Holiday Childcare Options for Working Parents

The school holidays are often longer than the allowance received from most places of work, meaning many of you need to find an alternative childcare solution. Childcare Professionals are extremely busy during these periods and we recommend that you don't leave it to the last minute.

For working parents there a number of affordable school holiday childcare options if its not possible to arrange free care with family and friends.  You can employ a Holiday Nanny, Au pair or find a Holiday Childminder. You can find local childcare by entering your postcode and searching over 215,000 carers on Childcare Professionals list their availablity and you can easily find one to suit.

There are a number of Ofsted registered activity day camps that will entertain the kids with flexible hours, including Barracudas, SuperCamps as well as residential camps that can provide activities including football, horse riding, languages and music.

We love to hear activity ideas for the school holidays and welcome you to share them with us on our Facebook page.

If it is the first time that you are looking for care we recommend that you read our guide for parents.
