It’s school holidays here at the moment and my son’s in vacation care. It’s very handy for me as a working parent who doesn’t have other options.
It’s very handy that he’s still in primary school and vacation care is an option for him.
However, it’s not going to be too far away until he’s no longer eligible for vacation care because it’s only for primary school aged children.
I’m not worried about after school care because by the time he gets home I won’t be that far away and he’s been doing a bit of that here and there and he and I are fine with it.
But what about school holidays? I don’t want to leave him alone at home for hours on end while I’m at work and because I work I don’t want to rely on other parents who don’t work to shoulder the load. He reckons he’d be okay but I think he’ll get bored.
I see some school holiday activities advertised for high school age children in Adelaide, eg Carclew, but what other options are there? Sports programs maybe?
What do other people do?
I need ideas please and then I can update this post to share with others. UPDATED below with all-day activities for high school kids.
