Hi there

Pre school nursery usually runs throughout the year and doesn’t have the breaks that school does, as it’s generally used by parents that work, so closing for weeks on end wouldn’t work.

When a court order specifies a share of school holidays where the child isn’t yet of school age, it’s usually a preemptive condition,which comes into force once the child starts school.

It’s would be up to you to negotiate some extra time if you wanted to take your child on holiday before then...mediation might help, but if you felt particularly strongly and mediation wasn’t successful, you could make an application for a specific issue order to get some arrangements in place.

All the best
