In a study conducted by the National Afterschool Alliance, an estimated 10.2 million children participate in after school or aftercare programs. In addition, another 19.4 million children would participate if an aftercare program was available to them.
There is clearly a need for aftercare programs and these programs provide many benefits to children and families. One of the ways programs can successfully provide these benefits is to schedule the program in a way that meets the needs of the children it serves.
This course will cover the importance of schedules, how scheduling relates to an aftercare program structure, and will walk through the best practice elements of creating your own aftercare schedule for your program.
