Kidstown: Before + After School Care

The J’s before and after school care program is a town just for kids in kindergarten to 5th grade.

Kidstown will be closed for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year, following Governor Inslee’s announcement that schools will remain closed this year.

Stay connected to J Kids programs online during this closure! See all our programs here. And join our J Kids Facebook group for more fun updates.

In Kidstown we believe 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:

  • NEW! Kids City, an area just for 3rd-5th graders! Available during peak hours.
  • Transportation: Buses from all four Mercer Island Elementary Schools pick kids up in the morning and drop them off in the afternoon.
  • Community: We welcome a community of students and counselors to come together and learn.
  • Flexibility: Our monthly scheduling gives parents the flexibility they need as after-school activities change through the school year.
  • Dedicated staff: Our counselors come from our community and make real connections with our low child-to-staff ratios.
  • 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: Games, sports, art, and curiosity. There are always new connections to be made, and fun to be had.
