Having a baby is a time of great transition. Our expert instructors will help you navigate the journey with practical information, proven tips and lots of great ideas. They create a welcoming and non-judgmental class atmosphere, where you’ll have the opportunity to ask all your questions and connect with other new parents.
As your child grows, the JCC is there for you at every age. We have playgroups, child enrichment classes, swim lessons, teen activities and so much more!

What an amazing journey. The classes were a lifesaver and I’ve made lifelong friends.
