Childcare Services

Verbier has some fantastic childcare options, although nanny services get very busy so you should aim to book well in advance. The majority of nanny services are mobile (meaning that a nanny comes to your accommodation, a familiar environment for your children), as opposed to involving a crèche environment. Babysitting is also available in the evenings from several firms, although the price per hour is typically a lot more than you might be used to in the UK, at around CHF34 (roughly £20-£25).

Petit Verbier
Petit Verbier provides flexible holiday nannying as well as evening babysitting. You can book a nanny for a half day, a full day, 6 consecutive half days or a full week of 8-hour days, with prices varying accordingly. Bespoke kids parties can also be arranged with Petit Verbier, such as toboganning races, treasure hunts, face painting and party games. Evening babysitting is available to book from 6:00pm. Contact them by email at info@petitverbier.com or call them on 0041 79 577 49 38 with your requirements.

Chalet Services Verbier
Chalet Services Verbier offers a nanny service in your own chalet. Contact them by email at services@chaletservicesverbier.com or call them on 0041 79 519 29 25 with your requirements.

Les Schtroumpfs
Les Schtroumpfs provides a crèche service in Verbier for children aged 3 months to 3 years. One full day from 8:30am-5:30pm, with a meal included, costs 75CHF (around £50). Half a day from 8:30am-1:30pm, with a meal included, costs 60CHF (around £40). Half day without a meal, either from 8:30am-11:30am or from 1:30pm-5:30pm, costs 45CHF (around £30).

TOP TIP – HEALTHCARE IN SWITZERLAND
Switzerland is not in the European Community, and has a healthcare service that is a combination of public, subsidised private and fully private systems. If you are a resident of the UK or another European state, you should obtain a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) which is FREE, and enables you to access the state-provided healthcare in Switzerland at a reduced cost.

Medical emergencies requiring an ambulance

If you need an ambulance, call 144 free of charge from any phone. Be aware that you are likely to be required to pay for all or some of the ambulance service.

TOP TIP – CLAIMING ON YOUR TRAVEL INSURANCE
It is vital that you have health insurance included within your travel insurance, and that your travel insurance covers you for extreme sports if you intend to ski or board (or do anything else considered ‘extreme’ by your insurer). Ambulances, medicines and other treatments in Switzerland will require payment from you, even if they are at reduced costs, so to enable you to claim these expenses back from your insurer, ensure you retain all receipts and documentation concerning your costs and your treatments.
