Hours of Risk or Opportunity? The State of School-Age Care in Arizona.
Thompson, Anne, Ed.
With a growing number of families with both parents in the workforce, there is a continuing struggle to find child care for school-age children during the out-of-school hours: before and after school, summers, and holidays. This report provides an overview of the need for school-age care in Arizona and highlights the state's major program providers (licensed and certified school-age programs, 21st Century Community Learning Centers, parks and recreation programs, school programs, and additional programs/activities). The report also provides examples of out-of-school child care needs assessments and program inventories developed and undertaken in other states and localities, and identifies key questions and issues that should be addressed as part of a more systematic needs assessment of school-age care. The report's appendices present additional resources, a summary of school-age care licensing requirements, a 21st Century Community Learning Center program summary table, a parks and recreation department program summary table, a site list of Boys and Girls Clubs of Arizona, and an Oregon needs assessment sample survey.
