Almost Home is back for the 2021 – 22 school year!

 

We are so excited to bring our afterschool childcare program Almost Home back and welcome your children back to the JCC!  Almost Home is the JCC’s after-school childcare program for children in the Irvington and Sleepy Hollow/Tarrytown school districts. Buses directly bring students to the Shames JCC for a supervised afternoon, including time for snack, homework, socialization, and a variety of indoor and outdoor activities.

Registration for Almost Home 2021-2022 is open!

 

This year, our simplified registration process gives all families a fair opportunity to access the program and to have a reasonable timeframe for the completion of detailed forms. We will be utilizing a two-step registration process, as described below. All materials must be fully completed and submitted no later than June 24, 2021. Please carefully read all of the information provided.

 

Registration Process

 

Step 1: You must complete and submit a Google Form. Spots will be held in the order that we receive submitted forms so please submit this ASAP. Your completion and submission of this Google form will auto-generate a timestamp which we will use to sequence the processing of registrations.

Once all information has been received, those who have secured a space will be charged an initial fee of $540 and will receive an email confirmation of their enrollment.

Program and Fees

 

Almost Home serves children in Kindergarten through and including 6th grade. Consistent with past practice, the JCC will accept children arriving by bus from their schools in the Irvington and/or Sleepy Hollow/Tarrytown school districts.

Almost Home will operate consistent with the academic calendars provided by the Irvington and Sleepy Hollow School Districts. Childcare is provided from the time your child’s bus arrives at the JCC through 6 PM. Further, Almost Home is available on days when there is a scheduled early dismissal or conference day in one or more of our school districts; coverage on these days is included in Almost Home fees. Please note that childcare on school holidays (e.g., Veteran’s Day, Winter Break, etc.) which the JCC may offer, is not included in Almost Home fees.

Due to rapidly evolving CDC guidelines and Department of Health regulations, all registration and program information is subject to change. There is a possibility that we will be operating with requirements to maintain static groups and/or with reduced capacity. Therefore, at this time, the JCC will only process enrollments for 5 day per week participants.

The associated annual fee is $5,400; $540 is due at registration and subsequent installments of $540 are due on the first of each month from September 2021 through May 2022. To the extent that there is space in the program, as well as capacity to operate according to applicable guidance, the JCC will invite enrollment with other schedule options (e.g., 2 or 4 days per week).  As information evolves, we will further communicate.

If you have any questions regarding your child’s registration, please contact the JCC’s Program Operations Coordinator, Stacey Merchant at [email protected]. We are happy to assist.
