"Excellent textbook that puts school-age child care in the forefront! The greatest strengths of this book in it's entirety is it's usefulness beyond class time. This textbook can be referred to as a resource book because it has wonderful constructivist lesson plans throughout each subject area that can be applied to daily classroom use. Easy to read and comprehend, written at a perfect level of rigor for my students. Before and After School teachers are important and they need to have a good attitude. This text can change that attitude."
"The style of writing is perfect for freshman and sophomore students. The book is organized in a way that makes it easy to navigate. The authors know their subject matter and the text information will help students understand DAP, the importance of letting children have a say in how their program operates, and how a school age program is very different from school. These are the reasons why I would highly recommend this text. Students want to keep this book because it is useful after the completion of the class."
