Before & After School Care


Gesher is the Hebrew word for bridge. Our Gesher program serves as a bridge between school and home and between the individual and the community. Gesher provides informal educational opportunities in a structured framework and a safe environment.

We provide an amazing range of activities every day that engage children. We challenge kids at their own level and according to their interests. We emphasize important social skills like sharing and cooperation.

  • Fun, challenging, enriching activities - crafts, games, and more
  • Great facilities - gymnasium, indoor PlayGym, playgrounds, tennis courts, outdoor playing fields, and a swimming pool.  Read more...
  • Take the bus from school - Brighton and Rush-Henrietta School Districts bus to the JCC.
  • Judaism is alive here - Jewish holiday activities and Oneg Shabbat each Friday in a culturally
    diverse setting.
  • Well-trained, experienced, loving staff
  • Kids Belong Here. Everything we do in Gesher is aimed at making children feel comfortable and accepted. They have their own interests, their own talents, and their own concerns, and so we give them a say in what we do and how we do it.
  • Families Come First. It can be tough to balance family, work and what often seems like a million commitments. We're here to help. Before and after school care, vacation programs, and enrichment and recreation programs make life a little simpler and a lot more enjoyable.
  • Keep Connected. Gesher programs get kids involved - thinking, playing, learning, exploring and creating. Programs and activities fill school's-out hours with valuable, enriching, fun experiences.
