FAQs

Our child is ill or injured and cannot attend ski school. Can a caregiver watch them in the room or take them around town?2019-09-05T14:42:14+00:00

Yes, absolutely! Ski holidays come with unexpected surprises. If your child does not have any of the following:

  • Fever over 38.3º C (101ºF)
  • Infected eyes or skin
  • Any type of contagious or communicable disease such as flu, measles, mumps, rubella, or chicken pox
  • Unexplained diarrhea or loose stool combined with nausea, vomiting or abdominal cramps
  • An acute cold with fever, runny nose and eyes, a “croupy” cough or congested to the point that he/she has heavy breathing
  • An injury that requires medical attention throughout the day
  • our caregivers would be delighted to make sure your child has just ah fun as the rest of the family! For any injury, a doctor’s note for what is permissible must be provided. With that, we will also take care to make sure they get enough rest and recovery to get back on their feet for the remainder of the holiday.

    As this is a common happening, we do have child R&R packs complete with a soft, cuddly mamayama stuffy, gentle engaging activities, a free hot cocoa ticket for the in-house restaurant located within Aya Niseko for an additional cost. Because being injured or ill doesn’t always have to be a bad experience, its merely the chance for a new unexpected adventure!

    Our accommodation is located on the outskirts of the ski resort, but we still want to be close to our child and check on them during the day. Can your caregiver watch them at a nearby cafe, or lobby area while we ski?2019-09-05T14:37:41+00:00

    The best situation for maximum comfort, safety and enjoyment for your child is for our caregiver to care for your child at your accommodation, and take them outside of the accommodation with your prior approval. However, we realize there are many circumstances that may arise. With that, please contact us in advance and we can recommend the best plan for your situation. In any case, rest assured that our caregivers are professionals in this field, trained in the local area and will have contact with you via our caregiving tracking app.

    I am traveling with friends or have older children who can take care of themselves. However, I have younger children who I want to book a caregiver for. Do I need to pay for the older children who are self-sufficient?2019-09-05T14:43:52+00:00

    Yes, you will need to pay for any child aged 15 and under who will be present in the room during the time the caregiver is booked for service. This includes children aged 0-15 who will come to the room during service hours. 

    We are taking a day trip to a nearby resort. Can we hire a caregiver to accompany our family and watch our child at the resort we will be in for the day? 2019-09-05T14:46:09+00:00

    Yes, of course! If we don’t have a local caregiver for the area you will be travelling to, our caregivers are able to accompany your family to care for your child. Any resort outside of a 5 kilometer radius of Hirafu Seicomart, transportation cost for the caregiver must be provided. Note that some resorts may not have facilities for certain ages or requirements. We are familiar with many resorts in Hokkaido and would be delighted to suggest the best situation for your family. Note that our caregivers are NOT ski instructors and cannot accompany your child skiing. However, many of our caregivers have a background in teaching ski and can work with your child in off-mountain skill if requested in advance and available

    This is the first time for our child to be taken care of by someone other than their primary caregiver or family member. I am worried about how my child will adjust. 2019-09-05T14:49:14+00:00

    A large portion of our clients are first timers away from parents or primary caregivers. We are pros at helping you as well as your child smoothly adjust to new scenery, new food and new caregiver. We have a step-by-step guide to put you at ease for what this transition may look like. With extra care and study about children’s psychology from our team, and with your support, we are confident to help you and your family through an important transition time so that any future transition to school will be a breeze.

    Other family members, caregivers or friends will be present in the room while NKC caregiver is present. Is this ok?2019-09-05T14:52:36+00:00

    Yes, many of our caregivers have experience working together with other caregivers or as a family nanny. Please be aware, it is natural for your child to gravitate towards the family members or caregivers they are familiar with. Please do have a chat with your caregiver in advance about your expectations.

    We aren’t sure what time we will return from our activities. Is it possible to extend an hour with our caregiver? 2019-09-05T14:54:01+00:00
