Central Tots

Welcome to Central Tots—Central Synagogue’s community for families with children from ages birth to 2 years old. We offer both enrollment-based and drop-in classes led by warm and experienced early childhood educators. Our classes are open to both members and non-members.

We hope that you will join our virtual community this spring for weekly classes, as well as our in-person summer offerings.


Spring 2021

Tots and their grown-ups are invited to join Central Tots virtual spring offerings, which begin the week of April 12, 2021. All classes are currently virtual, and are free of charge and open to the public.
