After-School Program

After-School Care that’s exceptional!

After-school means something cool for the kids who comes to Kids’ Place at the Weinstein JCC. For kids in grades K through 5, there’s always something interesting going on here!

Indoor and outdoor programming that engages, stimulates and keeps children active.

Gardening: Kids can dig in the dirt, plant, grow and taste organic and nutritious vegetables and plants in the Weinstein JCC Edible Schoolyard. Kids can also harvest vegetables and use them as they learn to cook in the Kids’ Place Kitchen.

Hit a Homerun: Score a touchdown and become an MVP in a variety of sports in our gym and outdoor playground.

Be Creative: Kids can also create masterpieces and unleash their artistic talents in our art room or learn coding or golf skills in some of our Enrichment classes, or go for a swim and down the slide in our recreation pools.

Program Details

Kids’ Place includes engaging programs, a daily snack, age-appropriate enrichment activities and a quite homework time.

When School Is Out: We offer full-day programming on School’s Out days too, including Winter and Spring breaks.

When School is In: Transportation is provided from Henrico County and Richmond City schools, as well as some area private schools. We pride ourselves on a low child-to-counselor ratio (9:1), a dedicated and caring, professional staff, and serving the needs of all children.
