The majority of students at Staffs are mature (22+) and many of these are parents. Many parents don't have the facility for young to teenage children to be looked after whilst they continue their studies and/ or employment alongside their studies. School holidays don't always align with university breaks, leaving parents frustrated with no option for older child care.
I propose a facility be set up for child care around school & university holidays. I'm unsure as to whether it should be free or at a low cost but a facility none-the-less would be better than nothing to help parents who already feel alienated for not fitting into the 18-21, no child norm.
