Abstract

Policy-makers are looking to after-school programmes to improve family and child wellbeing and are searching for evidence-based ways to improve the quality of after-school programmes. This study examines whether the Good Behaviour Game, a behaviour management curriculum designed for school classrooms, can be easily migrated to academically focused after-school programmes. Our results are based on programme observations, qualitative interviews and ratings of implementation fidelity. We describe the structure and activities in these after-school programmes and then identify challenges to implementing and evaluating classroom-based interventions in the after-school setting.
