You work hard to give your child every advantage. After-school programs can provide children and their busy parents with a host of benefits found nowhere else. Read on to learn why after-school care may be the right choice for your family.
Extend Your Child's Learning Period
Your child’s curiosity and love of learning doesn’t end at the close of the school day. After-school provides an extended opportunity for your child to develop his or her skills and interests. Many learning centers also provide structured learning programs, tutoring, and homework assistance conducted by trained childcare professionals. Your child may develop improved learning habits from this extra help.
Enable Peer Learning
School is highly structured and can leave little time for casual social interaction. Yet, peer-to-peer learning is important for every child’s development. After-school care will bring your child into contact with other kids of similar ages and social skills. Your child will be able to take his or her time to play, and to choose playmates. So, a quality after-school program can reward your child with better socialization skills and lasting friendships.
Create More Family Time
Late afternoons can be a very hectic time for parents grappling with work, errands, and commutes. After-school care can give you a few more valuable hours to accomplish your goals, and thereby free-up additional evening and weekend time to spend with the family. An after-school program is also a solution to deal with half-days of school or holidays that appear on your child's calendar but not on yours.
Simplify Multiple Agendas
If you have more than one child at home, chances are that you also manage various after-school activities that occur at differing times and days. By enrolling one child in an after-school program you can clear your schedule for other activities.
