Our Professional JCC Staff 

In accordance with the State of Florida, all afterschool employees must be at least 18 years old, a High School Graduate, clear a local and federal background check, complete a 40 hour training course and First Aid/CPR Certification. JCC staff members meet and/or exceed the required credentials by the School Board and Children and Family Services licensing departments. Many of the JCC staff employees are college-educated professionals. Certified teachers provide homework assistance for grades 1-5.


Our Reputation

Our JCC has provided safe and nurturing afterschool programs for over 30 years.  Last year we served over 1,000 children throughout the Broward County School District and at our JCC facilities located in Plantation and Coral Springs.  All programs are inclusionary and exceed the standards of Broward County School Board, Children's Services Council of Broward County and the Division of Children and Family Services.


Our Comprehensive Curriculum

Children receive quality academics - that piggyback the Ben Gamla curriculum -  and recreational programming during afterschool time. We follow a daily schedule of developmentally appropriate activities including student academic support for homework assistance, computers, reading, math and science components, organized sports, outside play, indoor games, arts and crafts, dance, and more. Homework assistance is provided in a quiet location free of distractions. Dinner is provided for all children attending our afterschool program on a full time basis.

You have the choice of enhancing your child's curriculum by participating throughout the school year in  a daily Judaic enrichment program (Shorashim). Other enrichments including music, sports, dance and many others are available based upon enrollment.  Please contact the JCC Afterschool Administration Department for more information.


Financial Assistance

Our JCC provides scholarships for qualifying families in need. Please ask for a scholarship financial assistance application.



Afterschool fees are based on 10 easy monthly payments plus a one time registration fee. Your child must be enrolled at the Broward County school that he/she needs aftercare, before registering for the JCC afterschool program. Payments are due by the 15th of each month prior to the month of attendance. Your first payment and registration must be made in person at the JCC main office at 6501 West Sunrise Boulevard, Plantation or by mail.
