Keep the kids active during the Spring School Holidays in and around Perth

As parents ourselves we understand the joys (and challenges) of school holidays. For working parents, this can be a real juggling act. Fortunately, there are so many amazing options for School Holiday Care, School Holiday Classes and School Holiday Camps available. For those who have time at home over the holidays, our advice is PLAN, PLAN, PLAN.
