Working with School-Age Children examines the role of adults in children’s lives outside of the classroom. It offers guidance for adult staff as they interact with children during out-of-school time.
Building on a foundation of child development theory, the author explores the importance of quality and the characteristics of effective programs and individuals who can best meet children’s needs. The text contains strategies for adult involvement, healthy and productive activities, and guidelines for developing and sustaining afterschool programs.
School-age program staff and afterschool teachers will find this book a valuable resource for becoming involved in children’s lives outside of school, and for providing the best possible environments for children.
