A before and after school program provides your child with more learning opportunities and social interactions with peers in a safe, nurturing environment. Children benefit from additional interactions with peers by working together to accomplish common goals, cooperating, taking turns, and further developing their problem-solving skills. Your child also benefits from interacting with children of other ages, learning from the older students, and modeling appropriate behaviors for the younger ones.
Before and after school programs are designed for school-aged children to benefit from academic and social interactions in the early morning and late afternoon hours, giving parents time to commute to and from work or even stop for a few errands on the way home. This allows parents to know that their children are well taken care of while they maximize their busy day.
A well-structured, organized, and planned before and after school program can offer several benefits to you and your child, including:
Knowing your child is supervised and cared for during the early morning or late afternoon hours provides parents with peace of mind. You can focus on your work knowing that your child isn’t wandering the streets, doing things they shouldn’t be doing at home, or hanging out with the wrong crowd. Instead, they’re in a facility that offers supervision, snacks, and safety.
Children who go home after school to an empty house may resort to sitting in front of the TV or playing video games. While these aren’t troublesome behaviors, these activities may also not be the best option for hours on end at home alone. Children left home after school may also get bored and fall victim to peer pressure to do or try things they wouldn’t normally do if there was an adult around to monitor their activities. Boredom can cause trouble for even the best kids. A before and after school program keeps your child from being bored.
A before or after school program often includes children of varying ages, allowing them the opportunity to bond with children of varying ages. A before and after school program provides children of various ages with a dynamic social environment. In this setting, the older children get to practice mentoring the younger ones, and all children benefit from this practice. This bonding may also provide older students with the experience needed as future babysitters or older siblings.
Most before and after school programs are staffed by educators with some level of experience and training. Children can receive help on their homework from trained professionals to help alleviate the pressure to fit in homework help between dinner and bedtime. It also provides children with extra attention for their schoolwork from someone who isn’t mom or dad. For children with learning difficulties, special needs, or attention issues, this extra help can be very beneficial.
