Parenting Center Classes for Children (newborns-4 years old) 

The Parenting Center provides families with the support and guidance 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 and fun bonding experiences for parents and other caregivers.

The Summer 2014 session will run from mid-June through early August.  Registration will open by early May; email Miriam to receive an email when registration opens

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


Because we share space with the DCJCC summer camp and because some of our teachers have other commitments in the summer, we will not be able to offer all of our usual classes this summer, and most of our classes are shifting to different days and times for the summer.  Art for Tots and KidSongs with Ms. Audrey will return in the fall! 
Below is a preliminary list of the classes that will be offered in the Summer session. 
Please note that this list is subject to change, as we are still in the process of confirming teacher and space availability.
