There will be a $500 non-refundable deposit due with your registration. This $500 will be applied to your first bill. Once your registration has been confirmed, you will be sent additional paperwork that needs to be submitted prior to the first day of the program. This will include permission, medical, and waiver forms.  

Billing for our full day programs will take place on the 25th of each prior month, ie. 8/25 you will be billed for September, 9/25 you will be billed for October, etc.

Should you choose to withdraw from the program once it has begun, we ask for notice by the 20th of each prior month. If you are unable to let us know before the 20th of the month, please contact Jordan at jbravato@phillyjcc.com

Registration will be first come first served, as we will be unable to hold spots for any children who are not fully registered.

Due to group size restrictions, we can not accept registrations that are incomplete, including payment information. Also, please note that a completed form does not guarantee a space in the program. You will be contacted shortly after submitting your registration to let you know if we are able to accommodate your child(ren). 

We are excited to begin a new school year, and can't wait to show you all the fun things we have planned!
