How To Choose An After School Program

Is this your first time choosing an after school program near me? We asked some parents (the real experts) for their tips and suggestions on finding high-quality care for their school-age kids during the school year. We hope these ideas will make choosing the right program easier. Here are some tips for finding an after-school program:

1. Determine your needs: Before you start looking for a child care program, determine what your child’s needs are. Think about what your child enjoys doing, what subjects they may need help in, and what their schedule looks like.

2. Visit: Visit the programs you are considering to get a sense of what they offer. Observe the staff, the operators, the facilities, and the activities.

3. Ask questions: Ask questions about the program’s philosophy, curriculum, and policies. Inquire about the qualifications of the staff, their training, and their experience.

4. Consider the cost: Consider the cost of the program, including any fees or expenses. Some programs may offer a child care fee subsidy or scholarships, so be sure to ask about those.

5. Check for safety: Make sure the program has safety measures in place, such as background checks for staff and procedures for emergencies.

6. Read reviews: Check online reviews or talk to other parents who have used the program to get an idea of what to expect.

7. Finally, trust your instincts. If something doesn’t feel right, it’s probably best to keep looking until you find the right program for your child.
