With the beginning of the holidays comes the question about what to do with the children, whether to leave them at home or enroll them in a summer course. In the current times, the number of moms and dads who have no one who takes care of their children during the mornings is not small. At the same time, summer course offers have arisen everywhere, sometimes from people who only pursue business without having adequate facilities or personnel to care for children.
Here are five tips for choosing a summer course. But before, it is worth remembering that vacations are to enjoy and to leave a good memory in your children. It is not about enrolling them in a course that neither pleases nor has served them anything.
- Identify what you want to get for your child: reinforce some knowledge, learn something new or enjoy only living with children of their age and recreational activities.
- Always keep the opinion of the little ones in mind. With it and with your experience you can decide which activities are best for you and if you like the place where you take them. If they are not comfortable, it is difficult to work.
- Check the experience they have on the course site, if the facilities are in good condition and are safe, if the bathrooms are clean, if there are emergency exits, how many staff they have and if they are trained in the delivery of activities and in care of children.
- Ask for the full plan of activities. Artistic and cultural workshops encourage children's creativity. Swimming, ballet or dancing will always help you in life. There are even courses that offer ecological activities that motivate the environment.
- If they offer you trips to museums or amusement parks, always ask for the staff that will accompany the children, for the food they will consume and for the company that will transport them. This is part of the security measures that are never to be prioritized.
