School-Age Consumer Education Toolkit Update

We are pleased to announce that the School-Age Consumer Education Toolkit from NCASE has been updated!  New resources have been added and there is a new section, 'Spotlight on Summer,' with related resources and state examples.  The Toolkit shares consumer education information specific to school-age childcare and engagement with parents and families.  In addition, the Toolkit features a video that shows the importance of afterschool and summer care for families with data and details about the experiences of children served through federal subsidies.

This Toolkit is designed to have broad relevance to state-, territory-, and tribal-level professionals, including Child Care and Development Fund administrators and state afterschool network leads; 21st Century Community Learning Center leads; child care resource and referral agency staff members; and direct child-serving practitioners.

NCASE thanks many partners for contributing to this work, including the National Center on Early Childhood Health and Wellness; National Center on Parent, Family, and Community Engagement; and Child Care State Capacity Building Center. Please contact the NCASE team at ncase@ecetta.info with any questions about the School-Age Consumer Education Toolkit.
