What is schoolholidays.com.au?

schoolholidays.com.au is a project of two families, who happened to have the same problems with organising their kids' free time after school and during school holidays. Alex and Elena, co-founders of schoolholidays.com.au, a place full of activities for your kids. Meet Alex and Elena, the founders of schoolholidays.com.au When Alex's kids were little, he and his wife (both working parents) felt stressed every time the school holidays were approaching. They tried to make a list of possible activities to entertain their kids, all while juggling work and other commitments. One day while thinking about what to do during the holidays, they had a flash of an idea. How great would it be to have a website where busy parents, just like them, can find all information about kids' activities and events all in one place? Elena's family of three moved to Australia in 2017. Here, Elena and her husband were faced with hours of browsing the internet for things to do with their daughter when she isn't at school. This was especially difficult as they were still new to the area and the country and did not have much knowledge about recreation options. As working parents, they could not afford such a luxury regularly. Being entrepreneurs, they started to think about a solution to this problem. An unexpected turn of fate brought both families together. Since both of them have nurtured the same idea, they decided to team up and create a website that would help parents and their children find activities and events more easily. No more hours spent bored browsing the web. No more hassled planning on Friday night. This is how schoolholidays.com.au was born. We love school holidays! We want your family to enjoy our fun and easy-to-use platform, with lots of things to do for every child and every family.
