The Growing Importance of After-School Learning

The period that our children spend at school is the most significant time of their learning journey. However, learning or studying after the school period can be argued to be just as important. This is the time for children to address their learning gaps and nurture themselves as self-directed learners.

Now, parents do not have to limit their options just through programs or tuitions. Letting them express themselves through sports and other activities can be considered after-school learning. Parents and their children reading a book together is another example of after-school learning.

The impact of after-school activity is bigger than you actually think. It is a great avenue for our children to develop personal and social skills. An avenue for them to take a step back from a school environment that can quickly turn monotonous and repetitive. This is why co-curricular activities exist and become a key part of the school besides classes and exams.

Several parents realized the importance. Which led to them looking for school holiday camps, courses, gyms and competitions for their little ones. Learning should never be centered on one channel. Learning is universal and after-school activity is one of these many learning channels.

There are many after-school programs in the market today but why should parents invest in them?

1. Letting our children decompress and learn their subjects in a more laid-back manner that is away from school classes.

2. They will enrich their social skills after meeting new people and spending time away from their usual social cliques at school.

3. Our children will boost their academic skills through personalized learning and consultation.

4. The aimless hours of them playing with the gadgets can turn into productive hours of learning.

5. They are less likely to engage in problematic behavior like bullying, drug abuse, truancy or become crime victims.
