Beanie Bear Club

Children painting at Beanie Bear Club

Childcare for 3 or 4 year olds to 8 year olds

Book your child in to Crystal Childcare and you can be confident that they're in the very best of hands.

The Crystal Childcare teams are UK-qualified childcare professionals, first-aid trained and DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) and reference checked. By adhering to UK childcare ratios, our specialist team gives your child the care and attention they need to have a fun-filled time away too.

Our Beanie Bear Club (formerly Whizzclusive) ski school and Crystal Childcare

The Crystal Childcare team takes all the hassle out of ski school logistics. They'll make sure your kids are all kitted up in their ski gear, complete ski school drop-offs, and make sure your child is settled in the correct group, with the right instructor. They'll also do ski school pick-ups and escort your children safely back to the club. So you can be where you need to be — in ski school, relaxing or getting the most out of your time on the mountain.

Beanie Bear Club is available for 3 year olds in Alpe d'Huez and La Plagne and 4 year olds in Claviere, Les Deux Alpes and Passo Tonale.

Full-day Beanie Bear Club package from €579

The Beanie Bear Club package includes your child's skis, as well as boots and helmet hire, in the price. You will only need to buy a lift pass (if necessary).

Beanie Bear Club will be offered for 6 full days only but you can always take your child out of the club and ski together in the afternoons.

Please note, all childcare is an extra charge and must be pre-booked to guarantee a place. In some instances, childcare does not extend the full length of the ski season. Please contact the sales team for additional information.

What's included?

6 days of:

  • Ski School in the morning.
  • Child equipment hire.
  • Full day care from 8.30am to 5pm.
  • 2-course hot lunch.
  • Snacks and drinks throughout the day.

Please note, in Les Deux Alpes, ski school only runs five mornings a week for those children who have skied before. We will run an action-packed day on the Wednesday for those not attending ski school.

Activities vary daily, often around a theme, and include games, arts & crafts, and book corner.

We're also really keen to take in some fresh mountain air each day, so aim to have an outdoor activity at least once a day – that may be bus bingo, snowman competitions or a treasure hunt.

The Beanie Bear Club package is available in Claviere, La Plagne, Passo Tonale and Alpe d'Huez, all season long. In Les Deux Alpes, this club is only available during selected weeks throughout the season, so please contact the sales team for more information.
