Janney+ Enrichment

Janney Enrichment Logo

The Janney Enrichment Program (JEP) provides a fun, diverse, and affordable program of after-school classes for children from Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade.

Whether exploring science concepts with our Garden Guardians, creating works of art, cooking, dancing, and singing, or playing scrabble or chess, kids enrolled in JEP are engaged, learning, and having fun. Classes vary in content and approach to accommodate different learning styles and interests and offer content for a variety of ages and stages. Nearly all classes are multi-grade and allow kids to experiment, learn new skills, and develop the confidence to succeed inside and outside of the classroom.

Winter 2023 Enrichment Catalog. The Winter 2023 Enrichment Catalog is now live! There you can find all classes that will be offered this Winter. More classes will be added to the catalog by Friday, so be sure to check the catalog this upcoming weekend to see what classes we have added!! Registration for the Winter session will open Monday, November 21 at 8 PM.

The Janney+ Enrichment Program is excited to have music lessons return this upcoming school year! Enrolling in a music lesson will be a full year commitment. Students will have the opportunity each week to practice their craft in a one on one music lesson with their instructor. All lessons will run for 30 minutes. Descriptions, lesson times, and costs for Music Lessons this upcoming 2022-2023 school year can be found here! Music lessons for Piano, Voice, and Guitar/Ukelele will begin on September 12th. Music lessons for Beginner Drums will begin on September 26th. If you are interested in enrolling your student in one of these lessons, email enrichment@janneyschool.org.

In an effort to keep all students safe, Janney+ follows the regular school-day nut-free policy for all programming. This nut-free policy includes those products that have peanuts and tree nuts in the ingredients list. Check for nut products and by-products in foods sent to school. Products that list nuts in the ingredients are not permitted. Note this nut-free policy extends to all Janney+ camp days, including offsite field trips.

Our programs use the Campsite registration system. You may log in to your family’s Campsite account to register or view your current registrations, pay a balance, complete your children’s enrollment forms and change enrollment details, and update your family information. If needed, create your Campsite account using the link at the bottom of the login page.

Program Policies and Procedures

Parent Handbook. A complete overview of our policies and procedures for the 2021-2022 school year is in our 2022-23 Janney+ Parent Handbook received upon registration in your Campsite Parent Dashboard.

Health & Safety. Please take a few minutes to review our updated health and safety plan which can be found here.. In summary, Janney+ is adhering to the following guidelines, protocols, and safety measures to mitigate risk and safely return to play:

  • Protocols for reporting and isolation will be followed
  • Janney+ will continue to engage with local and state authorities and adhere to all guidelines recommended, making changes to the protocol, as needed
  • Most eating will be done outside
  • Classes will spend as much time as feasible outside
  • Janney+ will adhere to DCPS requirements surrounding vaccination for staff

Registration. For most classes, registrations are accepted on a first-come-first-served basis as classes are subject to minimum and maximum enrollment. Early registration is strongly encouraged. Once a class is filled to capacity, registrants will be placed on a waitlist. If space becomes available, registrants will be notified by email and should confirm their intent to enroll in the class. If no response is received by the requested time, space will be offered to the next person on the waitlist. Late registrations are accepted when space becomes available and with the permission of the instructor. JEP registration requests after the close of registration will be assessed a $25 late fee. If you would like to arrange a meeting with a class instructor at the end of a JEP session, please contact the JEP Director and she will coordinate this with the instructor.

Tuition Reduction. We are able to provide one scholarship per child per semester, subject to availability. Please contact PlusED@janneyschool.org to request a tuition reduction.

Payment. Payment is due in full for all JEP classes upon registration. Students enrolled in annual JAC on the day of their enrichment class will receive a partial discount.

Refund and Cancellation. JEP reserves the right to cancel classes due to insufficient enrollment. In the event of cancellation, the JEP Director will notify families in advance and refund the entire course fee. If school or class is canceled due to inclement weather or other events, we will attempt to reschedule classes, but this is not guaranteed.

Refunds are given for registrations canceled before the second class meeting of the session, minus the 20% non-refundable deposit and $25 cancellation fee. There are no refunds for cancellations after the second JEP class. If your child is able to transfer into a different JEP class, rather than canceling altogether, there is no transfer or cancellation fee. At the discretion of the JEP Director, in the case of special circumstances, refunds may be granted or pro-rated for the classes already taken only if the vendor agrees to a full or partial refund. There are no refunds or make-ups for missed classes.

Music Refund and Cancellation. There is a 20% non-refundable deposit at the time of registration. All music lessons are a year long program and we ask parents and students to sign a contract outlining their commitment to the program at the start of the school year. The commitment is key in providing continuity and stability in the program, and will allow the student to progress over time. While we understand that things may change, out cancellation policy for music lessons is as follows:

  • Students registering for any music lesson will commit to attending the first five weeks of lessons before they withdraw.
  • Families may request to cancel their enrollment after five weeks. Please email enrichment@janneyschool.org
  • For all cancellations, a $25 cancellation fee is assessed. Refunds may be considered, at the discretion of the JEP director, if there is a waitlist. In these instances, the Enrichment program will refund the unused portion of class, minus the 20% non-refundable deposit and any classes use within one month of receipt of the written cancellation notice.

Behavioral Expectations. Students are expected to act in a manner appropriate for a school environment. Persistent behavioral issues will be addressed with parents and the school and could result in dismissal from the JEP session. In such cases, refunds are not provided.

Schedule. Students enrolled in JEP are released to the mulch playground after participating in the normal school day. Students in pre-kindergarten and kindergarten are escorted to the mulch playground by their classroom teacher or co-teacher while older students are sent directly to JEP from their daytime classroom. On the mulch playground, students are signed in and given a small snack that they will be able to eat during check-in.

Students are collected by class instructors and escorted to their assigned classroom at 3:30 PM when snack/check-in has been completed. Classes run from 3:30-4:25 p.m. at which time students are escorted to the field by the instructor for dismissal.

Dismissal will take place on the field beginning at 4:30 PM. Students transitioning to JAC will be picked up by their counselor from the field at 4:35 PM. 

Parents MUST sign out their students BEFORE picking them up. Please ensure that all pick-up persons are placed under the “Authorized Pick-Up” section on Campsite. If someone comes to pick up the student but is not on the “Authorized Pick-Up” list, we will be calling the parents to confirm the said person is able to pick up the student. 

Students who walk home by themselves without an adult may only do so if they are 10-years of age AND a parent has filled out the “Self-Dismissal form” for the student on in the Campsite system.

Remember to inform us if your child will not attend JEP and if someone other than an authorized person will pick up your student. All pick up changes should be emailed to:

Contact JEP. The JEP Director, Bri Guilherme, can be reached by email year-round at enrichment@janneyschool.org or by phone at 202-724-8950 during the school year.

Janney+ is a parent-run non-profit. Tax ID: 82-101-5792.
