We could talk forever about the benefits of getting children involved in after-school programs, but we’re confident our top 3 reasons are enough to persuade you to sign your child up for our FREE programs:
1. Socialisation: after-school activities help children develop important social skills, where they use different strategies to interact with and form bonds with children they don’t know. This builds confidence in children to manage unfamiliar situations and navigate social settings, as well as to solve problems with others through negotiation and collaboration.
2. Creativity: our programs encourage children to explore and create new frontiers through a range of mediums, such as found or recycled materials, new technologies such as AR and VR, or simply their own voices and bodies in our active programs. Our try, test, learn approach emboldens children to take risks in their creative practice and to find their creative spirit.
3. Health and Wellbeing: healthy kids are happy kids. After-school programs keep children’s minds and bodies active, which in turn lowers the risk of illness developing. Our programs promote healthy living in a safe and inclusive environment.
Warning! Bonus Material!
Your child’s participation in our programs may result in a deep appreciation and understanding of the role libraries play in people’s lives, and how they impact society for good. Teaching children how to use library spaces is the secret ingredient to keep them coming back as adults.
