While they would love to be available at all times, unfortunately not all parents are able to immediately pick up their kids from school due to work or personal commitments. However, an after school club isn’t just a place for your child to wait for you. Allowing your child to attend can also give them a number of additional benefits. If you pick the right group, your child will have some extra time to develop some social and personal skills with other children in a structured environment. At Little Poppets Nursery School we offer an outstanding After School Club for children in East Midlands, so that parents can feel comfortable working in the knowledge that their kids are in safe hands.
An after school group isn’t just a place to keep your child entertained while you’re at work. After school clubs have been proven to provide kids with some great developmental benefits that will assist them both socially and academically. They’ll be able to mix with friends they already have in a new environment, outside of the more heavily structured environment in school. It offers a positive environment for these relationships to flourish, and allows them to burn excess energy off together.
A number of studies have been conducted that show that attending an after school activity can boost academic performance. When a child learns something new outside of school, they can then usually apply that knowledge to their schoolwork in some capacity. Additionally it is a good place for a child to discover any hidden talents or adopt a new hobby that they can take with them. Instead of being glued to a smartphone or computer, they will be offered opportunities to try activities that they perhaps wouldn’t normally participate in.
The Kids Klub After School Club runs from 3:00pm and 6:00pm and throughout that time your child will be given a healthy snack, and will be able to participate in some exciting planned activities. Additionally, we give your child a place to do homework so that their time at home can be enjoyed doing family activities.
Although there are many after school clubs in East Midlands for parents to choose from, at Little Poppets Nursery School we give your kids a great place to hang around, with an array of stimulating activities.
