This article spotlights the new Office of Child Care-funded National Center on Afterschool and Summer Enrichment that EDC is leading, and features quotes from EDC Senior Project Director Tony Streit, who is heading up the center: "It’s part of a comprehensive technical assistance system for the Office of Child Care,” said Tony Streit. "This is really a new strategy for them." He said that the Office of Child Care recognized there’s a strong intersection between the child care and after-school fields. In fact, the office serves approximately 1.5 million low-income children, more than one-third of whom are school age. It spends $19 billion annually on care for school-age children.
