February Vacation Ideas for Families!

February vacation is coming and school vacation time sometimes leaves many a parent wondering what to do with the kids! For some families, this question is partially answered for us. We have to work, so we need to find care for our little ones. If your family falls into this category, The Westboro Learning Center is here for you! We have a full slate of February Vacation Fun Days ready to keep your child(ren) happy, engaged and excited over the February Break! Check out our registration brochure here: https://www.westborolearningcenter.com/february-vacation-fun-days-brochure/

If you are able to take some time off from work to spend with your little ones during the February Break, you may still be wondering how to fill your days. We’re still here to help! First, you can choose to send your little one to our February Vacation Fun days for just 1 or 2 days or just the mornings! But in addition, here are some fun things to do with your family to make some memories together!
• The Acton Children’s Discovery Museum is a great hands-on museum, that is smaller and more manageable than the Boston Children’s Museum! https://www.discoveryacton.org/
• Not that the Boston Children’s Museum isn’t great! It has fabulous hands-on and even full-body climbing exhibits to explore! https://www.bostonchildrensmuseum.org/
• The New England Aquarium in Boston is also a great place to visit with the family! https://www.neaq.org/
• If you don’t want a long car drive, check out the Ecotarium right next door in Worcester! https://ecotarium.org/
• The Northborough Free Library has some fun events scheduled for during the February Break. Check them out here: http://www.eventkeeper.com/mars/xpages/n/nfl/ek.cfm?curkey1=Children%27s%20Programs
