Pedagogy for school-age childcare deals with children's social development, liberal/popular education and learning in relation to activities in school-age childcare. This area has developed in interaction between school and after-school/school-age childcare practices to create meaningful contexts for the child throughout the day. The field of knowledge of leisure pedagogy is largely informal learning that can be planned, but just as often about taking advantage of learning and development opportunities arising from children's play and interaction.
