Creating a Sense of Belonging
Afterschool programming gives your child the opportunity to meet new friends or connect with familiar faces outside the classroom.
Helping With School Work
Afterschool programs offer homework help provided by qualified teachers who can help your child complete their assignments.
Making Learning Fun
Many afterschool programs offer classes on specific interests like computers and other technology, art or science. These programs can help your child explore their interests and find new ones.
Providing a Safe Space
Afterschool programming provides a safe, structured and well-supervised environment for children.
Afterschool programs can improve the confidence of children because the environment may feel more forgiving than a traditional school setting.
