Child Care & After-School Programs
Program Image  Most of today's children and youth will spend more time in child care and after-school programs than in formal education. NIFA provides resources and national leadership to Land-Grant Universities to conduct research, education, and extension programs that will increase the quantity and improve the quality of child care (early care and education), school-age care (after-school), and teen out-of-school programs.
