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 or Mantua, Wakefield Forest or Fairhill elementary schools. Beginning at 7:30 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 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 nutritious 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
In addition to the wide-range of activities, the BASE program also offers a variety of enrichment programs and classes. For an additional fee, your child can choose from sports, dance and swim classes, private music and tutoring lessons, group courses that include martial arts, yoga, drama, and more! All of our enrichment programs and classes are offered in-house, which means no extra driving for you! We’ll take care of escorting the children to and from each activity.

BASE Vacation Day Program
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 and take a valued day off. Whether you need care for one day or the whole year, BASE is your place!
BASE Vacation Days run from 7:30am–6pm. Don’t forget to send your child with a dairy or vegetarian-friendly lunch, swim suit and towel, and weather-appropriate attire. Remember that if you are new to the BASE program, we need to have an emergency contact and child profile form on hand!
Fee per vacation day: $100/ $80 JCCNV member
