Autumn holiday childcare and activities for 5-12 year olds now available

22nd October 2020, 3:29pm | By catherinerussell |

Parents looking for childcare and activities during the Autumn half term for their 5 – 12-year olds can now find a wealth of opportunities on the Wiltshire Council website.

Wiltshire Council has asked local providers to send details of their activities including charges, venues and dates to help parents plan how to keep children busy during the Autumn holiday.

The resource has been developed to support those families with vulnerable children and children of key workers who may need to organise additional childcare during the holiday.

The list of activities is online, and people are encouraged to check in regularly as the information will be constantly updated as new providers finalise details of their activities.

Wiltshire Council has also asked all providers to ensure they have the necessary protocols and checks in place including procedures that enable them to adhere to the latest government guidance on social distancing. Parents are reminded to always thoroughly research any childcare provision themselves before booking places for their children.

Cllr Laura Mayes, Cabinet Member for Children, Education and Skills said: “We know there are many families who will be looking for childcare and activities for their children during the Autumn half term holidays. This is not an exhaustive list, but it does provide a range of opportunities from across Wiltshire which we hope people will find useful.

We are grateful to the providers who have come forward with activities and we hope families will find this extremely useful.”

Families are advised to keep up to date with latest government guidance as they plan their half term holidays.

Organisations who wish to be part of the listing can contact karen.linaker@wiltshire.gov.uk for advice on how to get their activities added.

You can find the school holiday activities listing at https://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/school-holiday-activities-provision
