Kingston - School Report Question and Answers

Is there before and/or after-school daycare available? What are the costs?

There is before and after-care available. There are aunties who are willing to come to our house during end-of-term breaks from school. - Mar 2017


Most after-school activities are free-- that includes academic, homework help, music, art, and sports classes. There may have been a 1 USD charge per week for boy scouts and we paid about 100 dollars for a term of lego robotics, which meets once per week. Swim club is free also, and it is fantastic. If your kids are not good swimmers when they arrive in Jamaica, they will leave as excellent swimmers without you paying a dime. The coaches at Hillel also coach a club team and, if you are interested, you can join and not have to leave the school campus. For intensive club swimming, there is a charge: about 175 USD per term (3 months in a term). There are also charges for orchestra, pony club, French lessons, and sailing. - Jun 2016
