Every school holiday you can choose to leave your children at camps if you as a parent are not able to take the weeks off. You can also choose to leave your kids at school where they will have a special program for children whose parents are working. This is well organized here in Sweden compared with other countries. In The Netherlands parents have to deal with 6 weeks of holiday and at that time the parents must arrange something themselves to take care of the children. Normally the mum is working part-time so it is much easier for her to take some days of. Some our lucky and have great grandparents taking care for the kids during school holidays.
