Mission Statement

The time frame between release of school and 6:00 PM is consistently showing in research to be the one most dangerous for pre-teens and teens: drugs, alcohol, sex, violence, crime, and less dangerous but still harmful things like sitting in front of a TV or computer for hours, having difficulty with peer relationships, and the like all are most likely to occur during these hours. At AEC we believe it is extemely important to offer young people between 9 - 14 years old, in 5th - 8th grade, enriching and engaging alternatives for their afternoon. As a licensed child care provider in the state of Massachusetts, The AEC philosophy is that all students should have a safe place to come after school where they can socialize, learn, be engaged, and have fun. AEC strives to assist students to successfully transition from childhood to young adulthood. AEC encourages the innate curiosity of students and assists them in exploring new ideas and experiences as they enter this new stage of development. We believe that all students deserve the opportunity to reach their full potential in a community of peers.
