Overview of JCrew

At JCrew, we create a safe and fun environment where children can develop friendships and explore a variety of social, recreational, and cultural activities. We offer homework help daily, electives and special events throughout the week. All electives and special events are included in the JCrew tuition. Some examples of the electives are: sports, cooking, art, games, swim time, indoor and outdoor play and more! Open communication is very important to us, each week you will receive an email with highlights from the week and information about upcoming events.
