TCHE110M - Introduction to School Age Programming (3-0-3)

This course will provide a foundation for the importance of out-of-school-time programs and explore the philosophy and goals for high quality programs. Focus will be on the current theories and practices relevant to the care of school-age children and youth in both classroom and recreational settings, including before/after school programs, camps, etc. Students will identify and examine the components of quality classroom and recreational programs, the rules, regulations and ethical practices governing group child care for school age children and youth and the roles and responsibilities of the providers. The importance of building positive relationships between home, school and community will be emphasized. Observation of a school age care program will be required.

Save$ - Students will see cost savings in this program if courses in the major are taken in order, because major courses build on previously purchased books and other materials.
