Before and After School
With now well over 50 percent of American households having two working parents, child care has become an industry all its own. However, not all child care is created equal, and it’s important when searching for care of your children to do your due diligence. Premier Christian Academy offers child care for infants and toddlers, as well as an after school and before school care program for older kids, from kindergarten through the 8th grade. We believe in providing a safe, nurturing environment for children of all ages, and with so many parents working, we aim to help fill the void in the hours before and after school with homework help, activities, and down time for kids before they go home to spend time with their parents. Below, we’ll examine just a few of the many benefits of before and after school care. Contact us today to get started!
TOP BENEFITS OF BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL CARE
- Provides help with homework. Many kids can get stressed out doing homework at school, but they don’t want to do it at home. Before and after school care provides the perfect opportunity for kids to do their homework right after school and get help in a low-key environment.
- Provides numerous activities to do. Premier Christian Academy offers a variety of activities in our before and after school day care. Children can choose from playing outside on the playground or engaging in a game of tag with friends to staying indoors and playing basketball in the gym or doing craft activities. Rest assured there is no screen time. Furthermore, we provide a variety of healthy snacks for your children to tide them over until dinner time.
- Built-in relaxation time. Children need down time just like adults after a long day of learning. Before and after school care at Premier Christian Academy provides ample opportunity for kids to read books or just get in a little shut-eye.
The first years of elementary school can be challenging for young children. At Premier Christian Academy in Northlake and Murphy, we understand the struggles young children face in these years. Children progress from attending child care to formal elementary schooling where the environment is not as nurturing. Social skills become extremely important as well as emotional intelligence. We understand these challenges and therefore intentionally create an environment to help our school age children build upon social skills and skills in confidence, while still allowing your child to have fun and learn.
Our teachers assist children in homework so parents can spend quality time with their children. Our teachers also understand that children like to share their day and what they learned while at school, so our teachers engage with the children to help strengthen what each child has learned throughout the day. During these years building friendships is important to school age children, so teachers encourage team building activities to encourage the formation of additional friendships as well.
At Premier Christian Academy we know children, and we understand that children need very different things at every new stage of their lives. We are passionate about children and the total wellbeing of each child in our care.
