After School Activities

After school activities are a cornerstone of concerted cultivation. Through these activities, children get the exercise they need and keep themselves physically fit. They encourage teamwork and fair play and teach kids valuable lessons in cooperation and respect for others. Children develop more coordination and will build healthier habits. These activities encourage creativity, help children learn problem-solving skills and stimulate their natural curiosity. Children can explore their individual talents and feel greater confidence as they discover their abilities. After school activities can also provide a healthy method for students dealing with stress from school work and peer pressure. Activities take place in a no-pressure environment and they are fun. In these group settings, children can shed shyness and gain social skills through observation and casual interaction with other children. Students also get a chance to improve their time management skills and to learn how to arrange their time and keep balance among school, homework, family time, friendships and after school activities. Basic organizational skills become good habits as kids organize their supplies and equipment ahead of time in order to be ready for the activity. They also allow older kids to be responsible for their own schedules, as long as they don’t overdo activities and neglect school work and family time.
