Working with School-Age Children examines the role of adults in children's lives outside of the classroom. It offers guidance for adult staff members as they interact with school-aged children, ages 5-12, in out-of-school activities.


Building off the foundations underlying after-school programs and care, the text explores the importance of quality and characteristics of effective programs and individuals that will meet each child's needs and interests out of school. It is filled with strategies for adult involvement, ideas for healthy and productive activities for children, and guidelines for developing after-school programs.


Teachers and child care providers find this book to be a powerful resource for staying involved in children's lives outside of school and providing them with the best options as they grow and develop.
