You may not be surprised to hear that the Care Village children look forward to school holidays. There are four of them over the course of the school year – ten days in March, three weeks in June, ten days in October, and six weeks in December.
We have tried to offer opportunities for the children to enjoy their time off from school. Possibly the most important reason is to keep the children safe. It is important for the children to look forward to spending their school holidays at the Care Village as opposed to returning to their roots where they may not have the opportunity to be kept safe and healthy. Secondly, don’t we all look forward to our vacations? Lifting the spirits of these children goes a long way when they return to school.
