What areas do you serve for before and after school care?

Upper Arlington currently, but we will be coming to your neighborhood soon!


Do you accept families from other communities for state and federal holidays?

We do! We have special adventures scheduled for Spring Break, Winter Break, Martin Luther King Day, President’s Day and for Calamity Days.


Do I have to live in UA to participate in your summer adventure day camp?

No! Our summer adventure day camp is open to all!


Do I need to be a member to participate in your adventures?

We offer a one-time try us out non-member price. After that we require everyone to be a member to participate.


What are the benefits of becoming a JEC member?

First, you will always have a spot for care on any day your child is not in school, including calamity days!
We will email, text and pass out information on upcoming days off from school. We will ask you if you need the care on the specific day. If you need it, you have it. If you do not need the care, your spot goes out to non-members.
We also offer several complimentary parent nights out per year. All you pay for is the adventure scheduled that evening
(Our adventures range from $10 – $25)

Discounts: We give the best prices for our Explorer members!
First positioning for summer adventure day camp, winter break & spring break.

How old do my kids need to be to participate in your before and after school club?

Emerging Kindergarteners and those fully potty trained through the 5th grade.


What happens if I pick up my child early from school on a day he/she is scheduled for After School Care?

Please notify us ASAP at 614-516-3325. If we don’t hear from you before 2pm when the bus shift departs to the schools and we arrive without knowledge, families will be charged a bus seat fee of $10. We regulate spots on our buses to accommodate all scheduled EXPLORERS needing to be picked up and even one less or one extra child, can cause our bus fleet/drivers to be uneven.

Checks, Visa, Mastercard, AMEX or bank to bank transfers, Venmo and PayPal.
