Why Extended Day?
At Springboard, we’re always thinking about ways our afterschool programs can help support families like yours. In a 2012 study from the University of Wisconsin-Madison called “Viewing After-School Programs Through the Family Impact Lens”, the benefits of afterschool care are explored.
The UWM study found several benefits of afterschool programs for the families they serve including:
- Build students’ self-esteem and academic confidence.
- Help students become better community members.
- Create networks for parents.
- Take the guesswork out of your child’s care, which means you can focus on a job that supports your family!
“ My son and I are absolutely thrilled with Springboard. He has done so much better in school with the extra help he receives on his homework each night. It used to be a battle to do homework or any extra school work at night...Now that he does it all at Springboard with their help, he understands the work. He is very excited and happy to go to Springboard each day. ”
