J Days
We are excited to bring you our new fall program called “All Day at the J!”

“All Day at the J” is a program created to provide support to our families during this uncertain time.  For years, the JCC of Greater Pittsburgh has put on amazing summer camp programs and enriching after-school childcare opportunities.  This full-day program is an opportunity for a wonderful extension of that!  “All Day at the J” is a chance for students in grades K-6  to complete their online learning requirements with additional support while being able to engage in a full slate of activities to ensure that their mental, emotional and physical health are all being attended to while parents return to work.

Who: Children entering Kindergarten – 6th grade

When: August 31 – October 30 (9 weeks)

Where: JCC Squirrel Hill

Time: Monday – Friday, Hours TBD.  Program hours are still to be determined based on Pittsburgh Public Schools’ determination of their virtual school day start and end times. This will be a full day program with time included before and after school hours to try and accommodate parents’ work schedules and to allow for staggered arrival and dismissal times.

Cost: $2,095

Registration: We are pleased to invite you to reserve your child’s spot for the upcoming school year by filling out this FORM.
