Today we serve hundreds of children throughout the Broward County School District and at our JCC facilities located in Plantation and Coral Springs. Our Heron Lakes Family Center is located in NW Coral Springs on Coral Ridge Drive just south of the Sawgrass Expressway and our Plantation campus is located on W. Sunrise Blvd. 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!
