PJ OUR WAY: FOR TWEENS, 8.5-12.5 YEARS OLD

Program Description:

PJ Our Way is the next generation of PJ Library, offering books for kids 8.5-12.5. jkidphilly offers programming custom-made for this tween demographic, planning outings and activities that are geared toward their developmental stage and interests. Most PJ Our Way events are drop-off optional, meaning that parents are welcome to stay, but also may drop their tweens off for some independent fun. Parents who choose to stay are asked to find other arrangements for younger siblings so that the bigger kids have time to hang out on their own.
