This half-day program (11:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.) is for children attending morning public school kindergarten. The perfect complement to kindergarten, the JCC’s Kindergarten Wrap gives your child quality opportunities outside of his or her kindergarten class. Each year the students take a virtual trip around the globe. “Wrap Around the World” provides children with a multicultural experience while visiting many countries. Along the way, language, literacy, art, music and cooking are incorporated into the curriculum. It is truly a unique, fun and educational approach to learning. Included in the experience are two ten-week swim instruction sessions, a weekly Shabbat celebration and an art appreciation class. Transportation by bus to the program is available from all Scotch Plains elementary schools and Westfield’s Lincoln school. (Additional schools will be considered upon request.) All enrolled students are also picked up by bus during public school early dismissal days. Our Kindergarten Wrap program follows the vacation schedule of the Scotch Plains/Fanwood school district.
When the children arrive at the JCC, they participate in a fully supervised lunch/recess in the JCC's full-sized air-conditioned gymnasium. Children can bring their own dairy lunch (no meat permitted), or a daily cafe lunch can be purchased in advance. At 12:30 p.m., the children head to their classrooms.
