Day camp is a summer tradition looked forward to by kids and parents alike. The kids get a chance to make new friends and engage in interesting activities, while parents get a few hours to themselves each day. In the past, day camp was much like summer camp—outdoor arts and crafts with no overnight stay. The modern day camp is completely different and appeals to a wide range of interests, from sports to robot building.
If you are planning to go back to work and you have a school age child, you may find yourself feeling anxious about after school care. Finding a place where your child should spend the time between the end of the school day and the end of your work day can be a daunting task.
After School Care Options
Not every after school care situation works for each person. When looking into after school child care, be sure to consider all your options.
These days a lot of kids are more interested in playing inside with games on their computer, console, phone or tablet, rather than playing outside. It can be difficult to compete with the thrill they get from their video games, but being active is very important for your child's health. Sedentary activities can lead to childhood obesity or adult obesity. It's up to you to teach your child the importance of exercise early in their life.
Reading is such an essential part of life. A love for learning and reading can start at a young age. As a parent, you can encourage your child to love reading by the things that you do in your home everyday. Here are a couple things that you can do with your child to help them enjoy reading with you and to have a desire to be an independent reader as well.
If you would prefer not to have your child attend the standard public schools in your area and private schools are too expensive, a child centered charter school could be exactly what you need. Since charter schools typically operate using different accountability standards than standard public schools, but still get public funding, they combine many of the benefits from both educational choices and do so without charging tuition, as private schools must.
