Before and After Care with the YMCA

We have partnered with the YMCA to provide after care for our students from 3:00pm until 6:00pm on Jahn's campus and before school care from 7-8am.  YMCA provides a safe place for students to interact with friends, complete homework, and to participate in social games, physical activities, and arts.  To register, please call (773) 248-3333 or pick up an application in the office with Margo.  This program is open to members and non-members and financial assistance is available.  For more information, please contact Emily Ellison at

Unicoi Art Studio: Unicoi Art Studio has been providing exceptional art activities for kids in Chicago since 1999. We were voted the best art classes in the city for 2008 and 2009, by the parents of Chicago (Nickelodeon’s Parents Picks Award). Unicoi’s mission is to “draw” out the imagination in every child, with projects designed to be informative, engaging and fun for children ages 3-15. We use premium quality artist materials, so at a young age the students experience rich colors, unusual textures and a variety of unique materials. Our teaching philosophy is for children to be able to use their creativity to explore the subjects that interest them and for our teachers to provide the safe and structured environment to support their exploration.
