How Do You Engage Your Children? Fun Extra- Curricular

As an educational institution at Ella Henri Schools, we believe that  learning for children should be well-rounded. The world is changing by the minute and it is important that our children have a fantastic education in a calm, loving and fun environment. It is needful that parents help their children have an experience that will help them want to keep learning, give them an advantage to interact in a relax environment that isn’t totally academics based. This will help your children have a balance inside the classroom, at home and with the world.

The best way to do this is to engage them in activities that are physical, fun and interactive. They learn manners, they can compete to better themselves and also grow to be stronger and passionate about different things that will eventually better their future and community on the long run.

Some of these activities are Swimming, Dancing, Leggo, Martial Arts to mention a few.
