NJ Centers Open for Remote Learning Support During School Hours
Hundreds of New Jersey schools are opening with online classes only this fall, leaving working parents looking for a childcare solution during school hours. A number of community centers and organizations, such as some YMCA and JCC locations, have stepped into the void, offering childcare that also supports the kids' local distance learning programs. A number of sports complexes and children's gyms in New Jersey are also opening up their cavernous spaces for remote learning support, pods, and aftercare.
If you need to go work, or just need support during your child's normal school day, these centers might be a good option. Find more classes for kids at our online Back to School Fair or in the NJ Classes Directory.
Most request that students bring their school-issued devices and other gear, such as Chromebooks and headphones. Their staff will then support students as they go through their online school day. Some programs offer other types of enrichment and certainly the kids will enjoy some time with peers, too. Read on to find one of these distance learning support centers in your area, and remember, even as many of these slots are going fast, it doesn't hurt to get on the waitlist now.
