School’s Out
Challenges and Solutions for School-Age Programs



Item number: 15969
Coming Soon. 

You may have noticed out-of-school-time care is burgeoning. As more families have two working parents, states and school districts are swooping in to provide supervision of children before and after school, during school breaks, and during the summer. And, as these programs grow, they continue to adapt to new approaches of out-of-school learning. Gone are the days of board games and swing sets!

School’s Out: Challenges and Solutions for School-Age Programs will cover all bases of creating a quality program:

  • What quality school-age care looks like
  • Forms of out-of-school-time care
  • Standards, credentials, accreditation—what they are, and how to get them
  • Licensing, regulations, basic safety, risk management, supervision and nutrition
  • Roles of the teachers and administrators
