Child Care Facilities: The Benefits to After-School Programs

While the thought of sending your child to a daycare/after-school program maybe not be ideal, studies are showing positive growth and achievement long term.


Raleigh, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/25/2012 -- Is your child enrolled in an after school program? Studies show that only 15% of children attend day-care or a child development program after school despite the growing number of positive relationships between attendance and long term achievement.

The benefits to child care programs are overwhelming. Research shows that children who participate in structured after-school programs improve their academic achievement. It establishes a good routine while providing qualified teachers who can assist children with their homework.

An additional benefit is the peace of a mind it gives parents. Most parents have jobs that keep them at the office from 9AM to 5PM, and with traffic around the RTP it could take up to another hour for them to get home. By the time they walk in the door, their children have been alone for up to 4 hours. An after school provider allows for the children to stay productive, social and not just home watching TV!

Primary Beginnings has 3 different locations throughout Raleigh to make it easier for the working family. They also surround their programs around the Creative Curriculum, designed to provide routine and create experiences. It is important to find the right fit for you and your child.
