Achieving and Maintaining Quality in Afterschool Programs (AMAP)

The Department of Children and Families Office of Child Care Regulation is offering an updated course to provide child care professionals who work in afterschool programs with the tools they need to assess their program and plan for continual improvement to achieve quality. Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the relationship between standards, self-assessment, and program improvement plans in enhancing the quality of care
  • Describe how to conduct a program assessment using The Quality Self-Assessment & Improvement Guide's assessment tool
  • Explain how to apply Florida Afterschool Network's standards to the literacy components of afterschool programs
  • Demonstrate the ability to create a program improvement plan

Individuals who have completed the School-Age Program Quality Standards and Self-Assessment or Standards for Quality Afterschool Programs and Quality Self-Assessment and Improvement for Afterschool Programs to meet introductory training requirements do not have to retake the course and their existing certificates will remain on their child care training transcript. However, individuals may choose to take the new course to earn CEUs or in-service credit.
