ABOUT

 

Open M-F from 7am to 6pm, JBU is a school-aged facility and program that provides before and after-school care for children aged 4-11. We offer a high-quality alternative to center-based care. Care is provided in a safe, healthy, nurturing environment that promotes children's academic and social development.



JBU is a licensed, insured, and Alabama-certified program that provides a home-away-from-home for children in families with busy schedules. JBU plans activities for children and families that supplement home time, which seeks to fill the gap between school and home on busy days and nights.


At JBU, parents will find a balance of active play and quiet activities, as well as outdoor play. Activities and experiences that support learning such as arts/crafts, homework stations, tutoring, supervised outdoor activities, table/floor games, and life skills will be offered.

Child Safety

 

JBU will make every effort to ensure our facility is clean and sanitized to protect against infectious viruses and diseases such as COVID-19.  Staff and children will be trained to adhere to proper cleaning and hand-washing routines to the utmost extent possible. Additionally, JBU has established the following precautions to help ensure your child’s safety:
 

  • No child will ever be left alone or unsupervised

  • Emergency exit plans are posted in each room

  • Monthly fire drills are held, during which staff members lead children to the nearest fire exit and take attendance

  • Tornado drills are held in season

  • During times of emergency, all staff will remain at JBU until the danger has passed

  • Staff members have immediate access to a telephone in case of an emergency

  • Each staff member is familiar with emergency evacuation plans for weather and fire alerts.  Procedures for these
    events are posted in the class room.

  • All staff are certified in CPR and First Aid

  • Each child participant enrolled at JBU must agree to and sign a liability waiver.
