The Acton-Boxborough Community Education Extended Day Program offers before and after school care, a well as childcare during school breaks, for children in grades K-6 who attend one of our District's six elementary schools.  
The Extended Day program has sites in all 6 Elementary Schools in Acton & Boxborough.

Extended Day students are grouped by grade levels, with separate staff members assigned to each group.  The program is located in the school cafeteria. We have use of the computer lab for homework, the gym, the tot lot and the playground. 

The Extended Day program is designed to allow children freedom to choose among such activities as arts & crafts, nature & science, games, cooking and sports.  A quiet study area is available for students who wish to do homework.  Outdoor recreations periods (weather permitting) are scheduled daily.  Milk or juice and a nutritious snack are provided.

Our professional staff consists of a Director, Head Teachers, Teacher Assistants, and a number of high school students who (assist in the program under the direction of the teachers).  All Head Teachers must hold a bachelor’s degree in education or a related field.

Extended Day provides a safe, warm and comfortable environment designed to provide a wide range of opportunities and developmentally appropriate experiences for exploration, creativity, discovery, and achievement.  A strong emphasis is placed on fostering cooperative play and promoting positive group interaction.  We encourage respect for individual capabilities, talents, and cultural diversity and values.  Our staff recognizes the uniqueness of each child, and strives to provide an opportunity for each child to explore new pastimes and ideas in a safe, creative and supportive environment.

Transportation to the Extended Day program in the morning and from the program at the close of the day is the responsibility of the parents.

All registration, tuition and business matters are handled through the Acton - Boxborough Community Education office. Monthly tuition fees are based on the total cost of operating the Extended Day program for 180 school days per year, divided by 10 months and the number of days attended per week. A non -refundable one month’s tuition is paid by August 1st or upon registration if after August 1st and a registration fee 
is required for each child.
