A Dynamic Jewish Early Childhood Center Serving Children Ages 6 Weeks to Entering Pre-K
Our Parent & Me program provides an opportunity for parents to come together with their infants and toddlers in a warm and friendly environment led by a qualified professional. Each class is uniquely designed to encourage multi-sensory experiences that stimulate emerging language skills, motor development, socialization, and bonding between parent and child. We offer a variety of classes ranging from an infant support class to a class dedicated to emerging toddlers to Tot Shabbat classes for infants and toddlers .

Weekly Jam Session

The BeatBuds weekly Jam Session is the perfect way to get parent and child feeling the beat and expressing themselves through music together. Each 50-minute class is designed to engage both parent and child through an original song catalog, some classics, and a taste of world music in an effort to make music a fun tool for self-expression. By providing all participants with real percussion instruments to play as well as using various rhythmic tools, interactivity is the ultimate goal. Both parent and child will move and groove and enjoy a special time each week.
