Children + Families

At the JCC, we nurture families by cultivating experiences where children can thrive, parents can connect, and families can grow together. When you join us for prenatal programs, a swim in our pool with your baby, a music class with your toddler, a Tae Kwon Do class with your school-aged child, or community service with your teen, you will feel right at home. At the Bert and Sandra Wasserman Center for Family Life, we are here for your family at every age and at every stage.

Class Registration

Summer Registration for Virtual Programming is Now Open.

We know the fall is on everyone's mind, and we have our fingers crossed that a robust fall season lies ahead. With our building still closed, we have made the decision to postpone fall Family Life registration. We will inform you the moment it is rescheduled.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our building and are awaiting guidelines from the city and the state on how to do that as safely as possible. 

In the meantime, please don't hesitate to be in touch with any questions, and check out our daily virtual offerings (for kids and adults) here.

Helpful Tips: Handy advice prior to registration and on the day you register.
