PARENTING CENTER CLASSES
For newborns through 4 years old, with caregivers 

The Parenting Center provides families with the support, guidance, and enrichment needed to raise young children in the city. 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 -- are families all warmly welcomed.  We also welcome all abilities at the EDCJCC; please contact Miriam to discuss how we can accommodate your child in our programs. 

By registering for our classes, you agree to our policies regarding refunds, make-ups, safety, illness, and more.  Read them here.

Please note that unless specifically designated as a "drop-off class," all classes require that children be accompanied by a caregiver at all time   


Check Enrollment and Financial Transactions
To see what you've already registered for and/or check financial transactions, follow these steps:
1. Log into your CampMinder Account
2. Choose "Financial Management."
3. Be sure that the drop-down menu is set to the calendar year in which you took the classes (e.g. "2016" for November 2016 classes or "2017" for January 2017 classes)
4. Click "View Statement."  This will open up a PDF that lists all enrolled classes and all financial transactions for that calendar year.  You can adjust the year to see transactions from previous years. 

 

 

Fall 2017

Registration for Fall 2017 classes is now open!  This fall, our Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday morning classes will run in two sessions, Fall Session I in September-October and Fall Session II in November-December (with some Fall II classes starting in very late October).  Because of the Jewish holidays, our Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday classes will run in one longer session from September through December with several weeks skipped in late September/early October.  You may register for one or both sessions at a time. Please be aware that our Fall Session II classes often full up early, since many people register for both fall sessions at once. You can see full Fall class dates, descriptions, prices, and links to registration here.  Or if you know the classes you want, you can go straight to our registration system here. You can view a quick list arranged by age and arranged by day of the week below.
