Baby & Toddler Classes

We offer several Baby & Toddler classes here at the Weinstein JCC to support new families in your transition to parenthood and to provide a wonderful opportunity to bond with your little one.

Our classes provide a variety of activities for every parent, caregiver and child. Programs are available for children, birth through two years of age, and are a wonderful way for an adult and his/her child to experience music and art, and to play in a safe and engaging environment. It is often the first social experience for your child and a terrific way for parents and caregivers to meet other families in the community.
Our Baby & Toddler classes include Great Beginnings, Music Together and Sign, Say and Play. To learn more and to register, go to our Activities Page.

CarryBean - Babywearing Fitness for Moms - NEW!

Richmond, Virginia’s first and only babywearing fitness class. This is a 40-minute scalable fitness class that includes cardio, strengthening, toning and stretching, all while wearing your infant or toddler in a baby carrier. The class provides a flexible solution to working out and simultaneously meeting your child’s needs.

Not only will you get a great workout, but your baby will also benefit while being worn during class:

  • Babies love movement, the cardio movement will help to calm them or even put them to sleep
  • Babies will learn to shift weight with you while you move, enhancing their motor skills
  • Babies will receive vestibular input which is key to development of body and spatial awareness

Moms must be cleared by their doctor to resume activity. Please bring your own carrier. This class is done with bare feet.


Mommy and Me Yoga - NEW!

Mommy & Me Yoga provides a comfortable, supportive environment where moms can meet other moms and create special bonding time with their babies. This class offers moms the opportunity to regain strength and muscle tone as well as alleviate neck, shoulder, and back pain through exploration of movement in yogic postures with their baby. Prior yoga experience is not necessary.


Great Beginnings

Great Beginnings is a playgroup for parents and children that provides a first-time group experience filled with recreational and educational activities. This is a wonderful introduction to the Weinstein JCC and all it has to offer! Sing, play, dance and explore with your child while both of you meet new friends.
