Program Planning for 6-12 Year-Olds in Day Care Centers: The Record of a Pilot Institute on Planning and Developing Creative Programs for School-Agers' Growth Through Play.
Eckstein, Esther
This pamphlet offers guidelines for directors and teachers interested in providing good after-school day care programs for children 6-12 years of age. The typical school-age child served by after-school programs in New York City is described in the introduction, and the importance of creative play is emphasized. Topics include: (1) the role of the director, particularly in reference to evaluating teachers through classroom observation and providing for inservice workshops; (2) the selection of basic equipment and supplies appropriate for a flexible, creative, low-cost program; (3) the problems inherent in dealing with restless children after school; and (4) the role of the teacher in providing the proper physical and emotional environment for children. Suggestions are given for expanding after-school programs into potential learning centers which build upon children's pre-existing interests and provide both indoor and outdoor activities. Outlines of three workshops designed for directors are included in the appendices along with a bibliography. (ED)
