Information - Child Care

One of the difficulties often experienced on chalet ski holidays is finding proper and adequate child care facilities. This is particularly the case for young children who are too young for even the kindergarten ski club. Morzine is a very family friendly town in addition to being a first class ski resort, and offers rather better than average options and facilities for child care.

We have listed a selection of the options, covering carers or nannies who go out to guest chalets, through purpose built nurseries to kindergarten ski club.
