Parenting Center

The Parenting Center provides families with the support, guidance, and enrichment needed to raise young children in the city.  LGBTQ and straight, couples and single parents, Jewish and non-Jewish, biological and adoptive -- all families and all abilities all warmly welcomed.  Classes and programs are designed to meet the developmental and social needs of infants and toddlers (newborns through age 4), to create meaningful bonding experiences for caregivers, and to provide practical skills and solutions, advice, and community-building opportunities for parents and parents-to-be.

We offer workshops for busy parents, prenatal education, and a wide variety of Sunday and weekday classes for children ages 0-4 and their caregivers.

NEWS ABOUT OUR RENOVATION:
The Edlavitch DCJCC is planning a major renovation of our building, beginning in the fall of 2018, with completion by September of 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 entire building will be closed.  While our programming calendar will be more limited than usual, we will be running some child-and-caregiver classes at the Foundry Church across the street, at the corner of 16th and P, and we will be offering some parent workshops and family building programs in other locations around the neighborhood.
