Niseko Kid's Club
Niseko Kid's Club is a great indoor option for kids run by a group of professional caregivers. Operating out of AYA Niseko and Hanazono 308, Niseko Kid's Club is aimed at kids from 12 months to 6 years of age. They encourage children to build their confidence and develop new skills with engaging activities and fun snow programs. They ensure proper attention is provided to all with the help of their multilingual staff.
Niseko4Kids was created to expose children to Japanese culture in a fun and engaging environment during their time in Niseko. Classes are designed to begin after most ski school lessons are over and during dinner, when parents may want some alone time. With pick up and drop off services and traditional Japanese meals provided, Niseko4Kids is designed to integrate seamlessly into your holiday.
The program is for children aged 1-12 and takes place in a traditional Japanese school building and all the tutors are Japanese, providing a full immersion experience for the children. They are introduced to simple Japanese words and follow a progression to higher levels over time. Learning is play based, both inside and outside, so kids are certain to have fun and, most importantly, come home ready for bed!
