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 confidence to succeed inside and outside of the classroom.
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 log in page.
The JEP class catalog is sent home with students in advance of open registration for each of the three sessions offered during the 2019-20 school year. It is also available online. To prepare for JEP session I registration, see the JEP Session III 2019-2020 Catalog and JEP Session III 2019-2020 Description of Classes for detailed information.

Parent Handbook. A complete reporting of our policies and procedures for the 2019-2020 school year is in our 2019-20 Janney Parent Handbook received upon registration in your Campsite Parent Dashboard.
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, the 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. Returning students for piano and drum lessons take enrollment priority to allow for continuity in instruction. 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.
JEP registration requests after the close of registration will be assessed a $25 late fee.
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.
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 cancelled due to inclement weather or other events, we will attempt to reschedule classes, but this is not guaranteed.
Refunds are given for registrations cancelled 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 cancelling 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.
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 cafeteria after participating in the normal school day. Students in pre-kindergarten and kindergarten are escorted to the cafeteria by their classroom teacher or paraprofessional while older students are sent unescorted directly to JEP from their classroom. In the cafeteria students are signed in by enrichment staff and are given a snack and water. Students are collected by class instructors and escorted to their assigned classroom in time for their 3:30p.m. JEP session. Classes run from 3:30-4:30p.m. at which time students are escorted to the cafeteria by the instructor.
If you are concerned that your older student is not capable of transitioning to the cafeteria unescorted for JEP check-in, please email email@example.com. Depending on the reason, this may result in determining a way to accommodate the student or the student being unable to participate in JEP.
It is very important that you let the JEP team know if your child will not attend a specific class so that we can keep track of all students. Please email schedule changes to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
Pick-up and Sign-out. JEP pick up is at 4:45. Please arrive closer to 4:45 to limit the amount of congestion in the hallway.
Children who have not been picked-up by 4:45p.m. will automatically be signed into JAC. When a child is signed into JAC from JEP, parents or legal guardians agree to the JAC terms and conditions laid out in that program, regardless of whether the child is already registered for JAC and may be required to complete JAC registration forms. Once a student is signed over to JAC, JEP is no longer responsible for the care of that student. Contact details for that student are made available to JAC staff.
Students who walk home by themselves without an adult may only do so if a note from a parent or guardian has been provided to the JEP Director or permission has been granted in the Campsite system.
Contact JEP. The JEP Director, Brianna Guilherme, can be reached by email year round at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 202-724-8950 during the school year.
