please respond to Perla with 200 words :
- I feel like the role of programs caring for children before and after school programs should be positive, safe, and fun environments for children to learn and grow. Most of these children are in school all day, therefore, the thought of doing more work after school can be a big stressful for them. That is why it should be fun and not feel like work.
- I found it easy because, the programs I mentioned, I was already familiarized with. I have a friend who work in one of them and she always explains how it works and all the activities they have available for the children. I was pleased with everything I found, because as I mentioned, I already knew about those programs and I had already heard great things about them.
- I personally do feel the existing programs are meeting the needs of children in our communities, at least the programs I listed. I know most of these programs that are not family day cares, actually require some kind of child development or early childhood education background, they don’t just hire anyone who likes to work with children. The employees actually know what they are doing and how to approach the children depending on their age.
