My Baby and Me

A Community of Young Families

My Baby and Me, based at the JCC’s Family Place in Squirrel Hill, runs social and educational activities for parents/caregivers with young children.

A variety of free drop-in groups, classes and special events designed for families with children age 4 and under are offered weekly.

My Baby and Me staff support new families in their transition to parenthood and our programs offer opportunities for parents and caregivers to interact with one another while their children play and explore.

Free drop-in programs as well as Kindermusik and other classes and events are offered for members; some programs also are open to the community.
