The JED Program
Janney Extended Day provides students with a structured and stimulating environment during before-
and after-school hours. The morning program's hours are from 7:30 to 8:30. The afternoon program’s regular hours are from 3:15 to 6:00 p.m.,
with extended care available until 6:30 p.m.
for an additional fee.
The afternoon program offers both routine and choice: students
enjoy snack, afternoon meeting, and outdoor or indoor recreation with the same small group of students daily. JED students
can take advantage of the enrichment activities offered by Janney Elementary, complete their homework in a quiet classroom
staffed by Janney and JED employees, and enjoy structured game time within mixed-age small groups. JED also offers art experiences
for all age groups and the opportunity to play team sports in a relaxed environment. By offering choices within structure,
JED allows students to try new activities and broaden horizons while remaining safe and supervised.
What’s unique and wonderful about JED is that it offers students a chance
to interact and to forge relationships with caring adults in a non‑school setting. Many of the younger children love
getting to know and making friends with older kids they see every day at school. They also love JED’s field trips, holiday
parties, and special events – the annual JED Fashion and Talent Show is always a big hit!
All of the activities and events are guided by JED's core values, which are:
- Safe, affordable, dependable child care
- Respectful, relaxed, caring culture
- A broad range of stimulating activities that lets
kids be kids
- Fostering and extending the educational priorities of Janney
- Financial self-sufficiency
- Transparency in policies and finances
- Community- and child-focused
have found JED to be a wonderful place for our children. We are committed to enhancing and advancing the
program to exemplify these values and serve Janney's children well.
We hope you will consider
JED as an option for meeting your child care and after-school needs.
