How Travelling With Your Kids Can Improve Their EducationSlide2
It’s a common misconception that our kid’s educational capacities become somewhat stunted over the summer vacation, and that taking them away with us provides them merely with a happy escape from school, and that’s it. But as it so happens, the reality may be completely different, with research showing that kids who travel with their families, often show improved cognitive growth compared to those kids who don’t vacation.
How year-round program’s may not be in your child’s best interests:
Many schools across the country have begun operating year-round programs,Slide3
and while it may seem that this prevents them from having to catch up on what they might have missed over theirvacation period, this may well not be the case. Many researchers looking into the benefits of vacationing with kids, have shown us that family travel can, and should, be a valuable part of a child’s overall education, and can promote healthy cognitive growth and encourage them to be more curious about the world around them. Kids’ minds are like sponges, ready to soak up an incredible amount of information, and family vacations provide them with the perfect opportunity to broaden their horizons and make their growing minds even more open to learning.Slide4
Making your summer vacation fun and educational:
While it’s important that your child is given the opportunity to unwind and relax while on vacation – as after all, school can be stressful for kids – if you’re able to combine that with an educational component, so much the better.
Some of the ways in which you can achieve this are as simple as visiting museums or sites of historic interest while on vacation, enrolling your child in one of the many enrichment programs that resorts offer for their guests, or spending a couple of days visiting national parks to help them learn more about wildlife and the natural environment.Slide5
You’ll find that your kids will become even more willing to learn once they are out of the school environment and with their loved ones, and you will not have to worry about the trip becoming boring, especially if the whole family get into the spirit of learning and embrace the opportunity.
The benefits of vacationing with your kids:
Research over the years has shown that there is clear and significant evidence of a link between kids that vacation with their families, and improved academic achievements at school. Here are just a few examples of this from the recent studies:Slide6
Higher academic scores were achieved on tests conducted in schools, among those children who had taken a recent vacation with their family. Those who had remained at home, did not score so highly.
The duration of the vacation period had a positive impact upon the child’s academic achievements
Kids who had spent time visiting museums, sites of historical interest and other interactive places, performed better in tests than those kids who had spent their time at home.Slide7
The results speak for themselves, and are unanimous in proving that travelling with your kids can improve their education.
So, what are you waiting for? Start planning your educational vacation with your kids now and watch as they astound you with their capacity to learn and better themselves! The trip doesn’t even have to cost a lot, provided you expose them to new environments and encourage their thirst for learning, you can help to educate your kids on a budget, or splash out and give them a fun and educational trip that they’ll never forget.Slide8
