The Children's Center

The environment at the Children's Center is a supportive and child-centered. It is a safe place where children can grow and develop. The Center's schedule balances structured and free choice activities, indoor and outdoor time, and active and quiet time. Our Children's Center is open during the school year each afternoon from 3:00 to 5:30 p.m. The Center is open to James River students and the public (during the summer) through age 12. Afternoon care during the school year and the Summer Day Camp are state-licensed childcare. (Run separately from the Children's Center, morning care is also available each weekday from 7:30 until 8 a.m. during the school year for James River students only.)
Ms. Valerie Daigle runs the Center year-round. Feel free to contact her by email at daigle_v@jamesriverdayschool.org or fill out the form below to receive more information or summer application packet.

Campers will spend a fun-filled summer taking field trips to local destinations such as Amazement Square, FunQuest, and the movies (as feasible with pandemic restrictions).

Each day, children need to bring a lunch, morning and afternoon snacks, and drinks. Children will be supervised by our certified staff.
