About our community

Founded in Fall 2013, Evanston's Bayit brings together a diverse community of Jewish kids and families through a welcoming, convenient, fun and camp-like afterschool "home."


Bayit immerses children ages 4-10 in exploration of Jewish identity while simultaneously offering needed, high-quality afterschool childcare for busy families. 

In our structured yet free-choice learning environment, children bond through play while exploring the arts, spirituality and Hebrew.
