Holidays - childcare and things to do

Holiday childcare playschemes operate each holiday, apart from Christmas.  

Childminders can also provide holiday childcare. Use the directory to find a childminder in your area, or phone the Family Information Service (FIS) for advice, 020 7527 5959, or contact the FIS by email.

All providers welcome children with SEND and are committed to working with parents and other professionals to provide good inclusive practice. Parents and professionals are encouraged to take time to discuss the needs of each child well in advance of attending provision.

Access to Sports runs free activities during holidays; see website for details.

Islington's Adventure Playgrounds are also open during each holiday, including half-term, but are closed from 19 December 2022 until the new year.
