enrichment classes for children

These days, there are so many children enrichment classes for all ages - reading, art, music, craft, gymnastics, dance, sports..etc, so many that it's hard to decide if they are essential and necessary. Personally, I do believe in including enrichment classes into the child's life, provided he/she is keen in that subject and it's not too costly.

A recent report by several independent researchers concludes that participating in the arts nurtures the development of social, personal and cognitive skills. Programs based on Arts can improve academic achievement and decrease the tendency towards delinquency. It helps youth form positive attitudes about themselves and build self-esteem.
