Research supports that children thrive through close relationships with adults. This workshop will provide the rational and how to’s toward implementing a stronger relationship-based model of care for children enrolled in after-school care. This model of care ensures that one caregiver has a primary responsibility for an assigned number of children within the larger group. The goal is to ensure the continuity of adults who work with the children to develop a deeper understanding of the children’s individual needs. This model strengthens decision making in children as they are part of the planning and programming. It also enhances communication with families, making links to home culture and context.
Facilitator: Tyler Summers is the Program Manager at Jericho Kids Club, Instructor of School-Age Care at Douglas College and Chair of SACCA BC. He will provide a summary of a year-long pilot case study as well as tools for implementation.
