We are active moms of infants under the age of 2 years old. We meet regularly for playgroups such as infant/toddler-friendly crafts, music, picnics in the park, walks, etc. The intention for this group is for our babies to have fun being around other children their age as well as for moms to meet other moms in the area to offer support and encouragement to one another. As described, this group is only open to mothers.
It is important for us to cultivate a loving and safe environment for our babies while being strong, supportive role models for our growing children. And of course, have a ton of fun exploring the world and building friendships!<br>
Members (Mama Bears) are required to maintain the loving and safe environment we have cultivated at our playgroups by being positive, drama free and offering encouragement to one another. Being a mom is difficult at times but with community we can get through it without dwelling on the negative.
Please keep in mind that the playgroup events are mainly (first) for our children and secondly, for us to connect with others. If you feel you need more "Mama Bear" support we encourage you to connect with a member outside of playgroup events or at a "Mama Bear's Night Out".
If we feel this expectation is not being met, we will kindly ask you to leave the group as this is extremely important to us.
Mama Bears are expected to attend at least one playgroup in the first 60 days and host one play group in the first 90 days to remain an active member. Ideas will be posted on the event page or you may tell Nicole your idea and she will post the event once it has been approved. The play date can be as simple as meeting at a park, going to story time at the library, getting together for a craft, etc. We will help you plan your event and are here to help. We love new fun ideas and encourage feedback from our members! :)
Mama Bears will also need to attend one playgroup per 60 days to remain an active member. This is to help maintain a safe environment for our children.
To ensue the safety of our environment non members are not welcome to play groups as guests unless approved beforehand. Play groups are only open to current members. If this rule is violated we will kindly ask you to leave the group. Dues:
The dues are $10 annually which help pay for the organizer's cost of allowing meetup.com to host the playgroup. Dues will be collected on the second play group you attend.
If you are unclear or have questions about our expectations or group description please contact the organizer, Nicole. We want to have fun together as we watch our babies grow and learn! :)
