MBJCC After-School Program

The After-School Program at the MBJCC is a home-away-from-home for your Pre-Kindergarten through the 5th-grade student. The after-school program provides a safe, healthy, exciting and creative environment for children to unwind after a long day in school. You can feel confident knowing your children are in good hands when they arrive at the MBJCC.

Students travel from their elementary school in buses with seat belts, to the MBJCC. They begin their afternoon with a healthy snack followed by supervised homework time. Once done with their homework the students choose a daily rotating activity including:

Arts & Crafts • Playground • Sports • Cooking • Trivia • Science • Swimming on Fridays • Shabbat Programs • Judaic Activities • Holiday Celebrations
