An Introduction to School-Age Care in Canada aims to teach educators to develop programs with the children, rather than for the children.  It includes strategies for developing a sense of community, and creating learning environments and experiences children find fun and challenging, while emphasizing the involvement of the children in all aspects of the program. 

The text uses a practical hands-on approach which provides the reader with general information on how school-age children develop and learn, and then focuses on promoting social, emotional, physical, language and cognitive learning in a variety of settings.
