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

Whether exploring science concepts, creating works of art, cooking, dancing, singing, or playing games, 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.

Program Policies and Procedures

Parent Handbook

A complete overview of our policies and procedures for the 2023-2024 school year is in our 2023-24 Janney+ Parent Handbook received upon registration in your Campsite Parent Dashboard.

Schedule and Dismissal

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. At 3:30 pm, once snack and check-in has been completed, students are collected by class instructors and escorted to their assigned classroom.

Classes run from 3:30 pm to 4:25 pm 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 call 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 in the Campsite system.

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

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 session classes upon registration. Students enrolled in annual JAC on the day of their enrichment class will receive a partial discount.

A 20% non-refundable deposit of the class tuition is due upon registration for yearly JEP programs. Remaining payments will be made by installments and scholarships are available by application on a needs basis. Families who choose to pay by installments are still required to pay for the yearly JEP classes. This is the only way we can guarantee continuity to all students in the program.

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 regular session 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.

Yearly JEP Programing Refund and Cancellation

There is a 20% non-refundable deposit at the time of registration. We ask that families who choose to enroll in a year long JEP program and/or music lesson commit to the full year or programming. 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, our 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.

Contact JEP

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.

🚫

In an effort to keep all students safe, Janney+ follows a nut-free policy for all programming.

This policy includes 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.

🎼

The Janney+ Enrichment Program is excited to offer music lessons!

Enrolling in a music lesson is 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 run for 30 minutes. Descriptions, lesson times, and costs for Music Lessons can be found here. If interested in enrolling your student in music lessons, email enrichment@janneyschool.org
