Before-School Care: AM BASE
Start the day off right! The AM BASE program is only available for students who attend Gesher Jewish Day School, Mantua, Wakefield Forest, Canterburry Woods or Fairhill elementary schools. Beginning at 7:30am each morning in the JCCNV lobby, your child can catch up with friends, play games and prepare for their school day. Students who attend Gesher Jewish Day School and Mantua Elementary School will be escorted to the appropriate bus stop by JCCNV staff. Students in Wakefield Forest, Canterburry Woods and Fairhill elementary schools will be driven to school on the JCCNV bus.
After-School Care: PM BASE
Make the most of every afternoon! The PM BASE program runs from the time the school dismisses until 6pm daily. Upon arrival from school, your child will be served a snack, comprised of two nutritional food groups; and will be able to choose from the following activities:
- A quiet homework room with staff on hand to assist
- Science, arts and crafts, and cooking projects
- Free creative play in either the Junior (grades K–2) or Senior (grades 3–6) BASE rooms stocked with age-appropriate toys, games and books
- Organized sports and team-building activities in our indoor gymnasium and outside on the playground
- Board games and foosball in our game room
- Free swim twice a week in the JCCNV’s 25-meter heated indoor pool
NEW! BASE for 6th, 7th, & 8th Graders!
This new program is specifically designed for our older students who require less supervision. Students in the program have the freedom to spend their afternoons in an area designated just for them. Staff will be in place to give one-on-one attention to these students as they unwind, play games, learn from each other and focus on their school work.
Transportation is Available!
Students who attend Mantua Elementary School and Gesher Jewish Day School can ride their designated school bus to the JCCNV. Contact your child’s school to arrange transportation. For a minimal fee, the JCCNV provides transportation from the following elementary schools: Camelot, Canterburry Woods, Daniels Run, Fairhill, Little Run, Mosby Woods, Olde Creek, and Stenwood.
Monthly Fee: $105/ $85 member
For children with special needs, the JCCNV is proud to offer a range of support and services to help all children enjoy all the fun and exciting activities that the BASE program has to offer. Please contact the Special Needs Department at (703) 537-3031 for more information.
Join us when school is out for teacher work days, holidays, and during inclement weather when area schools are delayed or closed! No need for you to find a last-minute babysitter or take a valued day off. Whether you need care for one day or the whole year, BASE is your place!
Vacation Day Program
BASE Vacation Days run from 7:30am–6pm. Remember to send your child with a dairy or meatless lunch, swimsuit and towel, and weather-appropriate attire. Please note that if you are new to the BASE program, we need to have an emergency contact and child profile form on hand.
