Mission Statement

Founded in 1878, Associated is New England's first child care and early education agency. Our staff, family child care providers and volunteers work together to support our mission: "To lead through experience, as educators and advocates in urban early education of children from birth, in partnership with their families and communities."

Description

We provide developmentally, culturally, and linguistically appropriate early education in nurturing and stimulating environments. we serve primarily working families of color from neighbourhoods including: cambridge, chelsea, chinatown, Dorchester, East Boston, Everett, Hyde park, Mattapan, Revere, Roslindale, Roxbury, Somerville, South Boston and The south end. Affordable early education is a critical resource for the families we serve. Over 70% of the parents we serve are single, 30% are teen parents, while 60% of the families earn less than $15,000 per year. In all our activities and collaborations, it is our goal to contribute our resources and experience to the collective efforts being made to improve early childhood care and education. we view our collaborations as continuing opportunities for learning and sharing - critical skills we strive to instill in all the children we educate and care for.
