We recommend that if you are unsure of your fall schedule, you still sign up now.
If you wait until later in the spring/early summer to sign up, your child could potentially be wait listed.
Please note: There is a $50 registration fee, per child, required at the time of registration.
We want to accommodate any changes in schedule or emergencies, so two FREE additional days will be built into every month for each child.
There will be a $40 fee (per child) for each day added beyond the two free days.
We want to be sure that we provide coverage when school calendars call for half days. If your child is not scheduled at After Care at the J on a public school half day, no problem...he or she can certainly attend.
There will be an additional fee as follows:
$60 if your child attends until 6:00 p.m.
$35 if your child attends until 4:30 p.m.
A $50 non-refundable deposit will be required at the time of registration.
Flexible scheduling on a month-to-month basis will be on a case-by-case basis.
We also offer weekly safe and reliable transportation to Hebrew school (Temple Sholom, Temple Emanu-El and Congregation Beth Israel). Choose the day you need and your child will arrive at the JCC, have a snack and then take a chaperoned bus to their Hebrew school.
JCC Vacation Days are a great way for your preschooler, elementary or middle school to spend the day during school vacations. Our programs are open when school is closed (with the exception of major Jewish holidays). We offer sports, art, science, specialties and so many more activities right at our JCC facility which includes a full-sized gymnasium, indoor pool, art studio and Early Childhood classrooms. JCC students enrolled in our preschool, kindergarten and After School at the J receive JCC member rates. After School at the J participants may stay until 6:00 p.m. at no additional charge. Vacation Day programs for ages 2 through 4 are from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. or 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. and kindergarten - 6th graders go from 9:00 a.m – 3:00 p.m.
