MVPA is a nonprofit dedicated to supporting parents in the Mountain View area. We run a Meetup group, a closed Facebook group, and a Babysitting Co-op.

MVPA Meetup

On our Meetup site you can find fun park playdates, trips to museums and zoos, childhood development workshops, local events, and how to RSVP to our own seasonal socials, which benefit local, child-oriented charities. Anyone can post a Meetup. There is a 3-month free trial, and then a $5 annual due, which pays for our Meetup membership.

Facebook

Paid Meetup members get access to our closed Facebook page. We share lots of useful information, ranging from the latest Groupon deals to recommendations on pediatric dentists. Spontaneous playdates are also sometimes posted on Facebook, but not on Meetup.

Babysitting Co-op

MVPA runs a babysitting co-op, where approved members exchange babysitting credits for care. We also host a weekly "playschool," which is a fun, loosely structured playdate, for co-op members. This playschool alternates between houses and hosts, so that children are comfortable in a variety of settings and sitters.

For more information, sign up for our email listserv. We send out a monthly newsletter publicizing special events and news about our members. We will will use your email only for board approved communication. Join here: http://goo.gl/forms/yrArwPQOMX

We hope to see you soon! Please contact any of the organizers if you have any questions. 

Best,

Lynn Meyer - President MVPA
