    I'm going to work a ski season in a childcare creche in December and just wondered if anyone had been before?

    I want to know what the living space is like? (They said 2 people per room with shared kitchen bathroom and living space but is it cold indoors? Will I need to sleep in my hat gloves and 12 blankets?

    Is there wifi anywhere? (I have data but wifi would be cool to download new music/books etc)

    How much are drinks in a bar in the French alps?

    They said we have a kitchen to cook meals but what shops are there to buy food? I've read that paracetamol is really expensive but what about food?

    Also does anyone know what Christmas Day is like for childcare workers? I'm presuming we won't have as many kids on Christmas Day and we'll have a party or something but is there anything special like a celebration at all?

    Also for new year too? It's my birthday then and I hope there's something nice to separate the day from all other but I have no idea what to expect?

    Thanks if anyone has an feedback

    I just googled it to be honest. Then I get emails from random work away things and one was a ski season which I had already been applying for. I had 3 interviews scheduelled but the first one was the one I really wanted so took it straight away! I’m super excited. You should apply!
