Child & Caregiver Classes


For newborns through 4 years old, with caregivers

The Parenting Center’s Child and Caregiver 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, people of any color or ability — all families are warmly welcomed.


The schedule of Winter/Spring 2023 classes is below.  Our Winter 2023 Session has already started, but we still have space available in many great classes.  Check out the class options below; a prorated price will be applied based on how many weeks are remaining in the session.  Our Winter 2023 Session will run from January through February/early March and our Spring 2023 Session will run from mid-March through late May.  You may 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.

Below is our current list of Winter and Spring 2023 classes; you can expand each listing to see details about dates, times, prices, age requirements, and links to our registration system.

Please note that swim classes are run through our Aquatics Department and run on a different schedule; you can find information about them here.   

Unless otherwise noted, all classes meet in person, at our beautifully renovated building at 16th and Q Streets NW.


  • By registering for our classes, you agree to our policies regarding refunds, make-ups, safety, illness, and more.  Read them here.
  • When registering, select the “2023 Season” and then look for the “Parenting Center” category of programs. 
  • Please note that unless specifically designated as a “drop-off class,” all classes require that children be accompanied by a caregiver at all times.
  • We offer a 10% discount off the second child if two children from the same family are enrolled in the same class.
    This discount does not appear on the registration page, but it will be applied by our staff when the registration is processed.
