Parenting Classes

Welcome to The Elaine & Gerald Wolpe Parenting Center

There’s no better place to begin a child’s life of learning than in The Elaine & Gerald Wolpe Parenting Center. Our parent and me classes are designed to grow with you and your child. With classes ranging from newborns – 2-year-olds, your child will receive a gentle introduction to many milestones, building a foundation for lifelong learning. Together, we encourage and cultivate your child’s emerging personality, natural curiosity, and unique potential. Enjoy nurturing programs including music, grandparent, and Shabbat classes with your little learners.  

The Parenting Center also keeps you up-to-date on the latest child development and neuroscience research, through classes taught by expert faculty members and visiting professionals. Perhaps best of all, you join a community of parents who help raise each other’s children, not only in their earliest days but for years to come.

Not only is the new space warm, welcoming, and appropriately stimulating for babies at various developmental stages, it also enabled me to connect with the most wonderful group of parents who are now continuing into the preschool together.
