Before + After School Care

The J’s before and after school care program is called Kidstown. It’s a town just for kids in pre-k to 5th grade.

Register now for the 2017-18 school year.

In Kidstown we believe that children thrive in a safe and engaging environment. Our dedicated staff connects with each child by encouraging high self-esteem, healthy lifestyles, and positive social interactions. There’s always something fun in Kidstown!

 

At Kidstown, you’ll find:

  • Community: We meet first as a community to share a snack and talk about our days.
  • Games and sports: Kids get to have fun and burn off their energy!
  • Homework help: Our counselors and staff assist with small group work and individualized instructions that allow children to learn and expand on the knowledge gained in the classroom.
  • Exploration: We encourage kids to learn and discover. From crafts and music to board games and science, there’s always something new to uncover.
  • Dedicated staff: Our low child-to-staff ratio allows our staff to make real connections with the kids and provide them with personal attention and guidance.
  • Transportation: Kidstown offers bus transportation from Mercer Island schools and the Jewish Day School.
