Child & Caregiver Classes


For newborns through 4 years old, with caregivers

The Parenting Center provides families with the support, guidance, and enrichment needed to raise young children in the city. Classes are designed to meet the developmental and social needs of infants and toddlers (newborns through age 4) and to provide meaningful and fun bonding experiences for parents and other caregivers. LGBTQ and straight, couples and single parents, Jewish and non-Jewish — are families all warmly welcomed.

By registering for our classes, you agree to our policies regarding refunds, make-ups, safety, illness, and more.  Read them here.

Please note that unless specifically designated as a “drop-off class,” all classes require that children be accompanied by a caregiver at all time


Registration for our Winter and Spring 2019 Sessions will open soon after Thanksgiving.  Our Winter 2019 Session will run from January through early March.  Our Spring 2019 Session will run from mid-March through May.  Once registration opens, you will be able to register for one or both sessions at the same time.  Please be aware that our Spring Session classes often full up early, since many people register for both Winter and Spring sessions at the same time.

News about Our Renovation

The Edlavitch DCJCC is undergoing a major renovation of our building, beginning in the fall of 2018, with completion by summer 2019.  The renovation will enhance the Center as a whole and will bring some very exciting changes and improvements to our early childhood programs.  During the renovation period, our building will be closed and we will be running some Parenting Center classes at the Foundry Church across the street, at the corner of 16th and P.  Unfortunately, we will only be able to run classes on Tuesday and Thursday mornings during the renovation, so while we will still be offering some of our most popular music classes, most of our programming will be on hiatus for the 2018-19 school year. We look forward to bringing back Power Tots Gymnastics, Super Soccer Stars, Getting Ready for Preschool, Itsy Bitsy Yoga, Art for Tots, Pre-Ballet, Zumbini, and the rest of our great classes in September 2019!
