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. In our home-like space, parents and children enjoy nurturing programs and parenting classes, including Parent-and-Me Music and Shoo Bop Shabbat. As children get older, the popular Toddler transition class eases them into a more preschool-style environment, so they are ready for our Early Childhood Center.

The Parenting Center also keeps parents 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, parents join a group of parents who help raise each other’s children, not only in their earliest days but also 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.
