Childcare in Meribel falls under three categories: In-house, external nanny or creche facilities.

Exciting obstacles, toys and games make their days exciting and interesting, and the level of care is excellent.

Aside from the childcare, Meribel’s ski schools also welcome children of all ages and standards for lessons and, unsurprisingly for a resort of this calibre, the level of tuition is outstanding.
