Caring for School Age Children, 5e is a strongly based on research, and practical information that can be put to use immediately in a child care setting. Emphasis is placed on providing the most pertinent information needed by all those involved in caring for school-age children. Guidelines for program planning and creating an environment that leads to a solid curriculum backed by theoretical information and activities to utilize that knowledge are included. The importance of literacy is stressed throughout, and readers are shown the positive effect of imagination and the arts on cognitive development. Information on how to incorporate the No Child Left Behind is also included.

Jennifer Parker is currently a professor of Early Childhood Education Studies at Moorpark College, Moorpark, California. She recently was instrumental in adding a school-age component to the child development degree program. Her classes include students with diverse backgrounds and experience, ranging from entry level to those who are currently teaching in early childhood programs. She received her Master's Degree from California State University, Northridge, and has had extensive experience working with children, families, and adults. She founded a parent-support program for infants and toddlers in a developmentally appropriate environment and has been a lead kindergarten teacher in an on-campus demonstration school. She is currently a member of an evaluation team using the School Age Environmental Rating Scale to evaluate a multi-site before-and-after school child care program.
