Sainte Foy Childcare and Kids Club Facilities

Venture Ski has an excellent reputation for family-friendly holidays. We work closely with Tarentaise Nanny Services who run a kids club next to our chalets for children from twelve weeks to 12 years old.

Your Childcare services are delivered by their team of qualified professionals.  Guests have the option to choose half or full day childcare programs. Babysitting services are also available too.

The club has always been a great feature of Venture Ski holidays. It is spacious, warm, secure and stocked with arts and crafts, toys, books as well as sleeping facilities for the youngest members.

Childcare Services Team

Tarentaise Nanny Services recruit the most dedicated team of child carers, teachers and nannies for their childcare services team. They will ensure that your children, toddlers and babies have a great holiday and take away lasting positive memories of their special time in the wonderful family resort of Sainte Foy.

Sainte Foy is a great family-friendly ski resort Tarentaise Nanny Services has a tremendous reputation.

Childcare Service

The childcare services team take care of children from 9:00am to 5:00pm including lunch. If they are in ski school they will be dropped off and picked up, and for the younger ones particularly on the first day or two, the nannies will endeavour to monitor their progress in ski school to ensure they are settling in.

Venture Ski, guests can receive the following:

  • Full day childcare per child for a six-day week
  • Half day childcare with or without lunch
  • Ad-hoc days

The Children

The Tarentaise Nanny Services childcare team, have a special programme of activities for all young ages. We group infants and children into similar ages, but always remaining flexible for families and children who would rather play together regardless of their age.

As a rough guide, we view under-2 year-old’s as infants, 3-4 year-old’s (usually pre-ski school age) are our “cadets”, 5-7 year-old’s, the “juniors” who you may have in ski school or with a private ski instructor for a couple of hours each day; and then the “tweens” – 8 years-old and over – we know they are too cool for a crèche, but there are some great activities (including occasional hosted trips round the ski slopes) for competent youngsters with parental permission.

Childcare Standards

Tarentaise Nanny Services seek to deliver exceptional childcare services to your children whilst you are out skiing and enjoying the mountain.  The childcare staff ratios are in line with the UK statutory limits. The minimum staffing ratios are:

  • Infants: One member of staff for every two children under 2 years.
  • Toddlers: One member of staff for every four children aged 2 – 4 years.
  • Juniors: One member of staff for every five children aged 5 – 7 years.
  • Pre-Teens: One member of staff for every eight children aged over 8 years.

Please note that these are minimums, and it is rare that we have more than 10 children during quiet periods.

Ski Schools

Sainte Foy offers a great selection of ski schools for your children that want to get out on the slopes and they offer great adult lessons too.
