Now that mid-summer is here, parents may be starting to worry about their children undergoing learning loss- what is known by many to be the ‘Summer Slide’
. Dr. Ruth Peters
made a number of great suggestions on how to fight the brain drain for The Today Show
, suggesting local libraries, safe internet sites, summer camps, local museums, concerts, aquariums, parks, etc. All of these activities involve interactive forms of education, to keep the mind active and the body in motion throughout the summer.
We have a great ‘Summer Slide’ webpage with some statistics and additional links to information and suggestions on how to combat the phenomenon. Our Mini-camps, FETCH! Challenges and Summer Drop-in Days are a great place to start, and to top it all off, we’re local!
