Child day-care Arc 2000

Arc 2000 (Les Marmottons)

Located at the bottom of the slopes on the first floor above the French Ski School, four state qualified staff look after children from 18 months to 6 years in the 2000 child-care centre.

It is open Sunday to Friday and from 8.45am to 12.15pm and from 1.30pm to 5pm.
We can look after your children from 12.15pm to 1.30pm at a cost of 15 ˆ per hour. Please provide the children’s snacks.
Cuddly toys, tea-sets, cars, building blocks ... all you want for enjoyable indoor play, and, even if they say they don’t want to, we have all that is needed for an afternoon rest.

Outside there is a specially designed area where children can discover the joys of skiing through play. The cold, along with ski suits, can sometimes cause little accidents. Therefore, a temporary return to nappies is recommended. The older children can try out snowshoeing. A snack is provided by the child-care centre.

The BCG vaccination is compulsory and the child’s medical records will be asked for when you enrol. There are 25 places so it is advisable to reserve in advance. Enrolment takes place on Saturdays from 4pm to 7pm.
