Even though it feels like Christmas vacation was just yesterday, it seems like we are already closing in on February Winter Break! While Winter Break is met with lots of “hip-hip-hoorays” from the kids, for parents, especially ones who work during the day, that’s not always the case.

For them, Winter Break signals another time of the year where they need to make sure the kids are well-watched and taken care of while not in their presence. For a lot of families this means it’s time to start enrolling in February Break camps!
