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. "2017" for November 2017 classes or "2018" for January 2018 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.

Information about the Winter and Spring 2018 Sessions
Registration for our Winter and Spring 2018 Sessions will open soon after Thanksgiving.  Our Winter 2018 Session will run from January through late February/early March.  Our Spring 2018 Session will run from mid-March through May.  Once registration opens, you will be able to register for one or both sessions at the same time.  Please be aware that our Spring Session classes often full up early, since many people register for both Winter and Spring sessions at the same time.  Below is a quick list of the classes that we will be offering in the Winter and Spring sessions.  You can read full descriptions, including dates and prices, here.  Please note that we might still be adding a few classes to the Winter and Spring line-up. 

If you'd like to receive an email when registration opens, please email mszubin@edcjcc.org to request to be added to the mailing list.  Please be aware that signing up for this mailing list means that you will receive periodic emails from the EDCJCC.  If you unsubscribe from the general mailing, you will not receive the email about registration.  Also, if you've taken a Parenting Center class or workshop before, you are automatically already on the mailing list.
