When school holidays matter

I know only so many 2+ toddlers who are in nurseries.
I thought nurseries would be different from kindergartens.
In that only in kindergartens would I need to think about school holidays.
But it does seem that nurseries also follow school holidays.

So, if I send my son to a nursery like that, what do I do with him when school holiday starts? Back to Ipoh to be with my parents?
I was quite sure I would do that......until now.

I don't know if I will have the heart too. I will miss boyboy.
Maybe it is time to plan for my second one soon! :)

Anyone know any nursery that doesn't follow school holidays?
Or have school holiday activities with day care?

I think most nurseries provide child care during school holidays. You can make some enquiries.

most nurseries (including daycare) will follow school hols. Some daycare will open during the shorter school hols but for the long ones, they only open for nov but close in dec.

You have to do a lot of research and jalan kaki and interviews tho :( The alternative is to try him 3x a week, the rest of the time with a nanny. Or you could find a way to have flexi time, while working etc.

Most nurseries follow school hol breaks too but then they offer extra "school holiday programs" and charge you extra for it.
