Mansfield, Queensland -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/10/2015 -- With the new school year starting, parents' attention is starting to shift towards a different facet of child care, After School Care Activities.

After school care services provide both and parents many benefits, for parents whose work day extends beyond their child's school hours need a safe and reliable place for their kids to spend time, learn and enjoy themselves. Another benefit these after school care services provide many parent some much needed time alone time. However the benefits kids will get from such services depend on the type of activities offered.
