The Brookline After-School Special: A Program for Older Elementary Children in Brookline, Massachusetts. The Parent's Perspective and the Director's Perspective.
Wheeler, Samuel B.; Wilson, Cynthia E.
This brief paper describes the "Brookline After School Special:" a program created to meet the after-school needs of older elementary school-age children throughout the city of Brookline, Massachusetts. The rationale for the program, a discussion of aspects considered in implementing the program, and reflections on the first year of operation and present concerns are provided. In addition, the program director briefly comments on program design and staff activities and responsibilities. A number of issues that emerged from a self-evaluation of the program are indicated and discussed to highlight underlying questions and everyday concerns that arise in providing after-school day care for an older age group of children.
