2015 Parent Education
The Child and Parent Center at Hall-Mercer
The anti-helicopter vibe at this Penn-affiliated center has made it appealing to generations of city moms. While you sit on the floor in a circle (it’s okay to cry) with babies crawling about, experienced leaders host sessions like “Exploring Parenthood” and “Terrific Twos” and offer advice on sleeping, eating and more. Expect to make the friends you’ll keep for life.
