Before and after-school programs and activities meet a range of needs and are provided in a variety of ways. Families seek after-school activities that can provide structure to their child's after-school hours, homework day, enrichment classes, sports clinics and teams, cultural experiences, and certainly time to build friendships.
Many public and private schools offer before-school, after-school and extended day programs to children enrolled at the school. When you register your child at school, ask about after-school programs at the school or those in the community which are frequented by other families.
