After school activities
After school activities are organized for kids aged from 2 to 16 years of age. They vary from day care before or after school hours to sporting, cultural, artistic or school remediation activities, organized after school hours and during the holidays too. After school activities are not only reserved to parents who work. There are activities for all budgets and, for certain activities, degressive social rates are applied (they can also be taken care of by the social services (French acronym, CPAS for Centre Public d’Aide Sociale)).
During school period : « Day care » time, before or after school period or sporting, cultural, artistic or school remediation activities are regularly set up by other organizations during the week.
During school holidays : Whether for courses, in camps or in playgrounds, children are welcomed each day of the week and supervised by an animating team who organizes their day.
After school activities can be organized by various structures : the communes (Jeunesse à Bruxelles asbl, Parascolaire d’Uccle, Parascolaire de Forest,...), private associations (internships/stays/holiday plains), Youth structures (Youth Houses (Maisons des Jeunes), Kids Houses (Maisons des Enfants),... ), private sports clubs or dutch-speaking after school activities organized in the Brussels region by the VGC.
