After-School Care Program: Kids Connection

Grades K–5 Available Monday-Friday After school-6 PM 

A fully licensed child-care center, Kids Connection after-school care program provides trained staff and a supportive environment, perfect for developing friendships and building self-esteem. Kids enjoy everything the JCC has to offer, from the state-of-the-art playground and large gymnasium to the lush grounds and outdoor fields. Each day, kids enjoy healthy snacks and participate in athletics, crafts, homework time and more! During school-free days (like teacher work days) and school holidays, the JCC offers full-day programming through our Yom Kef program and Break Camps (for an additional charge). Kids Connection offers transportation pick-up service from Davis, Doss (at Lucy Read), Highland Park and Hill Elementary schools.

No child will be admitted to Kids Connection until all forms are completely filled out, signed and submitted. These forms are important and some are required by the Department of Protective and Regulatory Services, our licensing organization. If information changes during the year, such as work phone numbers or emergency names, it is imperative that we be notified.

The Physician's Examination Form will need to be completed by a physician and accompanied by a copy of your child(ren)'s immunization records. We do not accept immunization waivers, so in order for your child(ren) to attend Kids Connection, all immunizations must be up to date and in compliance with Texas State Child Care Licensing Requirements. 

If you have submitted your new paperwork packet for JCamps 2018 you do not need to re-submit for Kids Connection. The last page of the Parent Handbook still needs to be signed and returned.

Please note that any child in the program must be part of an active FAMILY membership with the JCC before starting the program. For more information about JCC membership, click HERE.
