Most working parents loathe school breaks not because they dislike their children, but because the struggle to find childcare during school breaks is stressful. And often expensive.
I have the good fortune of having a ‘village’ in my life where I can work creatively with family, friends and neighbors to cobble together fun times for my son (& full days of care for me) when he’s off from school. At times I can also take him to work with me and rely on his intense love of
telling people what to do teaching others to keep him entertained at the preschools I work with.
I do like to learn about interesting day and break-long programs that exist so that we have options just in case he wants to do a more structured program on a day off. One program that we are considering for part of an upcoming break is Spoke the Hub Spring Green Multi-arts Day Camp. I love the way they begin the day more than anything!
• 9:30am – Moving Green
Campers begin each day, aiming to grow healthy bodies and minds, through dance, yoga and mindfulness meditation practice
Have you ever signed your child up for a ‘break’ camp? What was it like? Did you find it worth the cost?
Would love to hear your experiences.
