The Summer Slide is not a new attraction at the water park; it’s a term to describe the documented slip in children’s academic skills over the summer months. The good news? Studies also show that parents can help their kids keep this slide to a minimum during this time by engaging them in activities to promote learning.
This engagement of children, according to the National Summer Learning Association (NSLA), can also lead to higher graduation rates, teach them new skills, allow them to develop previously unseen talents, and foster their creative potential. DCMP helps parents develop opportunities for education and enrichment through interesting video experiences. For example, summer reading is one of the best antidotes to the summer slide.
