NCASE Brief: How Partnerships and Innovations Support the Increased Need for School-Age Child Care During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Positive outcomes are made possible through school-based and community programs supported by successful partnerships and innovations. Schools and community-based programs, including center-based child care programs and family child care programs, work together to meet the needs of families in their communities.

This practice brief shows how state-level partnerships combined with innovative practices serve to strengthen and coordinate available resources for the benefit of thousands of children and families.  The brief was introduced in a NCASE webinar on February 24, 2021, that included state examples and resources from key Out-of-School Time stakeholders.  You can view the webinar here.
