We are a culturally diverse, mature, fun and down to earth group of parents of 0-5 yr olds, with a mission to provide fun adventures and great learning to our children and also provide support and build solid friendships for us adults and learn from each other. "It's not only children who grow. Parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can't tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it, myself. ~Joyce Maynard"

Our events can take place both indoors and outdoors, we organize fun art and craft activities, story time at the library, excursions to the zoo, picnics at the local parks and much more, and our play dates are educational and fun where the parent could be involved and are not necessarily planned around toys. We also recognize how intimidating attending a first meetup could be, but we’re very welcoming and new to this as well.

We do not allow gossip but enjoy a conversation; we do not tolerate negative criticism but accept beneficial advice, we do not spank but guide our children through positive discipline AND we’re all happy! So if you are happy too, fun, friendly and a gentle parent to children aged 0 to 5, and live in Hayward, San Leandro, Castro Valley, San Lorenzo, Oakland, Berkeley and neighboring areas, we welcome you to join and look forward to welcoming you in person at an upcoming meetup.

Note: Once you sign up, you will be required to attend a meetup at least once in the first 6 weeks.  If you have rsvp'd "yes" for a meetup and do not show up this will count toward a "no show.  After 4 "no shows" you will automatically be removed from the group. Many of our play dates have a limited amount of members who can attend and often a waitlist is made available in case someone cancels.  Please be mindful that by not showing up for a meetup you rsvp'd "yes" for, you might be taking away another member's spot. Please be courteous and keep your rsvp as current as possible.

Thank you :)
