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


The Summer 2019 Session is Coming!

Our Summer 2019 session will run from June through early August.  Registration will open by the end of April.  If you’d like to receive an email when registration opens, please email Miriam to be added to the mailing list.  Please be aware that signing up for this mailing list means that you will receive periodic emails from the EDCJCC.  If you unsubscribe from the general mailing, you will not receive the email about registration. If you’ve taken a Parenting Center class or workshop before, or have received the notification email in the past, you are already automatically already on the mailing list.

This is a list of classes that will be offered in the Summer 2019 session.  All classes will meet at the Foundry Church at 16th and P.  We are excited to return to our renovated building, and to a full slate of classes, in September 2019!

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 some weekday morning during the renovation, so while we will still be offering some of our most popular music and movement classes, much of our programming will be on hiatus for the 2018-19 school year. We look forward to bringing back Power Tots Gymnastics on Sundays, Super Soccer Stars, Getting Ready for Preschool, Itsy Bitsy Yoga, Pre-Ballet, and the rest of our great classes in September 2019!
