Children's Department – School-Age Grades K–6

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.

The After School and Vacation Camp Programs at the Jewish Community Center have been developed with great variety in order to provide a broad base of educational and recreational components to the children. Programming areas include: homework help, traditional and alternative sports, group games and team building, outdoor leadership and environmental awareness, culture, health and wellness, passive gaming and computers, arts and crafts, drama, games and clubs.

After School Program offers more than a baby sitter and day care
