Parents are forced to hand over more than £100 per week for holiday childcare during the summer holidays, according to a study.
The Family and Childcare Trust's annual holiday childcare report said working mums and dads were forking out £114.51 on average to keep their child occupied.
The report suggested holiday childcare is becoming increasingly expensive, with families facing differences in cost depending on where they live.
One in six parents admitted to calling in sick last year so they could look after their youngsters during the summer break.
Others had to go so far as to give up their jobs in order to care for their children.
