The Parenting Center provides families with the support, guidance, and enrichment needed to raise young children in the city. We offer a wide variety of Sunday and weekday classes for children ages 0-4 and their caregivers; Jewish family engagement programs for ages 0-10; and workshops for parents of all ages, parents-to-be, and folks who want to be parents.
LGBTQ and straight, couples and single parents, Jewish and non-Jewish, biological and adoptive, people of all ethnicities, races, and abilities – all families are warmly welcomed!
