We at Oaktree Childcare Centre have been dedicated to providing quality before and after school programs for many years. The reason we keep at it is that such programs greatly behoove academic and personal growth of attendees.
Benefits of Before School Programs
Programs that provide a safe, friendly, and social learning environment before school provide several key benefits, including:
- They’re a Good Transition from Home to School – After being at home all evening and then sleeping the whole night, the brain may have some trouble suddenly snapping back to the academic grind at the start of the school day. Before school programs provide a gradual transition back to school.
- They Provide a “Brain Warm-up” – Any personal trainer will tell you that before you work out at the gym, you should stretch to warm up your muscles. Take it from our experts, it is the same with school. Good before school programs intellectually and socially stimulate attendees to “warm up” their brains.
- They Ensure Better Attendance – Logically, a child is much less likely to be late for school if he is expected nearby the school much earlier.
Benefits of After School Programs
- They Deter Delinquency – The time directly after school is, by far, when most juvenile crimes and other elicit activities by youths take place. If they are safely socializing at a program, they will stay out of trouble.
- They Enhance Academic Achievement – After school, when their brains are still active and limber, is the best time to pour in more knowledge that will stick. The teaching style at after school programs allows for much more freedom than during school hours, but program attendees do indeed show noticeably increased test scores and more positive aspirations for future learning.
- They Aid Social Skill Development – Like with academic learning, the after school hours are when students are most receptive to learning and retaining valuable social skills with peers and program counselors.
Both before and after school programs can be of great benefit to your child. No matter what school in King City, Maple, Aurora, or Richmond Hill he or she is enrolled at, Oaktree Childcare Centre will assure your child receives nothing but the best care. Our before and after school programs are not just glorified day care programs where you drop your kids off and forget about them. Instead, they are lovingly administrated centres where attendees will reap the many benefits such establishments can provide.
