Archway Programs’ Just Kids is growing again! A leader in before and after school care, the program announced a partnership with Evesham School District for the new school year. The partnership encompasses the district’s six elementary schools and ensures a seamless student transition between school and childcare.
The Just Kids program has provided quality care for elementary students for over 36 years while operating out of their corporate offices in Atco, NJ. Just Kids currently provides services for fifteen school districts comprised of thirty-one schools. The program successfully serves over 1,200 children and employs more than 150 specially trained childcare professionals.
The Just Kids program is curriculum-driven and based on six pillars of care: gross motor, life skills, social and emotional, art/theater/music, homework club, and sensory/tech/engineering (STEM). The program participates in the Child Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), the New Jersey and Rutgers Subsidy programs, and several private assistance agencies. The children engage in AM activities that prepare them for the school day, while the PM program focuses on homework, educational crafts, and physical exercise.
Donnie Gamble, Just Kids Director, was excited by the new partnership, “Just Kids is thrilled to be chosen as the Before and After School Program to carry on the Evesham Childcare (ECC) legacy. With over 36 years of program experience, Just Kids will continue to provide exceptional childcare services to the Evesham families, allowing them to continue their busy lifestyles, knowing their children are safe while in our care.
By joining forces with Evesham District, we can offer families a complete educational experience, monitored socialization, and activities that foster a positive learning environment.”

- Almost four decades of professional childcare experience
- Trained staff with on-site leaders certified in CPR
- Homework help for students
- Curriculum that enhances lessons children are studying in class
- Activities tailored to meet your child’s needs based on age and academic level
