Families and Expanded Learning Opportunities: Working Together to Support Children’s Learning

May 4, 2012

Families play an important role as the primary bridge between the multiple learning settings where their children learn and grow. For this reason, there is an increasing need for expanded learning opportunities (ELOs), including afterschool and other out-of-school time programs, to engage families in more meaningful ways to better support children's learning and development.  In Families and Expanded Learning Opportunities: Working Together to Support Children’s Learning explores the ways that families and ELOs must work as equal partners in order to ensure ELOs are contributing to children's learning in meaningful ways.
