The After-School Program of the JCC
Simply the best after-school environment for your child. Flexible, supervised, productive and fun, the JCC Kid's Connection is the program for you!
Serving children in grades K-8, Kid's Connection provides transportation and a warm, friendly and supportive environment on the grounds of the JCC. We pick up children from many elementary and middle schools in the Fairfield, Trumbull and Bridgeport areas.
Our program runs Monday through Friday, 3:00 - 6:00 p.m. Our staff welcomes participants with a daily smile and a snack in our large activity room. Utilizing several multi-purpose areas of the JCC, children can socialize with their friends, create an art project, play some board or computer games, and/or get a head start on their homework with our staff in an adjacent homework room.
Throughout the week, we plan various age-appropriate activities for the group, including use of our gymnasium, multi-purpose rooms and, weather permitting, our large outdoor areas.
In addition, a free swim is scheduled for Kid's Connection on Wednesdays and Fridays in our large indoor pool.
Come on in, meet our staff & tour our facilities!
We designed registration for Kid's Connection to be as flexible as possible. Therefore, you may select any combination of options, customizing a schedule that best suits your family's needs. We provide transportation from Fairfield, Trumbull and Bridgeport schools (including Hillel Academy) to the JCC, and we also offer transportation to local Hebrew Schools, if desired. Availability and pick-up times will vary, depending on registration. We also serve the JCC Kindergarten program and Ezra Academy (no transportation).
Please contact us for more information, to receive a Kid's Connection application packet and to register your child – enrollment is ongoing. Call Alison Lurie, Children & Family Program Director, at (203) 372-6567 ext. 128 or Alisonlurie@jccs.org.
Payment plans and financial assistance are available.
We look forward to meeting you and answering any questions you may have.
