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

FALL 2014
Registration for our Fall 2014 classes is now open! Most of our fall classes will run in two 6-7 week fall sessions (Sept/Oct and Nov/Dec), and you can register for either or both sessions at this time. Because of the fall Jewish holidays, our Wednesday afternoon, Thursday, and Friday classes will run in one longer 10-week session, with a few weeks skipped for the holidays. Below is a list of fall classes and their current availability (all classes have open spots unless designated "sold out"). Email Miriam to get on the waitlist for any sold out class.
