Makom Afterschool is an innovative, alternative Jewish after-school program for children in JK through Grade 4 with three locations (College/Spadina, Bathurst/St. Clair and Bloor/Bathurst). Children in the downtown core can attend their local neighbourhood public (or other) school — and also gain a high-quality Jewish education and a warm Jewish peer community.
Daily sessions and a small class size provide real continuity and growth opportunities for students while also meeting the after school childcare needs of working parents.
Founded by parents in 2011, Makom Afterschool has become a welcome alternative for Jewish and interfaith families looking for both after-care and a jumpstart on their children’s Jewish education. Our children love the program. Newcomers are welcomed into the Makom family and quickly integrated into the classroom.
Many families in Toronto either cannot afford day-school Jewish education or choose not to take this approach to their children’s learning path. We fill this gap.
