School Holiday Solutions

The very best childcare begins at home...

More Info


School Holiday Solutions (SHS) was created and is led by Catherine Morin and Jane Linney.

Catherine was born in France and has lived in the UK for the last 27 years. Catherine has personal experience of being an Au Pair and has spent many years working with children and young adults teaching French. Jane is a lawyer and trained risk assessor. Both Catherine and Jane are bilingual in French and English.

As working mothers, Catherine and Jane know at first hand all about the competing demands of pursuing a career, raising children and managing childcare in the long school holidays. Their experiences led to the development of SHS.

The key motivating factor behind SHS is Catherine and Jane’s firm belief that the very best childcare begins at home with you and your family. Put simply, time at home together as a family is precious. However, the pressures on families today both from work and school conspire to reduce the amount of time we spend together as families at home.

For parents, the stress of “sorting out” the school holidays can seem overwhelming – mixing and matching cover with friends, grandparents and holiday courses can be a tricky and expensive business.

For children, there are so many demands on them during term time from school and their various out of school clubs and activities.

It’s not surprising that our children feel “schooled-out” and exhausted by the time the holidays arrive. Having some space in life for supervised downtime based at home to play, relax and mix with friends away from school-like environments is more important now for our children than it ever has been.

This is where SHS fits in to reshape the focus of school holidays by delivering flexible childcare in your own home tailored to the needs of your family. Our handpicked Au Pairs bring energy, imagination and a safe pair of hands to childcare at home, whilst sharing their culture and improving their language skills within the family environment. Just imagine the relief you would feel at having your holiday childcare sorted knowing that your handpicked Au Pair has chosen to spend time with your family and is looking forward to improving their language skills and learning more about our culture.

Catherine and Jane’s combined skills enable SHS to deliver a unique and seamless service from sourcing, profiling and interviewing potential Au Pairs to placement by matching a family’s needs with a suitable Au Pair. Ask either of them to sum up what SHS is all about and both of them will say, it’s not just a business providing safe and cost effective childcare – it’s our mission to improve the quality of family life during the school holidays and to extend a warm welcome to our handpicked Au Pairs.
