How to Recognize a High Quality Afterschool Program

How do I select a quality program for my child? 

  • Observe potential programs you would like your child to participate in.  Look at the relationships between the staff and other students.  Be aware of the physical environment, is it clean and safe?
  • Ask about staff training, experience, qualifications, etc.
  • Ask about extracurricular activities, the daily schedule, academic enrichment, and other activities offered during the program time.
  • Talk to your friends and others about programs they would recommend.
