Live, Learn, and Play at our Downtown Baltimore JCC (DBJCC)
Our downtown Parenting Center, located in the heart of Federal Hill, offers a colorful and welcoming indoor play space for your family. Your child will love exploring our playrooms, which feature age appropriate sensory and dramatic-play experiences, clean toys and lots of space for your little one to move around. Try our Kids & Caregiver classes, parent education workshops, special holiday programs and neighborhood networking events. You can even hold a birthday party at DBJCC!
The DBJCC is open to people of all faiths and backgrounds. Our mission is to engage professionals with young children living downtown, helping you to find fulfillment in urban Baltimore.
