About our community

Hebrew for "home," Bayit brings together a diverse community of Jewish kids and families at a daily afterschool program that's a lot like camp -- welcoming, convenient, and fun.


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.
