The Early Education Centre - School holiday programmes

What Are the Benefits of a School Holiday Program?

The school holidays are always a good time for children, not so much for parents. Routines are out of place and good babysitters are hard to find. As a solution, The Early Education Centre (TEEC) hosts a Character-Building School Holiday Programme. Character building at an early age is important for helping your child grow into a strong, confident adult.

Why is early education important?

Early childhood education is about having young children take part in activities and experiences designed to affect developmental changes in them. The aim is to create a safe space for young children to learn through play and prepare the child for improved performance during the later school years. 

It is also a time where children start learning how to interact with others, including peers, teachers and parents. This goes hand-in-hand with the development of their critical, social and emotional skills which helps form partnerships between the child, their parents and their teachers.

School holiday programmes

During the school holiday period, opportunities to learn and grow are missed and a lot of children are potentially exposed to negative social behaviour. With school holiday programmes parents have the opportunity to ensure their children are engaged in recreational and educational opportunities. For many children, holiday programmes offer an opportunity to rise above their circumstances and develop their character while having fun.

Benefits of a school holiday programme

With holiday programmes, children stay out of mischief and have the opportunity to make new friends in a safe space. They can develop interests in an active and engaging environment. At TEEC’s holiday programme, they are in a place with stimulating activities that cater to their mental and physical well-being. 

Children will benefit from a space where they are able to learn independence and safely create beautiful memories. All assisting with their mental, physical and emotional intelligence, which only assists with their development as human beings. 

The Early Education Centre hosts a school holiday programme with the aim of allowing children to be children. They approach the holistic development of children by paying attention to the physical, emotional, relational, intellectual and spiritual aspects of the child.
