Course Description:

During this seven-week online course, students will be provided an overview of the knowledge and skills individuals need to care for school-age children between the ages of five and twelve in a group setting. Students will learn the current models of afterschool and out-of-school programs and the underlying philosophy and benefits of each. In addition, students will learn about the roles and responsibilities of the school-age child care provider and be able to understand and apply the basic principles of child/youth growth and development.

Additionally, this course serves as the first course for the Wisconsin Registry’s After School and Youth Development credential. The Registry develops professional credentials to meet the unique needs of childhood care and education practitioners. To receive the After School and Youth Development credential, a student must enroll in 4 three-credit courses including: Foundations in After School and Youth Development, Engaging Youth in Groups, Intentionality in Programming, and Capstone Course: Site Programming and Operations. After completing necessary coursework, students apply to the registry to receive their credential. For more information go to: http://www.the-registry.org.

One book is required for all participants in this class. UWGB will contact you with more information about the book following the course registration deadline.
