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 Infants + Young Children classes:

WE'RE BACK! The JCC is excited to announce that children's classes will return (both outdoors and in the building) this summer (starting June 13) and we are thrilled to be offering swim, sports, music and ballet! Our beloved coaches and instructors can't wait to see your children again. The JCC is taking precautions to make sure your child's program is safe, smooth, and enjoyable while complying with local, state, and federal requirements.

Please save the date for registration for fall classes, which begins: June 16-23 for members and June 23 to the public. Classes begin Sept 12.
