The Soref JCC has provided safe and nurturing afterschool programs for over 30 years. Today we serve over 1,000 children throughout the Broward County School District and at our JCC facilities located in Plantation and Coral Springs. We have two great locations in Coral Springs; Alvin S. Gross Activity Center adjacent to Coral Square Mall and Heron Lakes Family Center located on Coral Ridge Drive just south of the Sawgrass Expressway. 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.
The JCC provides an educational, fun-filled, quality program at an affordable price. Children receive quality academic and recreational programming during afterschool time. We follow a daily schedule of developmentally appropriate activities including homework assistance, computers, reading, math and science components, music, organized sports, outside play, indoor games, arts and crafts, dance, and more. Homework assistance is provided in a quiet location free of distractions. We also serve a nutritional snack for your child each day!
The JCC is proud to partner with Children's Services Council of Broward County for funding to help many Broward County families in need. The JCC also provides scholarships for families in crisis. Please contact us for further information.
