Promoting Learning and Growth for School-Age Children During the Summer Months

On May 16, 2019, NCASE facilitated a webinar to share strategies and introduced new resources aimed at mitigating and preventing the “summer slide” of lost academic progress that many school-age children experience during the summer months. Highlighting the value of summertime child care programming, the webinar included discussion of:

  • NCASE’s new summer-related resources
  • The importance of summer months in promoting school-age children’s growth and development  
  • Strategies for school-age child care providers and parents to prevent the summer slide, including a new set of tip sheets from NCASE   
  • Ways that Child Care Resource and Referral agencies can share information on promising practices with providers and parents
