Your child is at the center. The sound of children laughing, playing, and learning is the heartbeat of JCC Harlem. We specialize in fun programming for kids from birth to 12 to get them moving, grooving, and growing.

Harlem Sprouts + Junior Sprouts

View Harlem Sprouts and Junior Sprouts programs

Harlem Sprouts (2-4 yrs)
Our early childhood separation program is your child’s first opportunity to independently participate in creating community. This two-hour experience uses an intentionally mixed-age model, with a focus on play-based learning that encourages exploration, curiosity, and self-discovery, and sets the stage for children to observe, connect, and learn from each other at varying developmental stages.

Junior Sprouts (16-24 mo)
Introduce your toddler to their first classroom experience with their grown-up right by their side! This one hour experience helps children socialize and explore through dramatic play, stories, circle time, movement, and art. This class is a great option for families who are not quite ready for our signature separation program, Harlem Sprouts, but would like a taste of it.


Children's Enrichment

We offer fun and learning throughout the day, from mornings for infants and toddlers to after school enrichment for kids up to age 12, ranging from art to music, dance, yoga, soccer, and more.


We are proud to be a community resource for parents and to provide support as your children develop and grow, from new parent groups to childrearing workshops and more. We are a space where parents can come together to form connections and community, while being nurtured by our team and partners.


Fun for the whole Family

We create joyful experiences for kids, parents, caregivers, and family to come together in community. From Sunday Fundays to weekends at our sister program, Camp Settoga, there are many ways for grown-ups and kids to learn and play together with us.

Camp Settoga
