If you’ve got little ones coming with you on your snow holiday then finding a ski resort that can offer quality child care is important! Luckily Nozawa child care has a few options for your kids. There’s day care, private baby sitting and ski lessons.
Yumin Child Care – Day Care Centre
Right on the hill at the Hikage Ski Centre is the Yumin Day Care facilities for 1-6 year olds. This is a Japanese run centre with some English speaking staff and well qualified carers.
You can the Yumin Day Care centre on the second floor of the Hikage Information Centre. Get there by heading up the Yu road from town or by catching the free sled transport from outside the Nagasaka gondola.
It’s worth noting that the centre operates from 9-12 and then 1-4pm so you’ll need to head back to take the kids to lunch. Morning and afternoon snacks are included and there’s a maximum capacity of 20 children so it’s a good idea to book ahead. Nozawa Holidays staff are happy to make enquiries for you. Simply check with staff at your accommodation and we can give the day care centre a call.

For children who are new to the snow or under 5 years old we require you to book private lessons to get them comfortable and enjoying themselves with lots of individual attention.
Kids over 5 may enjoy being in a group lesson and making new friends. Group lessons require three days of full day lessons and we have a maximum of six children in each class.
