JCA After School Programs

Within the Youth Services department at the JCA, we see ourselves as facilitators of each child’s development. It is our mission to provide a safe, structured and nurturing environment that encourages responsible behavior, respect for others and a positive outlook. We seek to develop a positive after school experience for your child so that they can better their future. Even when children are not in school, it is important to continue developing social, emotional, cognitive and physical skills, and promote character building. Our after school programs are here to help your child grow both mentally and physically with a well rounded curriculum of both aspects. Here at the JCA, our after school programs in Jacksonville, FL offer you peace of mind that your child is getting the best possible care and having fun at the same time! Getting the best care can be difficult, but the JCA ensures you that our after school programs are providing your child with great teachers and activities. We want to make sure each child receive the care and attention they need from their after school program. That’s why we take great strides to ensure our teachers are trained with the latest educational techniques and skills to be able to best help your child.
