Before- and After-School Care, Programs and Activities of Children in Kindergarten Through Eighth Grade: 2001 - Based on the results of a nationwide survey, this report studies the prevalence of before- and after-school care arrangements; patterns of arrangements (one or multiple arrangements and who provides care); and amount of time spent in care, by student grade, race/ethnicity, family type (two- versus one-parent households); and parent factors (including language primarily spoken at home, highest level of education, motherís employment status and household income). Findings also are reported on the types of activities children engaged in during care arrangements, location of care and time in transit, child-to-adult ratios, characteristics of providers (age and relation to student) and more. The findings reveal that half of all students in grades K-8 received after-school care, and 20% of K-8 students are supervised in before-school care arrangements.
