Kids Connection is a before and after-school enrichment program at the Simon Family JCC that provides a safe, fun, and educational experience that complements Virginia Beach City Public Schools’ curriculum for children Pre-K* through 6th grade, helping your student grow, learn, and succeed in class.
We create a safe, caring, and fun place to work on school homework, burn off energy, and help children to form friendships through group games and sports activities in a diverse environment.
Standard daily drop in rates will apply for anyone that hasn’t already purchased a school days out package.
* For Pre-K children in the Virginia Beach Discovery Program
As a Kids Connection student, your child will participate in:
– Homework assistance with a counselor
Hours: Monday – Friday, 6:30 am to 6 pm
We also aim to help working parents and guardians in our community, so we also provide care for children who attend full-day kindergarten and Early Discoveries.
Transportation included to and from the following Virginia Beach Schools:
Arrowhead • Hebrew Academy • Indian Lakes • Kempsville • King’s Grant • Kingston • Malibu • Point O’ View (provide transportation) • Providence
Parent Drop Off is always welcome. Please contact Kids Connection to see how to add your school to our growing list.
Our parents speak:
“My child loves the program. She gets help with her homework, which would be mostly done by the time she comes home. She loves the games, playing in the gym, healthy snacks, swim lessons and craft projects!”
“I am very pleased with Kids Connection and the variety of activities that are offered. My son looks forward to coming, and he always seems happy there.”
“Kids Connection has been great so far, my daughter has been very happy and enjoys her time at Kids Connection. I appreciate the homework assistance!”
“The staff is very dedicated, and the place is spacious and clean throughout. It’s a pleasure to walk into the JCC.”
