    New Track: Club JCH (Jewish Culture & Hebrew)

    Welcome to the Club J Program
    Club-J is a Monday–Friday after school program that runs until 6:00 PM. Club J is a one-of-a-kind, licensed program that provides a wide range of activities that will engage children from transitional kindergarten through 12 years of age. The Club J program supports children in several educational components such as arts and humanities, physical activities and literacy, as well as a wide range of free elective classes that will keep every child learning and having fun.

    *Program structure is subject to change

    New Track: Club JCH (Jewish Culture & Hebrew)
    We are proud to launch our new Club JCH track! Club JCH is an afterschool experience that offers the best of several worlds, combining Jewish cultural exploration, Hebrew language instruction and a seemingly never-ending offering of hands-on activities, led by knowledgeable, caring and—most importantly—super fun teachers. The track will initially be offered for children entering K–3rd grades.

    Free Flow
    Free flow, as a release from the structured school day, is the first part of Club J when children arrive on campus. During free flow, children can select which area they want to be in. Rooms include the Art Studio, Puzzles/Board Game Room, STEAMS Room, Recreation Room and Outdoor Field.

    Enrichment Classes (Chugim)
    Club J offers many, FREE specialized enrichment classes to enhance your child's experience in our program. Taught by our Club J teachers, classes may include art, science, technology, engineering, cooking and sports. Some elective classes (Chugim) we have offered are hip hop and jazz dance, Mandarin and American Sign Language, a variety of art classes and sports such as basketball, soccer and flag football. These are just a few of the many Chugim offered at Club J. Three ten-week sessions of Chugim are offered each Club J year.

    Academic Support
    Here at Club J, one of our qualified teachers will be available to help and support your child with their schoolwork. We also work closely with each child's parent/teacher to understand how we can best support your child’s academic work.

    Physical Activities
    Club J offers an array of physical activities both inside and outside the classroom. Options include, but are not limited to, soccer, basketball, relay races, GAGA and outdoor play on our state-of-the-art outdoor Park and Pavilion.

    Social and Emotional Support
    We realize physical distancing can hinder children from many social and emotional development opportunities. Children in our program will interact with their classmates in an enriching setting with a variety of fun and creative games and activities. Club J offers many teacher-led activities during the week, and within their cohort groups, children will have the opportunity to participate in fun, high-energy classes.

    Jewish Cultural Programming
    Club J is guided by the Jewish values of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) and Tzedakah (charity). At Club J we learn and about the culture and celebrate the Jewish holidays. Each Friday we close the week with Shabbat.

    Express Pick-Up Service
    We are providing express pick-up service to all of our Club J families. In order to create proper distance during pick-up, Club J staff members will drop off students directly at their car.
