JCC Family Membership required to participate.

After-school care demands continue to shift and change, and we recognize each family has their own specific needs. What hasn’t changed is parents wanting the freedom to finish their workday with peace of mind, knowing that their children are in a safe environment and are having fun. Enter, Kids Connection!

Kids Connection is dedicated to ensuring your student continues to have all the recreational, social, and cultural activities available to them in a supportive environment year-round. Whether you’ve joined us at JCamps each summer, taken ballet classes with Ballet Austin or gymnastics with Kim’s Gym, or participated in any of our other enrichment offerings, we’re honored that you entrust your children to us, and we are committed to continuing to create that safe and secure and fun environment.
