After School Care at Jewish Day School

The SJCC has expanded its Kidstown before and after school care program to JDS. It’s a town just for kids in junior kindergarten through 8th grade.

The J partners with the Jewish Day School of Metropolitan Seattle for our Kidstown after school care program, as well as specific School’s Out Camps hosted at our Mercer Island campus. We’ve expanded our popular Kidstown before and after school program to the Jewish Day School of Metropolitan Seattle. Kidstown will be located in the BAH. A Kidstown staff member will meet kids in grades Junior K-2 after school and bring them to Kidstown.

Looking for something to do during school vacations? Try our School’s Out Camps held at our Mercer Island campus.

Reservations required 24 hours in advance; contact SJCC Youth and Family Program Coordinator Karli Schiller or call 206-388-0828 to reserve a spot.

To participate in Drop-In Kidstown, you can either purchase a pre-paid punch card for 15 or 30 hours, or pay the daily drop-in rate. The daily drop-in rate covers an entire session of Kidstown, whether your kids stay for 3 hours or 30 minutes.
