Start Thinking Fall: After School Programs with Enrichment Matters

 

While it’s a busy time for end-of-school-year activities and summer plans, fall is just a few months away, and it’s good time to start planning for it!   We know that over this past year, lots of kids have missed participating in fun, in-person enrichment classes — sports, STEM, dance, pottery, chess, and more — and are excited to return to them.  As things slowly start to make their way back to normal, many great, area companies in the DC area are also looking forward to teaching students in-person once again.

One local, small business focused on quality after-school programs is Enrichment Matters. The company works with PTAs or PTOs to help plan and manage enrichment programs during the school year.  Programs are facilitated through their large network of vetted, enrichment class providers, also mostly local, small businesses — and many who are probably favorites of KidFriendly DC readers!  Their friendly team is made up of parents who personally understand the great benefits of enrichment classes. Most importantly, their services alleviate much of the work asked of school volunteers in order to run a quality after school program.

After a mostly virtual or hybrid school year, kids are eager to experience more activities in-person and will be especially excited for them as schools return to full-time in-person learning this fall. Enrichment Matters offers their pick of opportunities to explore new interests in a fun, social environment that promotes learning.  Kids can learn to play soccer, build a robot, cook a new dish, create some art, play an instrument, learn chess strategies or the art of debate — just to name a few!

It’s not too soon to start making plans for the new school year. Whether you’re a PTA/PTO volunteer or a parent interested in starting an enrichment program at your elementary school, learn how Enrichment Matters can help your school offer exciting, safe after-school activities in the 2021-2022 year.
