Provides students the tools to plan and implement developmentally appropriate curriculum designed for out-of-school learning spaces that serve children aged kindergarten through grade 5. Topics include growth and development; learning environments and curriculum development; observation and assessment of children and youth; relationships and interactions; family, school, and community relationships; safety and wellness; professional development and leadership. Students learn the importance of supporting equity and inclusion while providing quality out-of-school time programming for children. The framework course curriculum is aligned with the National Afterschool Association’s ten course competencies for afterschool and positive youth development professionals, and with the New Hampshire Afterschool
Credential. Students are expected to complete 2 hours/week of observation and practice hours in a before- and/or afterschool program.
