Picture this: an afterschool program where children want to be there.
They want to go to the homework club. They want to write an article for the afterschool newspaper. They want to do more than color or play the same games every day.
Picture this: an afterschool staff that wants to be there.
They participate in on-going trainings and have earned an Afterschool Credential. They are knowledgeable about school day learning and they organize a homework time that helps children recall what they have learned. They plan stimulating, enriching activities for children that expand both their school day experiences and their understanding of the world.
These are the pictures across nh is painting throughout NH. With a cadre of talented consultants, we provide comprehensive technical assistance, structured coaching and mentoring, and both basic and advanced professional development opportunities to the school-age, afterschool staff.

NH’s Afterschool Professional Development System - Revised
The NH Afterschool Professional Development System was originally launched in 2010 offering those working in out of school time programs a means to recognize their education, experience, skills and talents. After months of thoughtful and diligent work, the Program Quality Subcommittee of the New Hampshire Afterschool Network (NHAN) released a revised edition at the NHAN annual meeting on October 7, 2013. The newly revised edition includes new lattice levels and provides for better alignment with the New Hampshire Child Care Licensing Rules and the increased requirement for professional development at all levels. A complete copy of the revised NH Afterschool Professional Development System can be viewed by clicking here.
Have questions about the new Afterschool Credential lattices or need help with your application? We are here to support you! Download a copy of the revised version of the Credential Application Packet here and call us on our toll-free helpline 1.855.302.6678.
