Education activities for kids and teens

Fuel your child's curiosity with a fun educational program

Extracurricular activities and programs don’t always have to be sport or arts related. There are a number of education programs that can help round out your child’s learning experience. A wide variety of education programs are available throughout the school year, and into the summer. Weeknights, weekends, during March break and winter break, and summer there are a number of education programs that can spark your child’s imagination and interest. Whether it’s a robotics program, learning a new language, ESL, debate and public speaking, extra tutoring, or preparing for a test or exam, educational programs can help fill out your child’s school education.

Motivation is the key to getting the most out of your child’s education program. Choose the program wisely, and allow your child to help you make the decision. Having friends in the same program is another way to increase motivation. The key is to keep your child excited. If they have fun and stay motivated they will be more successful.

Remember to balance your child’s time with educational extracurricular programs and their educational responsibilities at school so that they don’t become stressed or feel burned out!
