From now on, sweet dreams will be made of long sunny days, fjords, and hiking in Alaska!

May 8, 2023

Spring is here! The snow is melting, the temperature is rising, the days are getting longer and soon time will seem endless. Summer is on its way and thread is ready to help you plan for summer child care.

When planning for summer child care start by considering what will work best for your family and your budget. Find out if your child care program is offering summer programming for your school-age children. Or consider a summer camp. Summer camps are a fun, adventurous way for Alaska’s children to meet new friends and discover new interests like art, sports, outdoor adventure, and science while keeping them intellectually engaged. Summer camps are already open for registration, so it’s not too early for you to start making summer child care plans. Or use a hybrid approach.
