Are you on the fence about enrolling your child in an after-school program? Not sure where to start? Kumon of Ponte Vedra has listed 3 main reasons why it’s beneficial to enroll in an after-school program!
1. Develop Social Skills and Build Community: After-school programs can help children to interact with like-minded individuals and develop their social skills further. Exposing children to environments like after-school programs can provide a safe space for them to interact and have fun!
2. Discover New Ways of Learning: Children will have the opportunity to experiment and reach their potential, which can lead to finding what they’re passionate about. With learning comes confidence and that is ultimately what we want to see from them!
3. High School & University Applications: Being a part of an after-school program shows that a child is well-rounded. It shows that they are able to balance activities as well as get good grades. And, if your child has been enrolled in an after-school program for many years, it demonstrates their commitment.
With Kumon being one of the largest after-school programs, we see our students benefit from these points every day!
