Struggling with summer childcare?

With fewer schools running children’s summer clubs this year, I imagine some of you are currently struggling to find an alternative.

I was too until I happened to be chatting to another Dad in the playground recently. He mentioned that his son was going to specially arranged summer sports sessions at our local leisure centre. The sessions are held throughout the summer and are being run by a company called Little Superstars. I saw this as the perfect opportunity for my youngest son to finally have some tennis lessons, something I’ve been keen for him to do for a while.

It turned out that a few of his friends were intending to do the sessions, so we signed them all up for the same 2 weeks this summer. I’m hoping he’ll have the makings of a Wimbledon champion once the summer’s over.

So if you’re stuck for childcare, why not contact your local sports centre and see what’s on offer.

And remember, if you’re not using your vouchers for summer camps and clubs, you can bank them and use them in the new school year – it’s a great way to get a head start.
