Educational Benefits of Summer Learning | Countryside YMCA

While your kids are on summer break, their brains are often given a three-month break. However, summer learning at Countryside YMCA offers many benefits.

When your kids are on summer break, it can be a daunting task to have your kids at home for three straight months while you work. You are not only concerned with finding the proper childcare options, but also with keeping your children active and engaged while they’re out of school. We have a variety of summer learning opportunities at Countryside YMCA for your children that will keep them engaged and interested in learning during their summer break. Take a look at some of the major benefits of Countryside YMCA programs in today’s blog post.

Engagement and Interest

One of the most common problems faced by parents with school-age children is disengagement and lack of interest in learning. During the summer, it is common to see school-age children disengage their minds until school starts. This is often unintentional, but it’s typically the result of your kids lacking a summer program that continues to challenge their minds. At Countryside YMCA, our summer learning programs help keep your child’s mind interested in studies throughout the summer. We promote academic growth and advancement through fun and learning at the same time.

Smaller Class Sizes

If your child attends a public school, they are likely faced with large class sizes. This is especially true as they get closer to high school. With summer programs, however, students often have classes with fewer students. This means that they can spend more time with their teachers. Studies show that smaller class sizes, especially in early grades, boost academic achievement. Countryside YMCA summer learning programs give students ample opportunities to grow as students, in part due to class sizes.

Unique Course Work

Children often disengage after school ends, but sometimes they become less interested in their studies even when they’re still in school. Summer learning programs may prevent this disinterest by having classes and course work outside of a normal school curriculum. Countryside YMCA offers unique programs like youth discovery, safety classes, and even Christian emphasis classes that aren’t available at public schools.
