Updated July 27, 2021

One simple philosophy guides the Children's Department: to provide safe programmed care for school-age children during out-of-school time. To reach this end, the Children's Department provides programmed care whenever schools are closed, including: state and national holidays, school conference closure days, half days and snow days.

The only time the Children's Department does not offer programmed care is on the occasion of Jewish and other predetermined holidays when the entire center is closed.

This year's After School Program and Before School Care will be much closer to a "normal" year even with the coronavirus pandemic. These programs are currently open to JCC members only. In addition, we'll continue to keep groups of children from intermingling in order to stop the spread.

Register your child today!
Register early to avoid any delays in starting. Please fully complete and submit the School Age Programs registration form along with a $36 non-refundable registration fee and a $50 deposit applied to the first month.
