Advice for Choosing the Right After-School Activity for Your Child

Just like adults, children also need a way to unwind and relax after school and that is what afterschool activities areas supposed to do. However, not all activities all children are the same or have the same interests. That is why it is important that you and your child choose the right afterschool activity that matches their needs and interests.

3 Tips to Help You Choose the Right After-School Activity for Your Child

  • Ask your child what they enjoy doing and what interests them, then let them try out a few different things first so they can know what they would enjoy more. Many programs offer trial classes so it can be easier to decide what it is that they really want to enroll in.
  • Learn what your child´s hidden talents are. Ask your child´s teachers and any other family members or caregivers if they have noticed any special abilities or strengths that your child has and make your own observations. You might learn that music or painting is your child´s talent. Encourage them to try those things but don´t force them to take them up until it is something they decide they also enjoy. You don´t want to overwhelm them or force them.


  • Choose something that interests your child but that also compliments their qualities. For example, if your child is extremely energetic and is always running all over the place, they might need to do more physical activities after school, such as soccer, sports, or have them join a children´s fitness program.
