Put the Cool in School-Age Care with Club J!
We here at Club J recognize the challenges many of you are facing when it comes to decision-making regarding your child's well-being. During these unusual times, we are all faced with uncertainty of what the school structure is going to be.
For the new 2020–21 Club J school year, the Club J program will be providing
the children full-day, full-week care and support for distance learning, beginning
on Monday, August 17. Our goal with Club J has always been to
offer a program that supports both kids' growth/development and parents'
schedules. Having gathered information, guidance and feedback, we have
made the decision to adjust our plans in a way that we expect will better meet
the needs of care for most of you, heading into the 2020–2021 school year.
When school does open for in-person classes,
we will adapt to continue to support you as best as possible, depending on each
school's schedule. We anticipate still being able to provide care to
families who want to continue with full-time care and families who need care on
the off days of a hybrid schedule.
The Club J program will operate every Monday through Friday, from 8:00 AM–3:00
PM, which should align with your child's virtual school schedule. Under the
current guidelines, Club J does not plan to offer extended mini-camps during
school breaks, such as winter and spring break. We will, however, still provide
full-day care on one-day closures, and for teacher in-service days.
Though we are still learning what the actual content of each day will involve,
our team will provide the space, structure, academic support and some of the
materials necessary (not including textbooks or laptops) to allow kids to
complete their schoolwork for the day. This being Club J, we will also embrace
any available time, outside of school obligations, to provide the fun, engaging
social/emotional type of learning that has made Club J so special in the past.
