Learn and grow with us

From the moment your baby is born our Early Childhood Parent Educators are here to help. We offer a variety of classes for parents and kids from birth to five years old. It’s a safe space to cry, laugh, vent! Come learn practical tips and tricks from parents who have been right where you are. Get advice from professional Parent Educators. Watch your children play and interact with other kids. And make some new “mom” and “dad” friends.

Built in 2012, the Early Childhood Family Center is a unique facility that houses a variety of programs for District residents from birth through adulthood. We offer classes for infants and toddlers, and their parents, preschool students, and adults working toward a GED or learning English.
