Childcare

Childcare is available for children pre-school through 5th grade. Children are welcome to attend any services with their families. Children younger than 6th grade must be in childcare or supervised by a responsible adult, and may not roam the synagogue unattended. Childcare is provided by our Camp Kee Tov staff and incorporates activities that reflect the themes of the High Holy Days.

Please note the following important childcare safety policies:

Check-in takes place in the BENS wing and begins 15 minutes before the start of each service and continues for 15 minutes after the service start time. After that time, children will be divided into two groups based on age/grade level.

During evening services older children will go to the youth lounge and during morning services will be taken to Live Oak Park; younger children will remain in the BENS wing and yard for both evening and morning services. Children will not be permitted to sign themselves out of childcare, or to move back and forth between childcare and the service, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Older children who arrive after the 30-minute check-in window must first be signed in by a parent or guardian with the childcare staff in the BENS wing before being walked by their parent or guardian to the youth lounge in the evenings or to Live Oak Park in the mornings.

Please note that we do not offer diaper changing services. Advance registration is required.

Infants and children under age two are welcome to play or rest in the Children’s Library with a parent or caregiver during services. The services will be audible in that room through our sound system.
