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 workdays) 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), Gullett, Highland Park and Hill Elementary schools.
