Childcare and teen activities

Family summer holidays with an active difference.

At Mark Warner, we create holiday experiences which cover all bases for your children - no matter what they like to do - from 4 months to 17 years old. Our childcare clubs  and programmes for teenagers offer not just an exciting range of sports and activities, but a chance to make new friends, all under the supervision of professionally qualified staff.

Our proven knowledge and expertise in providing family holidays ensures that we have everything covered, so you can book a hassle-free holiday with fantastic childcare included in your stay (just as long as you pre-book before arrival).

All childcare staff create welcoming, friendly, energetic and fun environments to ensure that kids will have the time of their lives while on holiday. We pride ourselves in providing exceptional childcare that you can trust as a parent, and your children will smile about.

All childcare must be pre-booked prior to your holiday. We also offer a supervised evening childcare programme for those already booked into our daytime clubs.

Early Years Leaders

We operate market-leading childcare that is loved by parents and children alike. Our childcare service is delivered by professional and experienced childcare staff, who are all fully qualified with a either a DCE, NNEB, NVQ or equivalent qualification.
All of our staff are also first aid trained and DBS checked, so your children are always in safe hands. Possessing lots of enthusiasm, energy and inspiration, our staff have warm and fun personalities that children love and will connect with.
With our commitment towards providing the highest level of childcare, we try to have each child allocated to the same keyworker for the week as we want to ensure consistency and continuity of care throughout your stay.

Childcare age range on sun holidays

Our superb childcare service is free for children aged between 2 and 17 years old on all of our sun holidays. There is a modest charge for little ones aged from 4 months to 23 months old as our staff/baby ratio is high. We offer different clubs to cater for all age groups with an array of activities and games that are interesting and appealing for each age group. Our summer resorts in Greece and Turkey all offer fantastic family-friendly amenities.

Baby Club

Our nannies adhere to any routine your child requires and will keep a daily diary for your perusal at the end of the day.

Children’s pricing

Children’s mealtimes

We know all about children’s appetites and the need for a healthy balanced diet. With this in mind we ensure appropriate dishes are on offer to suit their taste at every meal. 

Parents’ kitchen

Parents Kitchens are in all resorts other than Aeolian where we have bottle sterilising facilities – a steam sterlisier and washing up liquid is provided in the parents rooms UHT milk is available from the restaurant or childcare if needed. The kitchen facilities are available from 8:30-10.30pm, but there is a night watch in case access is needed outside of these hours.

Children 2 years of age and over will automatically be allocated a bed. If you wish to have a bed side barrier for your child’s bed, please contact our After Sales team.

Children with additional needs

We are happy to assist should your child have any additional needs. We would ask that you telephone our Reservations team prior to booking your holiday to discuss arrangements, including the possibility of one-to-one care should it be required.

Safety in the sun

When holidaying with children in hotter climates we require all children in our clubs to always have plenty of sun lotion applied, drink lots of water and wear a UV rash vest and hat at all times.

Illness

You child must be completely well to be able to attend the childcare clubs. If your child is, or appears to be, in any way unwell on arrival or becomes ill during our care, we will ask you to take over your child’s care to reduce the risk of spreading infection.  After a child has been excluded from our childcare facility, re-admission will be at the sole discretion of the Childcare Manager whose decision is final.

Informal supervision

Please note that we cannot allow informal supervision in our crèches by nannies/carers who are not employed by Mark Warner as this can affect the operation of the Clubs and may lead to problems of accountability and legal responsibility.
