NCASE Resource Library
The School-Age Consumer Education toolkit shares consumer education information, including state examples and resources, on the physical, social, and emotional health and development of school-age children and engagement efforts with their parents and families.
This brief describes what choices families make for school-age care and why. The brief includes two tables that provide information on what type of care children are in by factors like age, type, family income. The brief also provides research that shows what factors are important for parents in selecting care. This is the second brief in a 3-part series.
