Parents, we know the school year can be a complicated time. Between planning pick-ups and drop-offs, remembering what days and times band practices and study groups fall on, helping your students with homework and making sure they’re at their best, it’s tough to cover every detail. We’re here to help take one thing off your plate and offer you four suggestions for after-school activities.
After School Activities in Prosper
· YMCA through Prosper elementary schools
One of the many perks of being enrolled in the Prosper ISD is that all four elementary schools offer after-school care through the YMCA. This is a great opportunity for your kids to socialize and interact with each other even more and bond outside of the classroom. Any parent interested can enroll their child through the Prosper ISD website.
· Athletic programs
It’s a well-known fact that sports and working together on a team help children learn great communication skills and show them the benefits of fitness. It also keeps them entertained and helps them set goals. That’s why we love the youth athletic programs in Prosper – they nurture our children and teach them valuable life lessons.
One of our favorite athletic programs is The Initiative in Prosper. They are dedicated to helping children develop their skills and also helping them grow as people.
· Playing board games
It might sound simple, but board games are actually great ways to build a child’s critical thinking skills. They have to make decisions based on the information in the game and then evaluate what move to make next. Plus, it’s an inexpensive game that can be played in the comfort of your own home.
I know, it sounds too simple and doesn’t have the same excitement of the other suggestions. But taking a walk has huge benefits for children.
o Taking walks gets kids out of the house.
o Taking walks creates good memories and experiences.
o It gives parents a chance to talk to children about their day.
o It’s light exercise, so everyone can join in.
