Here’s how you can make sure your voice as a school-age provider is heard:
• Visit our DEL School-Age Rules page to learn how School’s Out Washington is facilitating a school-age rules rewrite group to make recommendations to DEL.
Also on that page, you can:
- read a letter from our director, Bette Hyde, about this work.
- read the current rules for school-age child care (Washington Administrative Code Chapter 170-151)
- take the survey to tell us what you think about recommended changes and how they would impact you!
Structured time in a school-age program can offer children opportunities to make friends, develop relationships with adult role models, and build self-esteem and conflict resolution skills.
