"As Australia strives to ensure our early childhood education and care facilities and programs are exemplary, those who lead school age care programs have a tremendous responsibility to make their own service the very best it can be. One significant step in achieving a high quality service is to build strong relationships with the school or schools where the children attending the service are enrolled. The pressure on schools to demonstrate improvement in student’s learning has never been greater than it is today. School staff can engage in a powerful alliance with school age care services to maximise the benefits and opportunities for children provided through participation in positive learning environments outside the classroom. We recommend this resource to school age care and school leaders who wish to work together for mutual benefit and to provide an exceptional wrap-around service to families and children in the school community. It contains practical, achievable suggestions illustrated by case studies that demonstrate what can be achieved when schools and school age care services work in partnership to achieve great outcomes for their children."--Foreword.
