The summer holidays can be a mixed blessing for both children and families. Balancing work and home commitments, keeping the children active and avoiding the boredom can be difficult.
To help ease the stresses of the summer and to ensure you and your family have fun together we have produced a Summer Fun Guide. It covers events and fun activities organised for children, young people and families across the county. You can find all the information you need in one place, making the summer holidays fun for all the family.
Whatever you do this summer be sure to plan ahead. Decide if you will need a few activity days or full time care at a holiday play scheme, out of school club, or childminder. Whatever you are looking for we have been established to help you as a parent or carer make the best use of childcare and children and young people’s services available in your area.
We also offer comprehensive information on all year round care including, childminders, out of school clubs, day nurseries and preschool playgroups. Information is also available on children’s clubs and for the young ones, carer and toddler groups.
If you are using a registered childcare provider you might even be eligible for help with childcare costs through the Working Tax Credit. Depending upon your circumstances you could claim back a percentage of your childcare costs, or you could ask your employer if they are signed up to an Employee Childcare Vouchers Scheme, which again contributes towards the costs of your childcare.
