An article in this edition of Afterschool Matters is written by NJ’s Denise Sellers, Executive Director of Haddonfield Child Care.
I recommend everyone read her article, Nana for a New Generation.
This article helped me to realize that when we are with children each day…we must never lose sight of the prize!
The Afterschool Matters is part of the Afterschool Matters Initiative. Originally consisting of two different publications, a yearly journal and The Occasional Papers, these have been merged into a single publication issued 2-3 times per year. Afterschool Matters is a national, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to promoting professionalism, scholarship and consciousness in the field of afterschool education. Published by the National Institute on Out-of-School Time with support from the Robert Bowne Foundation, the journal serves those involved in developing and managing programs for youth during the out-of-school time hours, in addition to those engaged in research and in shaping youth development policy.
