Parenting Center Programs at Kaplen JCC on the Palisades (Dedicated Email)

First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes the baby in the baby carriage. But omg, the baby has suddenly grown out of the baby carriage!

Lucky for you, the Infant & Toddler Center at Kaplen JCC on the Palisades is what comes next. Geared towards little ones as young as 6 months, all the way up to whopping 24 month-olds, there’s something to satisfy everyone – and (insert sigh of relief here) plenty of ways to keep you sane as well.

Designed to stimulate kiddos’ curiosity, development and engagement – as well as spark solid mom friendships – classes come in a variety of shapes and sizes: “Moovin and Groovin,” “Sunday Family Fun,” “Baby Ballet,” (ca-uute!), “Little Explorers,” “Mini-Scribblers,” “Water Babies & Parent/Toddler Swim,” “Tiny Tumblers,” “Little Maestros Music Classes,” plus awesome fitness classes for tot-toting moms such as “Stroll into Fitness,” “Bounce into Fitness,” and our personal favorite, “Momilates®.”

Sessions start the week of January 28th and go throughout the Winter. Costs are super reasonable, starting at $132.   And more good news, try infant & toddler classes for two semesters with no membership fee necessary.  Like ‘em? Join ‘em!  Register for nursery school and receive 50% off family membership dues to the JCC for one year with credit for any non-member fees paid during your first year in the Infant & Toddler Center.

Now we’re talking!

I'm looking for the best prenatal massage and pre-natal exercise classes in Bergen- any ideas? - Caroline G.

Hey Caroline,
There is nothing better than a good pre-natal massage and stretching sesh while you’re pregnant (especially towards the end of your term). Book an appointment at DeBeaute Day Spa in Montvale for one of their Pre-Natal Massages which helps relieve leg cramps and increases circulation.  For pre-natal fitness, try either Bump to Bump Maternity who offers pre-natal yoga classes in their Wyckoff location or MamaMukti who teaches classes at Destination Maternity in Paramus.  Feel good!  -Bergen Mama
