KIDS CONNECTION

After-School Program

Grades K-5 | 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 large indoor spaces and a gymnasium to the lush grounds and outdoor fields! Each day, kids enjoy healthy snacks and participate in outside activities, crafts, homework time and more! During school-free days (like teacher workdays) and school holidays, the JCC offers full-day programming through our Yorn Kef program and Break Camps (for an additional charge).

The safety and health of our participants, families and staff is our number 1 priority. We have been open since July and have proven our ability to provide a safe and fun place for our children. Our facility has been and will continuously be cleaned, disinfected and sanitized. Our staff has undergone extensive training on best practices in preventing the spread of COVID-19. We continue to maintain high health and safety standards.

Yom Kef Break Camps

When school is out, the JCC is the place to be! Looking for something for your kids to do over winter and spring breaks and other school holidays? Be sure to check out our Yom Kef Break Camps. Your kids will love this “Day of Fun.”

We believe everyone should have access to participate in our community, regardless of financial need. Awards of financial assistance are made possible for community members by generous contributions to the Shalom Austin Annual Campaign. Financial aid is distributed based on availability of funds and eligibility of your household. If you would like to learn more about financial aid, please reach out to us at financialaid@shalomaustin.org.
