Renovation Updates
The Edlavitch DCJCC is planning a major renovation of our building, beginning in the fall of 2018, with completion by September of 2019.  The renovation will enhance the Center as a whole and will bring some very exciting changes and improvements to our early childhood programs.  During the renovation period, our regular building will be closed and we will be running some Parenting Center classes at the Foundry Church across the street, at the corner of 16th and P. 

Unfortunately, we will only be able to run classes on Tuesday and Thursday mornings during the renovation, so while we will still be offering some of our most popular music classes, most of our programming will be on hiatus for the 2018-19 school year.  We look forward to bringing back Power Tots Gymnastics, Super Soccer Stars, Getting Ready for Preschool, Itsy Bitsy Yoga, Art for Tots, Pre-Ballet, Zumbini, and the rest of our great classes in September 2019!

 
General Information:
•    We do not accept walk-in registrations—a child must be registered before attending the class. All prices include the non-refundable $2 processing fee. If you encounter a problem with our online registration system, please email the Director of the Parenting Center at mszubin@edcjcc.org.
•    Please note that unless specifically designated as a "DROP-OFF CLASS," all classes require that children be accompanied by a caregiver at all times.  
•    If registering siblings for the same class, please register both children separately.  The 10% sibling discount will be applied before your credit card is charged.
•    If a class listed below does not appear as an option in our online registration system, it means that the class is sold out. Email Miriam to be put on a waitlist for any sold out class.  There is frequently movement from the waitlist, so it's always worth sending the email!      

Checking on Your Enrollment and Financial Transactions
To see what you've already registered for and/or check financial transactions, follow these steps:
1. Log into your CampMinder Account
2. Choose "Financial Management."

4. Click "View Statement."  This will open up a PDF that lists all enrolled classes and all financial transactions for that calendar year.  You can adjust the year to see transactions from previous years.
