A boy playing at a daycare centerFor many working parents, a big concern is who can take care of the children after school. While many parents hope that the school itself has programs to keep the kids busy, many do not. Thus, parents have to find a safe and valuable alternative for their children.

What parents often prefer

The ideal scenario for many is to have a trusted friend or neighbor look after the children. However, many families nowadays do not have this option, especially if this requires looking after the kids for two hours or more on a daily basis. Friends or neighbors have lives of their own, and so it is quite difficult to rely on them for this all the time.

Bad past experiences

Another option is a daycare center which, unfortunately, many parents resist as they themselves might not have had a good experience when they were younger. A decade or so ago, the daycare center was really just a place to drop off the kids and have them watch TV, read moldy books, or hang out in a rickety playground. With such in mind, parents today prefer something else.

An improved system

But what these parents do not realize, as Smart Kids Development Center notes, is that after school care programs have already evolved beyond what the norm was in the past. As school directors began to consider the true needs of working parents, many daycare centers now, especially in Kearns, have designed their programs to suit the growing needs of toddlers and elementary students whose parents work late hours.

Programs to help the child

These centers now offer a mix of academic and artistic programs for the kids. Based on the parents’ and the child’s preferences, there are activities to unlock their abilities. Such lessons may even improve their performance in school as the tasks give them the time practice in a supervised environment.

Not just the IQ

These daycare centers also promote socialization as many educators have realized that a child’s emotional quotient (EQ) is as important as their intelligence quotient (IQ). Moreover, kids are encouraged to engage in physical activities, whether indoors or outdoors, as the daycare directors are well aware of the growing problem of childhood obesity due their obsession with gadgets.

Though the local daycare might not have been the ideal place to entrust one’s kids in the past, times have changed. There are a lot of benefits now for busy families. Parents ought to at least check out a recommended daycare nearby to see if it can meet their children’s needs at a reasonable price.
