5 Benefits of After School Enrichment Learning Programs

A child’s education is more than what they receive from their daily classes. After a long day at school, students need a break from the many hours spent on learning. After School Enrichment Programs turn the period after lessons into a fun time that allows students to relax, enjoy themselves, and grow simultaneously. Read on to discover five benefits of after-school programs and why you should consider incorporating them into your child’s life.

Learning in the Morning
  • Creates Confidence

Because after-school programs don’t include exams or homework, they may seem more forgiving to students who have learning challenges or who lack confidence. Being in this relaxed environment with other students who share the same interests creates higher self-esteem since they are all in the same boat learning new things together.
  • Ensures Safety and Supervision

All enrichment activities are monitored and supervised. Also, the teachers and caretakers are people the students see regularly, so they feel safe and secure around those familiar faces. Thus, parents will know exactly where their child is after school and with whom. Additionally, these programs serve a double purpose for working families who need to leave their children at school for some extra time before they pick them up.
  • Makes the Learning Experience Fun

These programs offer classes that cater to students’ passions, whether that’s ballet, art, science, sports, or music. There are many things to do, so students might find new interests as well. And there are no exams! In this laid-back environment, students and their peers spend this time together to divert themselves as they learn.
  • Offers the Chance for Socialization

These programs additionally promote respect, support, cooperation, and teamwork. Students who work together gradually build stronger social skills in a judgment-free environment that doesn’t penalize mistakes and encourages growth. This helps them better interact with their peers.
  • Builds a Sense of Belonging

Students who participate in an after-school program feel more included when they are part of a group. When students conquer a task together, a sense of belonging is built and they feel more connected with their peers and teachers who have encouraged them every step of the way.

The Kindergarten – 8th grade Carbon Valley Academy charter school is founded on the belief that our students, parents and community members deserve a no-cost, state-of-the-art, high quality education that exceeds educational standards, focuses on building students’ character, and challenges students to work at their ability level.

We also believe in high parental involvement within the school setting.

Here are some additional Carbon Valley Academy core beliefs:

  • Carbon Valley Academy provides a classroom and school culture that creates the best learning environment for students through high expectations of student discipline and character.
  • Carbon Valley Academy believes that parents are their children’s first teachers and those parents delegate to us in a cooperative spirit, the responsibility of their child’s education.
  • Carbon Valley Academy believes that students thrive on challenge and learning at their “resistance level” and strives to develop individualized and rigorous learning goals for students in the areas of language arts and mathematics.
