Why does The Wallace Foundation support the study and the online calculator? Two reasons.
First, we believe quality is worth paying for, and that high-quality programs are the ones that can keep kids engaged and produce real benefits.
Second, through many years of supporting learning in the out-of-school hours, we have heard time and again that there is a lack of information on what quality programs cost. The study and this online tool are a step toward providing some answers, and we hope that you find it useful.
