Before & 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 Kids Space 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.

Kids Space (K-4th Grade) – The Elementary team at the JCC has been hard at work behind the scenes on Kidspace programmatic after-school activities and offerings for our K-5 learners this fall.  Stay tuned for an update on elementary after-school enrichment opportunities at the JCC!

Looking for a safe and exciting after-school program that will challenge your child to make his/her own choices and create longlasting friendships? Join the Kids Space family. Each day, children arrive to a snack, after which they have the opportunity to
engage in activities of their choosing. Kids Space children can enroll in enrichment classes, as well as participate in games, sports, crafts and activities led by experienced Kids Space staff and specialists. Additionally, staff is available for homework help and mentoring. Computers may be available for homework.

CAP (Children At Play – East Longmeadow) (K-5th Grade)
