Infant Program @ the J
Led by Allison Blume
“Jplay classes are essential to a child’s development because they contribute to his or her cognitive, physical, social and emotional well-being. Our program also offers an ideal opportunity for parents to fully engage with their children in a safe, nurturing environment, strengthening the bond between them.” - Allison Blume
Jplay at the Kaiserman JCC provides an atmosphere of exploration, creativity and socialization for newborns through children ages 3 years old. Age-appropriate activities are led by Allison Blume, who has over 5 years of experience in childhood development programming. Each class is designed to stimulate children at every stage of their social, physical and cognitive development.
This is an integral program for the healthy emotional and physical development of infants and toddlers alike! Class structure includes themes, songs, physical activity, socialization and parent interaction.
