The NAA standards for quality school-age care: Standards at a glance


The NAA Standards describe the practices that lead to stimulating, safe, and supportive programs for young people ages 5 to 14 in their out-of-school time. These “Standards at a Glance” give you an overview of the Standards which are organized into 36 “keys” to quality. The first 20 keys are things that you can see happening in a program. The other 16 “Administration” keys describe the policies and “behind the scenes” practices that are the foundation of a quality program. (author abstract)
