Summary
The societal trend of primary care givers working outside the home, concern for children's health and safety during the out-of-school time, and growing interest in supplementing K-12 education with enriching activities has focused the attention of educators and policy makers on after-school programs. Prior studies indicated mixed effects of after-school programs on children's development. This study had three purposes. The first was to collect information on program features, staffing, staff education and costs of all after-school programs funded by Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education since 1977 (N = 177) to create a typology of programs. The second purpose was to explore the relations of program sponsor, student population and cost to the quality of the after-school program. The third purpose was to explore the relations of program sponsor, student population and quality of the program to ratings of social competence and academic performance of third grade students enrolled in after-school programs awarded funding by DESE. Differences were found by program sponsor and population. YMCA programs were more likely to be urban, with larger child enrollment, have more children per adult caregiver, charge higher fees and report less parent involvement than school, college or non-profit sponsored programs. Urban programs were more likely to report charging parents higher fees, offering parents more care options, enrolling more children, having a higher child to staff ratio, serving more minority children, offering children more activities and involving parents less than rural programs. Parent involvement was linked to programs offering more care options and services to families. Rural parents rated social skills of third grade students higher for children attending high quality programs than for third grade students attending poor quality after-school programs. Urban teachers rated classroom work higher for third grade students attending high quality after-school programs than for children attending low quality after-school programs
