Safety:

As the responsible adult in the room, after-school workers need to able to respond to basic emergencies and to look out for children’s welfare while in their care. Care attendants are often trained in CPR and basic first aid, which may be required upon hiring. Workers need to be apprised of state laws on child safety procedures and creating a safe environment for children. If kids need to take medications, the care providers also need to know the protocols involved and know how to respond to a health emergency.

They may also be responsible for writing daily, weekly or monthly reports of children’s behaviors and habits, and communicating that information to parents and educators. Some attendants also keep track of payments, and help schedule the right amount of staff for the number of kids attending the program.
