2.1.4 Program Activities for School-Age Children Developing Relationships for School-Age Children

The facility should offer opportunities to school-age children for developing trusting, supportive relationships with the staff and with peers.
Although school-age children need more independent experiences, they continue to need the guidance and support of adults. Peer relationships take on increasing importance for this age group. Community service opportunities can be valuable for this age group.
