The six week summer holidays will soon be upon us. But while the children are looking forward to a break from school, sunshine and freedom, for many working parents the reality of organising childcare can become a major headache! 

You may be fortunate enough to have grandparents that step in to help or maybe you alternate your weeks off during the holidays, one week mum, one week dad, one week together…. Either way, it’s a juggling act and most of us who work will usually have to book our children into some form of childcare when our annual leave’s used up and family and friends unable to commit! 

Poole Family Information Directory is the place to go to sort out your childcare holiday headache. There are heaps of exciting play schemes, holiday clubs and workshops taking place, some running for a day, some for weeks and more. All tastes and interests are catered for: drama, dance, sports, art... and for all age ranges and abilities. Many childminders also take school age children over the summer holidays and if you get really stuck please contact the FIS for childcare brokerage and emergency provision. 

Why not visit the FID now and get your holiday childcare all planned so you and your family can relax and enjoy the summer! Happy Holidays!
