Before and After School Programs Are Not Daycare
Before and After School Programs for kids are not Daycare. They offer a unique blend of academic, social, and physical activities that help build children’s confidence, self-worth, cooperation, and other important life skills. The WFC program offers many benefits of after-school programs for children kindergarten to 5th grade.
Why Are After School Learning Programs Important?
At home, it’s easy for children to get caught up in the demands of homework, chores, and extracurricular activities. Our Before and After School Programs allow kids to have fun while learning. They help children stay on track with schoolwork, develop social skills and build independence—all while boosting self-esteem!
How Does the Program Benefit the Children? In What Areas of Their Lives?
The program is designed to help children achieve their potential. The following are some of the ways in which it accomplishes this:
- Social and Emotional Learning
- Academic Support
- School Participation
First, it provides them with social and emotional learning skills that help them build positive relationships with themselves and others.
Second, it provides academic support, helping students learn the skills necessary to succeed in school.
Third, it helps children participate more fully in school activities by giving them the tools they need to overcome their anxiety and fear of failure.
