Are you ready for back to school season? Summer may be in full swing here in Western New York, but September will be here before you know it. And if you’re looking for a great after school program to send your children to this fall, we’ve got just the place. 

The Kids’ Place After School Program at the Jewish Community Center is one of the most comprehensive after-school programs for families with school-age children in Buffalo. 

Running daily from 2:30-6:00pm on school days, the program offers children the opportunity to make new friends, complete homework assignments, celebrate Shabbat every Friday, and explore their unique interests by participating in fun, engaging activities in a safe environment during the post-school, pre-dinner hours. 

And the best part? With less on your plate on a daily basis, you can spend more time being present with your family in the evenings instead of running around all night to get to different extracurricular activities. 

Ready to see what it’s all about? Check out the top 5 reasons your child will absolutely love the JCC’s Kids’ Place After School Program: 


1. Transportation Provided

Depending on your location and school district, transportation to the after school program may be already set up and ready to go for you. The Amherst program follows the Williamsville Central School District, while the downtown Buffalo program follows the Buffalo Public School District, which means your child can be bussed directly to one of the JCC’s two locations. 

Both programs also service additional area public, charter, and private schools— contact the JCC today for more information!

2. Enrichment Activities

The JCC’s Kids’ Place isn’t just your average everyday after-school program. Here, your child will be able to participate in a number of enrichment activities like dance, theater, music lessons, storm swim team, art workshops, kids fitness, and more. Starting this fall, there will also be a digital media & photography room, an esports arena (Amherst location), and a new makerspace for STEM students (Amherst location). 

You’d be hard-pressed to find another after-school program in the area that offers this many activities connected to the same program in the same place! 

3. Fantastic Staff

If you’ve ever visited the JCC before, you already know how top-notch their staff members are, and the after-school program is no different. Every day, staff members at the Kids’ Place will work closely with children to encourage and teach creativity, cooperation, and most importantly, fun! You can rest assured that your children will bond with counselors who truly care. 

Children with disabilities are also always welcome and included in all programs and services through the JCC’s Open Door Program, which offers an open door policy, clear email communications, and regular updates. Directors are also accessible in person or by email if you ever have any questions, comments, or concerns.


4. Affordability

In addition to offering an incredible amount of enrichment activities, the JCC’s Kids’ Place After School Program is also incredibly affordable for both JCC members and non-members alike. 

Fees are determined by how many days are needed, so head to the JCC website today for full information and details!

5. Flexible Scheduling

Whether you need after-school child care all 5 days of the week or only need 2-3 days during the week, the JCC’s after-school program is flexible and can cater to your family’s unique scheduling needs. With 1-5 day options during the hours of 2:30-6:00pm, the program is incredibly accessible no matter what you’ve got going on.
