School Age Adventures


Welcome to School Age Adventures – before and after school care that is fun, safe, affordable and right in your neighborhood school! 

Who We Serve

The ALC School Age Adventures program provides before and after school care to elementary school children in the Nashua, Merrimack, Hudson, Litchfield, Hollis schools. The ALC also runs an after school program at Hudson Memorial Middle School. We strive to promote healthy social and academic development of children, while allowing parents to work knowing their children are safe and happy.

Program Highlights
  • Start time is 6:40 AM in all Nashua Schools, and 6:30 AM in all Merrimack, Hudson, Litchfield and Hollis Schools.
  • Breakfast is provided to all students attending the before school programs. Snacks are provided to all students attending our after school programs.
  • Our after school programs run from the close of the school day until 6:00 PM.
  • Our School Age Adventures programs operate on the same calendar as your School District, with coverage for delayed openings and scheduled early release days.  Our program is closed on days schools are closed.
  •  Our staff-to-child ratios exceed NH State childcare guidelines.
  • “Homework Club” supports academic achievement.
  • All children participate in developmentally appropriate indoor activities, outdoor activities, games, cooperative play and enrichment activities during our program hours.

How to Enroll

Enrollment begins during the first two weeks of May for the following school year. Please enroll your child early, as many programs fill up and may have a wait list. Completed enrollment packets should be sent along with a check made out to the Adult Learning Center at the address listed below.
