Taking young children on a family skiing holiday can be challenging, but here at Meriski we pride ourselves on our ability to meet every guests needs, including our mini Meriskier’s!
Childcare - Private Nannies
We are delighted to again be partnering with Meribel Nanny Services to provide all of our specialist childcare.
Meribel Nanny Services is managed by owner Nicole Wallbank, who has over 10 years' experience in providing professional childcare services. All of the nannies employed by Meribel Nanny Services are qualified, experienced and DBS checked.
Meribel Nanny Services provide in-chalet Private Nannies, who can take care of your children in the comfort of your chalet. Your nanny will arrive with toy boxes and plenty of arts and crafts supplies to keep your children entertained throughout the week. A full programme of indoor and outdoor activities is designed to keep children happy, enthusiastic and well occupied on family ski holidays.
Childcare is extremely popular and as such gets booked up very quickly. We would strongly recommend that you enquire about childcare availability at the time of booking your chalet, to avoid disappointment. Our sales team can answer any questions you may have on the service and check availability for you. Nicole will then contact you to finalise the booking.
Nicole will visit you in your chalet on your arrival day to talk through how the week will plan out and, if required, discuss any preferences or requests.
Meribel Nanny Service’s nannies are also available to book for babysitting on the chalet staff night off, at an additional cost. If you think you might like to book babysitting, we would again strongly recommend that you enquire about availability at time of booking, to avoid disappointment.

Children's Meals and Equipment in your Chalet
Our chefs all have experience in catering for infants and children. Before your arrival, please let us know your children's likes, dislikes, allergies & any preferences that you may have for your children's meals with your chef.
We encourage an early children’s tea between 5.30pm-6pm, allowing parents to enjoy some “grown up” time during dinner. However, if you have booked exclusive use of a whole chalet, we are happy to cater for family meals, which can be organised with the chef prior to arrival. If a shared chalet is booked, we ask that children up to the age of twelve eat at the earlier children's supper.
To allow for a hassle-free family holiday, we ensure there is an ample supply of everything you’ll need, including children’s beds and cots with linen, high chairs, bibs, emergency nappies, toboggans, baby backpacks, CD player, TV/DVD player, books, music & video library, toys & game box, baby listening devices, sterilisers and children’s crockery & cutlery.
All of our vehicles have children’s car seats and are fitted with seatbelts.
Ski School for Children
We advise that you book ski schools directly so that requirements and abilities can be accurately discussed. However, we are more than happy to give you recommendations so please give us a call to find out more.
