About Alta Children's Center

Located on-site at the world-famous Alta Ski Resort, you can drop off your child at a safe and fun care center and literally step out the door and hit the slopes. The Alta Children’s Center is a full-service child care facility that caters to children from 2 months old to 10 years old. Infants and young children can play, create and learn in the center.

Children ages 4 and up have the option to join Alta’s legendary Alf Engen Ski School and spend the day learning from one of Alta’s friendly instructors. Our center is designed to stimulate curious young minds with areas set up for creative arts, social/emotional learning in the dramatic play area, blocks & physical motor movement area, and a math and science discovery area. We provide 3 nutritious meals throughout the day.



Our mission is to ensure that all children from across the globe feel safe, have fun and create magical vacation memories!
