Childcare coverage during holiday time is a conundrum many parents face. It can be quite challenging for parents unable to take annual leave from work throughout the school holidays.
However, there are solutions! An increasingly popular option is holiday clubs. These not only keep children of all ages entertained and stimulated but also benefit parents seeking to bridge the gap between term times.
Check out some of the best reasons to consider holiday clubs below, both for children and parents!
Unlike school, holiday clubs don't follow a set curriculum, and focus more on keeping children of all ages active and having fun, all while benefitting the development of a whole range of skills!
Here are just some of the benefits holiday activity clubs provide:
1. New Skills
Holiday clubs provide children with the opportunity to explore new interests and develop new skills, which can help with building confidence and encourage a love of learning!
2. Social Interaction
Whether it's a summer club, Easter club, or any other half-term club, children from multiple schools will come together to enjoy the activities on offer. This gives them the opportunity to interact with children from different backgrounds and cultures, helping to develop social skills and make new friends.
Holiday clubs offer a safe and supportive environment where children can learn to be more independent, which can help to build self-confidence and prepare them for future challenges - such as starting at new schools or meeting new friends.
Not only do holiday clubs hold a whole range of benefits for children - there are also many reasons why they benefit parents.
Holiday clubs are perfect for parents who are busy with work or other commitments, and unable to take time off during school holidays.
2. Peace of Mind
Parents can feel confident that their child is in a safe and secure environment, with trained staff who are committed to providing a positive experience for children of all ages.
Not only do holiday clubs provide children with a huge range of opportunities, but they are also a cost-effective option as they're often charged at a set fee, with optional additional extras.
if you're considering booking your child onto a holiday club, there is a huge range of different themes, types, and lengths to choose from depending on your child's interests, age, and needs.
Where else could you enjoy fun and educational trips to local attractions, meet new friends and explore new skills? Holiday camps can provide children of all ages with a range of benefits!
