warm, spectacular, outdoor, and fun. The mountains provide the most remarkable adventure park for adults and kids alike, whether you’re looking for total relaxation in the fresh air or a little bit of adventure.

Please note: we also work closely with childcare partners and subject to availability may occasionally provide childcare through a preferred partner. 

Welcome Meeting

We know how daunting it can be meeting someone new, which is why on the first evening of your holiday, your nanny will come to your chalet to meet you and get to know the children. This is a good opportunity to chat through the week ahead and discuss your children’s routine.

What The Children Can Expect

Any good workman has a big box of tools, and our private nannies are no exception. Your nanny will bring a box of goodies to the chalet so you don’t have to worry about bringing any more than a few essential favourites. There will be games, books, toys and art materials, and the youngsters can look forward to creative activities, and messy play too.

Your private nanny will care for your children in the comfort and familiar surroundings of your own chalet, meaning toys, comforters and spare clothes are always close at hand. Children can also enjoy a variety of outdoor activities including swimming, ice-skating, bubble trips, picnics, even a trip down the luge! Additionally, they can accompany you on an outing or daytrip as an extra pair of hands at the pool/lake or eyes in the water.

A midmorning or afternoon snack is included, but please note that lunch is only provided with full day/s only. Of course the nanny will be happy to prepare and serve any bottles, purees, snacks or lunches you wish to provide.

    Our nannies

     

    We understand that happy children make for relaxed parents, and that quality childcare is an essential ingredient to every family holiday. Therefore, we have gone to great lengths to ensure that you will feel absolutely confident in your nanny’s ability to care for your children. We take on nannies with NNEB or equivalent level 3 qualifications, who pass out own rigorous screening and DBS checks. All nannies undergo training including paediatric first aid, food hygiene and pool safety courses. Most of our nannies are selected following a successful winter season and excellent guest feedback from our sister programme VIP SKI.

    Here’s what our winter guests think about our childcare service:

    ‘’Emma, our Nanny for our 3 year old Herbie, was kind, caring and fun. Herbie was smitten and loved every moment.‘’

    ‘’This was our first ski holiday with our daughter who is only 19 months old. We chose the nanny service offered by VIP and couldn't have been happier with the decision to do so! Gemma looked after our daughter and she was fantastic!'’

    ‘’Robyn was lovely and managed to win our son over- not an easy task! She made us feel very confident to leave him with her knowing he would be in very safe hands! He had a better time than us I think!’’

    ‘’Our nannies were first rate and really seemed to care about their charges. The children will miss them and the diaries are an excellent souvenir.’’

    ‘’Polly was absolutely amazing with the children - they had a ball! We think our children even preferred hanging out with Polly more than the skiing part of the holiday!‘’
