Summer Learning and Enrichment: Tips for School-Age Care Providers
The National Center on Afterschool and Summer Enrichment (NCASE) has created a tipsheet, Summer Learning and Learning Enrichment: Tips for School-Age Care Providers, to share ideas with child care providers of things to think about before, during, and at the end of summer. Specific suggestions involve creating a plan for the summer months, building a relationship with families, engaging children in activities to help prevent the summer slide, and keeping children healthy and active during the summer months. Summertime child care providers can help children have a fun, healthy, and enriching summer!
A companion tipsheet is also available from NCASE: Summer Learning Fun! Tips for Parents/Caregivers. This tipsheet provides concrete ideas for parents and caregivers around how to engage their children in fun, meaningful learning activities throughout the summer. Summertime child care providers can share this tipsheet with families to further support summer learning and enrichment experiences for the children they serve.
