Travelling with small children


Travelling with infant children can be the biggest stress for a travelling parent. No one can guarantee there will be no meltdowns, tiredness or frustration and not forgetting the prospect of keeping them entertained, seated and happy for hours can be frightening. Planning is essential when packing your little one’s bag to ensure it’s filled with favourite snacks and activities such as colouring books to keep them occupied.


First suggestion would be to make sure you get to the airport in plenty of time. This means less stress when checking in and getting through security and also provides more time for the child/children to stretch their legs and get some exercise.


Boarding the plane

Again it is important to make sure you have enough time to get to the gate. Many airlines will call parents travelling with small children to board the aircraft first which is helpful and ensures you get enough storage over head.


On the flight

Encouraging your child to drink during take-off and landing tends to help with ear pain.

Colouring books, small board games and some of your child’s favourite snacks are a good way of keeping your child busy. In-flight entertainment is popular which provides a variety of games and TV shows although screen time should be limited.


Hopefully, you’ve made it to your destination stress-free

Happy holidays.


We will always have extremely fond and treasured memories of our girls time at Children’s Oasis. The teachers are so creative and fun, always thinking of new ways to engage the children and the thoughtful and varied outdoor areas were always a favourite of theirs. We loved the intimate, friendly feel and all the little extras which makes it feel that you are part of a community. Thanks for everything, we really couldn’t have asked for a better start and we will miss you all.

From Paul and Katy Rogers (Dad & Mum)

What I love about Children's Oasis is how well looked after my children are and how comfortable they feel. They know the names of most of the staff and will always say 'hi' and often stop for a chat. It's a calm and nurturing environment.

From Zoi (Mum)

We love children’s Oasis Nursery. It has been a part of our lives for over 8 years with both our girls going there. The staff are all amazing and really care for the children.

Que alegría haberlos encontrado! Estamos muy agradecidos de comenzar los años escoltarse de nuestra hija con su apoyo! Desde las maestras, hasta la directora y el ambiente de la escuela tuvimos una experiencia fenomenal y estamos entusiasmados de volver en Septiembre! Muchas gracias Children's Oasis!!!

From Adriana (Mum)

Both my boys were at Children Oasis from the time they were 2 and until they were 4 years old; first attending the Spanish Programme and then, FS1. Both classes were great! The teachers are incredibly professional and caring. The communication with the parents is excellent and reports are detailed. They make learning fun and engaging for the kids who learn through hands-on activities and play. The facilities are beautiful with lots of stimulating and educational books and toys.  I couldn't ask for more during those early years for my children!

From Maria (Mum)
