We’ve all heard that a child’s mind is like a sponge: constantly absorbing everything around them. As we watch our children grow, we get the pleasure of viewing their development first-hand. One of the most rewarding moments of parenting can be watching your child learn something new, from their first word, to their first steps, to their first day at school. As parents, we want to do all we can to challenge our children to learn more and embrace new skills along the way. Learning at Hatch is an organic part of this journey, and one that’s so beneficial for a child’s ever-growing mind!
We are fortunate to have many amazing options for what our kids can do after school. While letting kids have downtime is an important after school activity, the large variety of after-school programming provides options that are just as unique as our kids, and add a real depth to children’s social, emotional, physical and academic development.
We’ve talked to a handful of Hatch parents in order to learn more about their experiences. First up is Leslie, whose daughter Avalyn is nine years old and loves computers.
