Finding high-quality childcare during school vacations is incredibly stressful for working parents. Stay-at-home parents don’t have to scramble for childcare, but they still struggle to find fun, affordable and educational spring break activities.
I was thrilled to hear about KinderCare’s week long Spring Break Camps. When your local public school is on break, KinderCare’s Spring Break Camp will be in session!
The camp promises to be educational rather than just a babysitting service. Throughout March and April all 1,600 KinderCare facilities nationwide will host the Secret Science of Dirt Spring Camp. Preschool and school aged children will enjoy 5 days of hands-on science and nature activities.
Here are some details about the curriculum:
- PRESCHOOL CURRICULUM: As your child enjoys hands-on science lessons, veggie cooking, and craft-making, watch for a junior botanist to blossom!
- SCHOOL-AGE CURRICULUM: Together with our experienced teachers, your child will plant and tend vegetables, make compost, create garden-related crafts, and (after clean up!) prepare tasty veggie treats.
My 3 year old will be attending camp. We’d been looking for something fun for him to do since his little brother will be arriving any day now! He’s incredibly excited to go to “school” and wants to carry a backpack like a big boy.
Since he’ll be going to preschool in the fall, we view camp as a great way for him to get ready for school. In addition to spring break camps, KinderCare also offers themed summer camps. If he enjoys camp, we’ll probably sign him up for a week of summer camp as well.
