BSAC (Basic School Age Care)
BSAC (Basic School Age Care) is a 5 hour introductory level training event for school age care professionals that are new to the field. The training includes the following modules: 1) Health, Safety, & Nutrition, 2) Environmental Design, 3) Child/Youth Development 4) Developmentally Appropriate Activities, 5) Guiding Child Behavior, and 6) Quality School Age Care. This training is required by the NC Division of Child Development for school age care professionals working in licensed programs but is a great training for new staff in any afterschool program setting.

Participants in the online BSAC will be required to complete 1 hour of pre/post work assignments, participate in 4 hours of online coursework and pass a post knowledge assessment with a score of 90% or higher. After successful completion of all course requirements, participants will be notified by email that they have completed the course and received the course certificate.

Participants will engage in interactive activities throughout the event that reinforce health and safety practices, create and promote learning environments that meet all children's developmental needs, foster positive behavior and identify quality elements of school age care.

Questions regarding registrations please contact the course instructor, Erin Marley at or 828-354-0116.
