The KidsTime program at the Kaiserman JCC is a comprehensive after-school program for children in grades K-5. You can feel confident knowing your children are in good hands when they arrive at the JCC for KidsTime.

Locally operated for over 30 years, KidsTime After-School Enrichment Program is the premier after-school care provider in Lower Merion! Our program is inquiry-based and child-driven, featuring daily clubs ranging from film and cooking to sports and art! Our club programming is based on the physical, social, and emotional development of children in grades kindergarten through fifth, with special attention paid to appropriate differentiation in the age and ability ranges of the children enrolled in the program. At KidsTime After-School Enrichment Program your children will have a chance to learn new things, make new friends from all over the district, and explore everything the JCC has to offer!

Our goal is to make sure that your children are in a safe, nurturing, and engaging environment where they always feel welcome!

A typical Kids Time day includes:
Transportation to the JCC from your child’s school, free play time, a healthy snack, supervised homework time, arts & crafts, organized sports as well as film, cooking, and book & games.

We are exploring the option of transportation home at the end of the day.  Please reach out to Matt Martin if you are interested.

Participating Schools:
Penn Wynne Elementary
Merion Elementary
Perelman Jewish Day School

The Kids Time program runs in conjunction with the Lower Merion School District schedule. Kids Time hours are 3:30-6pm, Monday – Friday. There are also a range of special day programs and vacation programs that are offered throughout the year.
