School-Age Child Care
School-Age Child Care (SACC) is a year-round after-school program that emphasizes homework completion and educational development. SACC has assigned staff and provides an individualized experience to youth ages 5.9 to 12 with its own programming. In addition, SACC members receive access to Club programming in the six core areas in our state-of-the-art Club. SACC staff evaluate the educational and emotional needs of each enrolled child in order to provide individualized support. SACC is licensed by the Department of Early Education and Care and accepts daycare vouchers.

The Edgerley Family South Boston Club partners with the National Inclusion Project to implement Let’s ALL Play: Inclusion in Recreational Programs. The partnership allows children with disabilities to enjoy successful afterschool experiences in an inclusive setting.
The National Inclusion Project works to bridge the gap between young people with disabilities and the world around them by opening doors for all children to be included together, primarily achieved through recreational programs and training to make afterschool programs, summer camps and classroom activities inclusive for all children. Its Let’s ALL Play program is a research-validated national model funded by the Project that brings an inclusive recreational experience to children with disabilities by giving them the same experience as children without disabilities. All children come together to participate in typical recreational activities such as swimming, arts and crafts, community service, physical fitness and more.
The I AM IN Inclusion Initiative at the Edgerley Family South Boston Club supports this mission by creating a culture of acceptance in the Club which maximizes successful participation through an approach that accommodates needs of members while maintaining the fundamental nature of Club activities. I AM IN utilizes specialized support staff, who have experience working with youth who have disabilities, to provide support and reasonable accommodations.
