Finding the Best Afterschool Program for Your Child Afterschool programs should meet key quality benchmarks in the areas of staffing, indoor and outdoor environments, program structure, and overall family fit. When selecting an afterschool program, parents should check with the program director to ensure that these quality benchmarks are met. Overall Family Fit First and foremost, an afterschool program must be a good fit for your family’s needs, by accommodating: Your budget, including basic program costs as well as any extras such as field trips Your scheduling needs, whether you need care for a few days, a week, or full time, including school holidays Your desired level of parental involvement Your parenting style and philosophy Staffing – Program staff should: Receive training on topics including health, safety, behavior management, cultural competence and child development Do a good job of maintaining order, especially during transitions between activities Treat children with respect and listen to what they have to say Make children feel welcome and comfortable Know each child’s interests, personality, culture and home language Help children learn by giving them opportunities to think for themselves Praise children when they cooperate, share, care for materials or join in activities Be responsive to the individual health needs of children Communicate clear, consistent expectations and limits to children Indoor and Outdoor Environments/Facilities – The environment and facilities should: Provide comfortable furniture for relaxing Provide quiet space for homework and tutoring Allow open space for all activities Feature a variety of safe play equipment Be clean Provide adequate heat, ventilation and light Program Structure – The program structure should: Allow for adequate supervision; staff ratio should be between 1:20 and 1:12 Give children a wide variety of activities to choose from Provide activities that are stimulating and well suited to the children’s interests and ages Provide a balance of recreational activities as well as assistance with homework, tutoring and other learning activities Balance activities to include structured and unstructured time, as well as teacher-directed and child-initiated experiences Foster the self-worth of each child, and develop the children’s self-care skills Develop personal and interpersonal social skills, and promote respect for cultural diversity Ensure that there are plenty of supplies for each activity Ensure that children receive healthy snacks Ensure that there are plenty of supplies for each activity For more information on quality for afterschool programs, visit the San Francisco Expanded Learning Collaborative at www.sfelc.org.

Considerations for Youth with Special Needs Inclusive programs for youth should: Make a commitment to integrate youth with special needs with other children, and to encourage the development of peer relationships Educate staff on inclusive practices and the nature of disabilities affecting youth Find ways to make accommodations so that youth with special needs can participate fully in programming Program staff should learn as much as possible about each individual child, and ask parents questions such as: What are some of the things your child does with the most interest and enthusiasm? When your child is upset, what helps to soothe them? What kinds of situations does your child find stressful or upsetting? At this time, what could we do to support your child related to: Eating and drinking? Preparing for transitions? Going to the bathroom? Playing alone or with others? Managing clothes? Any specific frustrations related to being in groups? What have you noticed about your child’s sensitivities, if any, with regard to: Touch, such as any physical sensations that your child enjoys or wants to avoid? Attraction to or avoidance of light? Attraction to or avoidance of sound? Is there any information we should know related to food allergies, environmental health or safety, or other individual safety needs? How would your child like to be introduced to the staff and the other children in the program? What are your concerns about your child’s participation in this program? Is there anything else you would like to share that will help us make this a positive experience for your child? Source: California After School Resource Center
