Our Mission

OUR MISSION IS TO ENSURE THAT ALL CHILDREN FROM ACROSS THE GLOBE FEEL SAFE, HAVE FUN AND CREATE MAGICAL VACATION MEMORIES.

When you hit the slopes, you want to make sure your child has an enjoyable day too. At the Alta Children’s center, you can be sure that your child receives the best care possible – and has a wonderful time to boot! The Alta Children’s Center is a state-licensed child care facility approved to care for 46 children only from ages 6 weeks to 12 years.

We are open Sunday - Saturday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, with extended hours on Friday and Saturday’s for Après Ski Child Care.

Throughout the winter season and we provide a safe and nurturing environment with a variety of age appropriate materials to explore, create and learn with. PS: Reservations are required, because space is subject to availability due to increased demand.
