A publication concerning the out of school or day care of children from ages six to fourteen is presented. It is pointed out that all good day care programs share at least two features: (1) They add to and strengthen the kind of care and guidance provided by parents; and (2) They aim at providing the child with experiences which will encourage the healthy growth of his body, intellect and personality. The purpose of this handbook is to guide community groups and individuals in their efforts to create good programs for school age children. It is divided into four chapters: The School Age Child, Elements of Developmental Care for School Age Children, Program Settings for School Age Children, and Program Examples. (Author)
