HELP! What do I do in Afterschool?

Course Number
This training covers the basics of an effective afterschool program.  It provides the importance of having a set schedule, differenciated plans, routines, and transitions.  Not only will the difference between rules and expectations be defined,  but the effectiveness for them to be understood and practiced in your classroom. Creating a defined space with areas/centers will be shared along with the School Age Care Environmental Rating Scale and how it increases the quality of classroom space.
