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.

Update on classes

The JCC is thrilled to be offering swim, sports, music, dance, and art! Our beloved coaches and instructors can't wait to see your children again.

Make a Friendly Connection with Your Family

At the JCC, we've repeatedly seen the value of connection for members of our community. Multiple rounds of phone calls from JCC volunteers and staff to our older adult community, in particular, has shown us how a little caring goes a VERY long way. This is true, pandemic or not. With that in mind, The Bert and Sandra Wasserman Center for Family Life and The Wechsler Center for Modern Aging encourage you to join us for an important initiative, Friendly Connections: Building Intergenerational Relationships, in which older adults will be paired with families like your own for regularly scheduled phone, Zoom or FaceTime, or email conversations. Please fill out this brief questionnaire designed to help us make the best matches possible. We are hoping that by doing this, we will be able to make mutually beneficial connections.
