Savor this special time in your child’s life while connecting with other parents of young babies at Baby and Me, a morning class for children ages three-12 months. ECC Director Miriam Kalmar and guest experts will facilitate discussions on various topics relating to parenting and child development while you and and your baby will have an opportunity to engage with interesting materials. Following our time together, we invite you and your baby to visit our beautiful sanctuary and join the Early Childhood Center students at our Shabbat singalong.

Class schedule and registration fees TBA.



Experience the joy of stories with our special Baby Buds Book Club for children three to 12 months. An experienced early childhood educator will share stories with you and your baby through various methods including books, puppets, and songs. Experience our lovely children's library and have the ability to check out a book each week to enjoy at home.
