Parenting Center

The Parenting Center provides families with the support, guidance, and enrichment needed to raise young children in the city. 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.
