Listening Session: The State of School-Age Child Care – Summer 2020

On August 6, 2020 the National Center on Afterschool and Summer Enrichment (NCASE) hosted a listening session designed to help stakeholders in the field better understand the current state of school-age care in the country, specifically informed by lessons learned through efforts to deliver safe and meaningful summer programming in 2020. 

This interactive session included:

  • Discoveries from the latest update to the national and state school-age data profiles, which provide data on Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) support for school-age children
  • A panel of presenters from Afterschool Alliance, American Camp Association and National Summer Learning Association, who drew upon the most recent data on both historic and post-COVID-19 school-age care to consider how these data can guide future programming 
  • A response from Shannon Christian, Director of the Office of Child Care, followed by opportunities for participants to ask questions about how school-age child care will continue through the fall and winter.
