- Provide Childcare during School holidays
- For children aged 4-12
- Full and half day sessions
Do they accept FREE childcare for 2 year olds or 30 hours for 3 and 4 year olds?
No, holiday clubs are generally for school aged children - although if your child's nursery operates during the school holidays you can talk to them about a 'stretched offer'. A stretched offer means taking less hours over term time and 'banking' some to be used over the holidays.
Is there any help towards the cost of Holiday Clubs?
Yes, you can use tax free childcare to pay for holiday clubs - speak to your setting about this. To find out if you are eligible visit the Childcare Choices website
What about those FREE holiday clubs I've heard about, Healthy Holidays?
You may have heard about FREE holiday clubs happening across Barnsley during the main end of term holidays; Easter, Summer, October and Christmas. The Healthy Holidays Programme is available for those who are entitled to means tested free school meals, and those who have a disability. Spaces are limited so you should book as early as possible, click the link below to find out more about Healthy Holidays.
