Kidstown

The J’s before and after school care program is 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: Buses from Mercer Island schools pick kids up from Kidstown in the morning and drop them off in the afternoon.

 

For more information, contact Jewish Life and Learning Professional Danniell Nadiv or call 206-829-2594.
Please note, if you decide to cancel your Kidstown enrollment for any reason, we require 30 days’ notice.
