School-Age Roundtable: Back to Basics
The Role of the School-age Provider in Supporting Positive Behaviors- October 28th
In order for children to demonstrate positive behaviors, out of –school staff must provide them with a
learning environment that encourages positive relationships with both adults and peers. Additionally,
classroom routines and activities must foster the development of social-emotional skills.
Building Positive Relationships in After School- November 18th
Participants will share, discuss and implement best practices that can be used to and strengthen
relationships with children, families, and colleagues. We will gain an awareness of how our
personal experiences may influence our relationships. We will learn how verbal and non-verbal
messages are processed and perceived and develop strategies to communicate positive messages of
acceptance, and warmth to support children, families, and professionals.
Sneaking In the Standards in After School Programs- December 15th
Do you want lots of fun and engaging activities that focus on academics? Do you want children to
learn without losing the playful, engaging, characteristics that make afterschool such an enjoyable
part of childhood? You don’t have to choose between fun and academics. When learning is active,
engaging, hands-on, novel, relevant, and playful we can build positive relationships that make
afterschool special and enhance academic achievement this is a highly participatory workshop
where participants will leave with a potpourri of ideas for incorporating playful activities that link
to the PA Learning Standards!
