Before- and After-School Programming

Join us at the J and beyond for exceptional child care, year-round!

The J has a long history of providing quality care for youth. We are excited to announce our Children at Play (CAP) program for 2021 for our K-5 East Longmeadow Schools, and we hope to offer our KidSpace program at the J by the end of July 2021.  In all of our programming, your child will experience Jewish values and culture because when you join the J, you join our family. We embrace families of all faiths.
