Club J Programs

At all Club J programs, we will continue to implement strict protocols to help keep everyone safe and healthy, while providing a stimulating, caring learning environment.  Given the fluidity due to COVID-19, programs have been re-imagined to meet the needs of our families.

 

 

Club J is a licensed program for elementary education students of the Tampa Jewish Community Centers & Federation. The program is offered at the Bryan Glazer Family JCC. Our program provides children from kindergarten through 5th grades an opportunity to have fun, learn new skills and to grow and develop in positive ways.

 

 

Club J provides a safe and nurturing environment where professional and experienced staff respect and value the diversity of each child. We offer excellent staff to children ratios, with every staff member having had a complete background check.

 

 

Due to the unique learning for the Fall of 2020, we are offering additional options for our families:

 

 

Club J School Day

Online learning?!?  Don't worry...the JCC has you covered with Club J School Day!

 

 

We have developed this program specifically for students in Grades K-5 that need supervision for the fall semester. You bring the online learning...we bring the fun!   There will be staff to support individual needs, and opportunities for small-group activities and brain-breaks throughout the day led by JCC program professionals. 

 

 

Given the fluidity due to COVID-19, programs have been re-imagined to meet the needs of our families.  We ensure physical distancing and we will continue our frequent sanitizing schedule on top of adhering to CDC guidance.  Club J School Day provides supervision for virtual school as well as enrichment activities (i.e. arts and sports) during the day.  Club J School Day provides children the benefits of supervision and socialization in a healthy and safe environment.  The program will be held Monday through Friday, 7:30am to 2:30pm, following the Hillsborough County Public Schools calendar.  Extended care until 6pm is available for an additional fee.

 

 

Monday through Friday, 7:30am to 2:30pm

Beginning August 24, 2020

The following are responses to frequently asked questions:

• Parents can choose from their school's eLearning, Hillsborough Virtual School, or Florida Virtual School Full-time.

• Parents must provide a laptop or other device and a set of headphones for each student attending.

• All Club J programs (afterschool and all day) will have reduced staff to child ratios.

• Children will wear masks when they are not socially distancing; however, accommodations will be made to offer times throughout the day to space out physically, including during homework and virtual school supervision.

• Masks will be worn by staff at all times.

• We will limit the spread of germs by avoiding combining different groups of children.  Students will be assigned to a "cohort" and they will remain together for the entire day.  Club J School Day students will not be combined with other cohorts and will not be combined with the Club J Afterschool students.

• We will offer ongoing enrollment in Club J School Day or Club J After School, as long as there is space available.

• We will be closed for the first week of August (3- 7) for cleaning, planning, and professional development.

• Withdrawal from the program requires 30-days written notice.
