    MoEd DC!  

    MoEd DC is an exciting new aftercare program at the DCJCC. Created in partnership with MoEd, a Jewish educational after-school program currently operating in Maryland, MoEd DC will offer an easy way for busy families, with children from PK4 to 3rd Grade, to introduce their children to Hebrew and Jewish learning.

    The core program is focused on three “Content Days” which includes Hebrew study through immersion and Judaics balanced with play and homework time. Snack will be provided every day. Content Days will be Monday, Wednesday and Thursdays.

    MoEd DC also offers optional “Enrichment Days” on Tuesdays and Fridays. Enrichment classes may include: swimming, musical theater, karate, LEGO engineering, soccer, yoga, Zumba and more.  Also, 3 year old siblings of MoED DC students will be eligible to attend DCJCC afterschool on all days.

    Tuition Schedule:

    3-day program (Content Days)                                     $ 3,900*

    4-day program (Content Days + one Enrichment Day)    $ 4,750*

    5-day program (Content Days + two Enrichment Days)   $ 5,400*

    We are asking that all families sign up by June 15 so that we can plan accordingly.

    The program will be available until 6:00 pm every day (including Friday).  MoEd DC will not operate on Jewish holidays and some Federal holidays.  On DCPS and Charter School ‘No School Days’ there may be optional enrichment programming available at the DCJCC. Please note tuition does not include transportation. We are working to create an affordable, convenient transportation option for families, and more information will be provided at a later date.
