Kids Connection registration is now open.

 After-School Care Program: Kids Connection

Grades K–5 Available Monday-Friday After school-6 PM

With a one-to-eight ratio of counselors to kids, Kids Connection after-school care program provides trained staff and a supportive environment, perfect for developing friendships and building self-esteem. Kids enjoy everything the J has to offer, from the state-of-the-art playground and swimming pool to the nature trails. Each day, kids enjoy healthy snacks and participate in sports, crafts, and more! Every month, Kids Connection focuses on an enriching theme such as Making Friends, Being Physically Active for a Lifetime, Appreciating Cultural Diversity, and Fire Safety. During school-free days (like teacher work days) and school holidays, Kids Connection offers full-day care through our Yom Kef program and Break Camps. The JCC offers transportation pick-up service from Davis, Doss, Gullett, Hill, and Highland elementary schools.

The following forms must be returned or uploaded to your account on-line:

1. Health and Immunization Form

2. Vaccination/Immunization Shot Records

3. Kids Connection Code of Conduct

4. Parent Handbook Acknowledgment (page 11)

5. Medication Authorization (when needed)

No child will be admitted to Kids Connection until all forms are completely filled out, signed and submitted. These forms are important and some are required by the Department of Protective and Regulatory Services, our licensing organization. If information changes during the year, such as work phone numbers or emergency names, it is imperative that we be notified.

The Health and Immunization Form will need to be completed by a physician and accompanied by a copy of your child(ren)'s immunization records. We do not accept immunization waivers, so in order for your child(ren) to attend Kids Connection, all immunizations must be up to date and in compliance with Texas State Child Care Licensing Requirements. 

If you have submitted your new paperwork packet for Summer Camp 2016, you do not need to re-submit for Kids Connection. The last page of the Parent Handbook still needs to be signed and returned.

Please note that any child in the program must be part of an active FAMILY membership with the JCC before starting the program. For more information about JCC membership, click HERE.
