We are now three days into the new school year and either you kid is now a zoom genius or you are still struggling to get your 5 year old to look at the screen (mine doesn't understand that his teacher can't still see him when he goes off for a wander around the room!). It is all very quiet here at the Club after the busyness of summer and there is a strong smell of bleach as the staff are deep cleaning each room and setting up tables and chairs for the start of the Fall Program next week.
The Club staff have been hard at work for the last two weeks preparing for the Club to reopen for the summer. Just as with restaurants, casinos etc there are new guidelines that the Club will be following to ensure that we provide as safe an environment as possible for our members and staff.
For a while it felt like summer would never arrive but it is finally here and we are ready to start our summer program. Below is LOTS of useful information that will be helpful to you over the summer and ensure that your child is prepped, ready and dressed for an amazing summer!
It is true that idle hands or minds can lead to trouble, but even more importantly, idle minds can result in a decrease in educational attainment. Studies have indicated that a child that does no academics over the summer will take until Halloween to be back at their pre-summer level. Here at the Club we do an hour of 'Brain Gain' every day of the summer. Simple, fun but educational activities that focus on reading and math. Doing Brain Gain ensures that our members retain all their learning from the prior school year and start the new year ready for the next level.
