Afterschool and summer care for school age children is an important decision for families. When school is out families seek to find quality child care programing for their children. Families look for programs that focus on safety, offer opportunities to complete homework as well as time to play games, sports, interact with other children, and offer snacks and down time. Families seek the same quality child care programming for their school-age children, as for children who have not yet entered school.
