Parenting Center

The Parenting Center provides families with the support, guidance, and enrichment needed to raise young children. Classes and programs are designed to meet the developmental and social needs of infants and toddlers (newborns through age 4) and to provide meaningful bonding and educational experiences for parents and other caregivers. 

We offer a wide variety of Sunday and weekday classes for children ages 0-4 and their caregivers, as well as periodic workshops and classes for parents and parents-to-be.
