Parent Center

The mission of our parent center is to provide the parenting community of Northern Manhattan the best and most current information on parenting, educational options for their child and parent self care. And most importantly to create a nurturing, caring community in which parents feel safe to share and reflect on the challenges and joys of parenting.

PREGNANT PAUSES

A prenatal class with Kathy Yates, a Guild certified Feldenkrais practitioner and with Tatjana Matano, a Montessori parent educator. This unique class will help women feel comfortable in their bodies throughout all stages of pregnancy. They will learn that by doing small, gentle movements, developed through the latest research in movement, they will be able to reduce discomfort, easily do everyday movements and learn to move efficiently and effectively through pregnancy and beyond. This will go a long way to prepare them for delivery.

The expectant mothers will also learn about infant development in the first crucial year, about challenges that lie ahead and what they need to know to prepare an optimal environment in their home for the new baby.
