Vacation Day Program Fairfax, VA

When school is out, the J is the place to be!

clientuploads/BASE/BASE 5.jpgJoin us when school is out for teacher work days, holidays, and during inclement weather when area schools are delayed or closed! No need to find a last-minute babysitter or take a day off; we’ve got you covered!

Vacation Days run from 7:30am–6pm or on an early release day from the time school dismisses to 6pm. Unless otherwise noted, please send a dairy or meatless lunch with your child each day, along with sneakers, a swimsuit and towel, and weather appropriate attire. At the beginning of each new program year, we must have an updated Emergency Contact form on file in order for your child to participate in our programs. One form per child is required and is valid for the entire program year.
Registration for Vacation Day Programs is flexible and allows for you to choose which days you wish to send your children.

Fee per Vacation Day: $120/ $100 J member
Fee per early release/Gesher noon dismissal: $50/ $35 J member
