The nanny? Or if your parents agree, you can ship your children off to them and everyone's happy. They can have their own vacation at grandparents' place while you can get them off your hands.
I work from home so I look after my son during the holidays. I generally work early in the mornings and again in the evenings so we can go out on adventures during the day.
My daugher is temporarily in vacation care 2 days a week. Otherwise it's me looking after both kids, same as always. It's harder than usual in some ways because many of the usual activities I take them to shut down over the holidays. On the other hand, sometimes there are special school holiday activities on at the library and other places.
Me. I have a few extras when others need it (the help). I think the stay at home mums should help the working mums. It makes for a good community, and you get to know your kids friends very well. It takes a village and all that...
Family and vacation care
I don't have kids, but my parents found various solutions to suit me depending what age I was. When I was young I had a nanny, then when I got a bit older my mum dropped me off at play scheme on the way to work, and then in my early teens I went to a sports club. After that I was old enough to stay at home by myself.
I'm a teacher so I get time off during holidays, however since my children are not school age I still pay for their child care during my holidays. Some days I'll send them to care in the holidays as I still have planning and perpetration to do which is made difficult with two rug rats under my feet.
being a single mum and having my child in family daycare, I took one week off each holiday to spend time with my son and loved taking him on adventures, indoor playhouses and Serpentine farm which was great for kids.
