The entire out-of-school field is in flux due to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, and providers, practitioners, and families are struggling to provide access to quality enrichment and care for school-age children. The National Center on Afterschool and Summer Enrichment (NCASE) invites you to join a listening session designed to help stakeholders in the field better understand the current state of school-age care in the country and specifically informed by lessons learned through efforts to deliver safe and meaningful summer programming in 2020.
This interactive session will include:
- Discoveries from the latest update to the national and state school-age data profiles, which provide data on Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) program support for school-age children
- A panel of presenters who will draw upon the most recent data on both historic and post-COVID-19 school-age care and will consider how these data can guide future programming
- A response from Shannon Christian, Director of the Office of Child Care (OCC), followed by opportunities for participants to ask questions about how school-age child care will continue through the fall and winter.
The session will include panelists from:
- Afterschool Alliance
- American Camp Association
- National Summer Learning Association.

This webinar series is designed for state, territory, and tribal-level professionals, including CCDF administrators; state and local education agency staff members; statewide afterschool network leads and National AfterSchool Association affiliate staff members; 21st Century Community Learning Center leads; child care resource and referral agency personnel; and other training and technical assistance professionals.
