Parent & Child Group


Parents with young children are invited to participate in a series of weekly discussions intended to help them gain insight into their parenting choices, to foster independence and healthy separation, to promote understanding of their child’s unique temperament and to explore Jewish identity.

Children will participate in a stimulating structured playgroup, emphasizing social interaction. Led by experienced teachers, the activities will include enhancing music appreciation, arts and crafts, and celebrating Jewish holidays and traditions. Parents will have the opportunity to observe their children and learn from immediate unfolding situations. The group will provide a wonderful opportunity to connect with other parents and create lasting friendships. (Parent & Child Group is for children ages 2 years and older.)
