Come, play, learn—together!

For children ages 18–30 months, Side by Side at the Marin JCC is a small gathering of young families where your toddler can build social skills, develop friendships, and explore a preschool environment with their caregiver by their side. Together, your child and you will enjoy activities including music, arts and crafts, circle time, and free playtime in the company of other new learners and their caregivers.

Children play, paint, sing, and dance during Side by Side at the Osher Marin JCC.

The Side by Side program provides

  • An opportunity to build community in a child-centered, age-appropriate, social setting.
  • Play exploration, story time, music, and art activities.
  • Children will experience a preschool-like setting with the security of a caregiver by their side.

Because children thrive when given the opportunity for uninterrupted playtime, we have extended our class time to two hours twice a week, and we are offering a later-in-the-day option. We’ve also reinstated outdoor/gym time .

  • Tuesdays and Thursdays for two hours, from 9:30am to 11:30am.
  • Wednesdays Lunch Bunch class from 11am-12:30pm (right after JymBabies).

For Wednesdays, in lieu of snack time, please pack a lunch for your child (snacks are still be available).

Safety protocols
Children over age two and all adults must wear a properly fitted mask at all times.

For more info, please contact rweiss@marinjcc.org

JBabies play alongside their caregivers and other young children.
