OVERVIEW

The John M. Barry Boys & Girls Club of Newton is here for your family during the Covid-19 Pandemic.  We are pleased to offer an Out-of- School Time Program that will augment what Newton Public School’s is able to offer while providing wrap around childcare for elementary and middle school students to give working parents options during this difficult time.  The program begins with full day coverage available for as long as it is required.  Once hybrid learning starts, the program provides two half days and three full days of coverage that will match up with your child's school schedule.  Full day coverage is available for those who select the full remote option.  To see what the Club looks like, you can take a virtual tour by clicking HERE.

 

During Summer 2020 we provided 9 weeks of high quality childcare under full Covid-19 precautions.  We also upgraded the WIFI throughout our facility to the level required to facilitate online learning for students.

We are pleased to be able to offer remote learning at the Club and to provide a full day of activities to engage your child during out-of-School time while always putting the HEALTH and SAFETY of the children and staff first.

SAFETY

Safety is the number one priority of The John M Barry Boys & Girls Club of Newton, and we continue to do everything possible to keep children, our staff, and volunteers protected from the COVID-19 virus. We follow EEC and CDC guidelines and regulations including limitations on group size, vehicular transport, and activities.  

Every day parents attest online to their child’s good health before arriving at the Club. With drop off times staggered, upon arrival qualified admitting staff members, in full PPE, take a temperature check and ensure a child has his/her mask on. The child(ren) is/are then escorted into the building to join their same everyday group and same everyday staff. While maintaining social distancing with masks on, hand washing takes place throughout the day always with staff supervision.  Children who have been in contact with someone exhibiting symptoms and those with a temperature of greater than 100 degrees may not attend.

To limit potential for exposure to Covid 19, children must attend the program for the full day.  Late drop offs and early pick ups require deviation from established safety routines and cannot be accommodated.  Space is limited.  We are unable to provide discounts for partial week schedules or for students who are granted additional learning time in school.
