The National After School Association's NSACA Accreditation standards give educators a solid framework upon which they can design multiple activities suitable for children at any developmental level. Our video incorporates these standards, which cover:

- human relationships

- indoor and outdoor environments

- activities

- safety

- health and nutrition

- administration

Center directors and group workers demonstrate how they plan and develop schedules, activities, and trips for children within the context of these standards. The hot topic of homework is discussed from these different points of view. Viewers will find that staff planning, flexible schedules, teamwork, the design of appropriate activities and staff who are "in tune" with school-age children are the key to planning high quality programs. Veteran teachers describe how they respect and reflect the culture of the community that they represent. Directors discuss how they partner with and involve parents in school-age programs through activities such as the family literacy library, field trips, volunteer opportunities in the classroom, and on-site ESL or GED classes.
