Enrichment Classes

at the Child Development Center


Because of our location, facility and Staff, many of the enrichment “extras” are included with your tuition, including a weekly swim lesson with an American Red Cross-Certified Instructor in our indoor and outdoor pools, a weekly gym class, plus a weekly music lesson led by experienced Staff.

In addition, the Child Development Center at The J offers a variety of outstanding optional enrichment opportunities that are both affordably priced and “one-stop.” Think about it...your child will not only be treated to the highest-quality supplemental activities, your family will have the gift of more free time in the evenings, as we’ve virtually eliminated the time-eating hassles of your needing to transport your child to dance class, music lessons, sports and more.

Available enrichment classes include:


Green Thumb Club with Shannon:

Ages 3 - 5 | Sign your gardener up for this class and they will learn about flower gardens, vegetable gardens, caring for your garden, the bugs that inhabit gardens & much more.
