Child minding or educational activity? : A study about parents views regarding youth after school-centre (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to examine what opinions parents have of the after school-centre, if they know that it has an objective and what that objective is. This will be examined by surveying parents with children in after school-centre. The questions posed in the study are as follows: Do parents know the objective of after school-centre? What is the general view of after school-centre among parents?


The results show that 41 percent know that there is an objective while 39 percent don't. Only 6 percent can describe what the objective is. This suggests that the after school-center is widley overshadowed by the school itself. Many also think that the objective of after school-center is similar to the objective of preschool. Despite these results many parents think after school-centre is important to their children. 


Keywords: After school-centre, after school centre objective, parental cooperation
