A social destination for NEW parents and seasoned parents alike. Our J Baby programming focuses on nurturing relationships, creating friendships, strengthening the bond between parent and baby, and fosters NEW parents’ growth, knowledge, and wellness. Get comfy, socialize, and learn with us!

Philosophy & Mission: J Baby was created to serve as a positive space for parents to have #realparenting moments. Through our programming, we hope to help new parents connect and build a broader social support network. We know that building connections to the outside world is so important for new parents who can easily be overwhelmed balancing work, parenting, and mountains of laundry. Creating a safe community that embraces parents as they are is incredibly important to us. The sleep-deprived, cranky, and fussy are always welcome (babies too)!

Babies & Bagels
FREE monthly social gatherings

Babies & Bagels is a monthly series for moms and their babies ages newborn through 12 months. Each session has a little education, some bagels, and then time to make new friends and bond with other parents. Bring your baby, boppy, blanket, bottle, or booby – whatever you need to be comfortable! There is no charge, but an RSVP is requested. New session dates coming soon! 

There are no upcoming events at this time.

Looking for something fun and engaging to do with your little one while also having the chance to connect with other parents? Come join us in our Parent and Me classes to connect and bond with your child and engage them in interactive music and the early stages of scientific exploration. See more information about specific classes below!

Parent and child will explore art, music, stories, and the Naturescape. Sensory exploration and being messy is part of each day while developing their minds and imaginations. They will make new friends and learn lifelong skills while in a safe and nurturing environment. Cynthia will guide and facilitate the children so that they have a smooth and positive transition into preschool.

Studies show that infants as young as a couple of months old are fascinated by surprises and have a natural curiosity to figure out what causes unexpected reactions. This class is designed to encourage you and your child to explore STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) materials and concepts together and use surprising provocations as a springboard to investigation. From block play, to rolling and ramps, to exploring colors and shapes, this class will engage you and your baby in the early stages of experimentation.

Members: $120
Non-members: $150

“I just wanted to tell you all how much I appreciate J Baby (and all of the wonderful programs at the J!). You all are amazing for coordinating such high-quality and important programs like the car seat safety event today. I have spent hours researching the best seats and watched a million install videos, and our seat was still installed incorrectly. I learned so much today. Thank you also for being so generous with your time and energy, and watching our little ones while we checked our seats. My son, Sam, had so much fun and I was so happy when he didn’t cry when I walked away! I can’t wait for him to start at the GECC in August.”
