For Parents that work it can be a challenge,

1) Finding the right summer programme.

2) Making sure there is a healthy change from their school going routine.

3) Creating a fun memorable summer rest with time to be innovative, communicative, play, be bored and grow!

4) Finding a summer programme that really is about summer for both parents peace of mind and one that offers a child a good, stress free, summer.
