Parents in the U.K. are getting their kids back into group activities.

Dec 09 2021

Parents in the U.K. are getting their kids back into group activities. According to a Childwise survey, the number of preschoolers in the U.K. who have joined organized group activities in the last year has risen by 10%, while 26% of parents surveyed say their preschoolers have participated in group activities this year—up from 16% in 2019. The number is highest among boys 3-4-years-old, with 39% taking part in an organized sports activity. But the data is “similar across genders,” and kids seem to be moving and gathering with their friends more than they were before the pandemic. On average, kids in the U.K. are participating in 1.4 activities—up from 1.2 activities before COVID. Swimming is the most popular activity, with 37% of parents taking their preschoolers to the pool regularly. Dance classes (22% in general, and 31% among 3-4-year-old girls) and group music lessons (14%) followed. (Kidscreen)
