Temple Akiba ECC

Parent and Me Classes

Explore the Joys of Jewish Parenting


Our classes are the perfect place to begin your journey at Temple Akiba.

All classes include time for free play, snack, singing, art, Jewish theme activities, as well as opportunities for parents to connect with others in our community.

Our school is a proud participant of The First 36 Project, which was created to provide Parent & Me instructors with an exclusive professional development experience designed to amplify their ability to support parents as they build strong, meaningful bonds with their children. Fellows gain access to curriculum modules that integrate child development theory with cutting-edge neuroscience research related to children ages birth to 3.
