KidZone at the J is an all-inclusive after-school program that includes transportation from school, supervision, and an afternoon of fun and friends. KidZone is also a terrific place for your child to unwind with lots of games and books, open playtime in our state-of-the-art gymnastics center and playground, and a game room to relax and be with friends. 

A snack is served each day, and staff will escort your child to and from the J’s after school activities, such as dance, art, gymnastics, theatre and tennis. 

We work closely with your child's school to coordinate a daily pickup from many elementary schools in the area. Registration will be on a first come first serve basis and bus space is limited. Please note that we must have a minimum number of students from a school in order to offer that bus route.
