Who are we?
One of my favourite things about being part of this group is bumping into people you know every time you leave the house. Being an active member of the Mamas-and-Papas means you will be meeting other people who care about community and building relationships.
While our target area is "Downtown West" including Queen West, King West, Little Italy and Liberty Village, our membership also includes parents from Harbourfront, the Annex, the Beach and High Park! We meet regularly for friendship and interaction for our young children.
Some examples of our activities include:
Who can join the Mamas and the Papas?
- "Coffee playdates"/Home playdates/Park playdates/Playdates in parenting centres
- Lots of outings: ROM, Riverdale Farm, Toronto Islands, etc
- Walks and "Urban Hikes" - we enjoy exploring the city together!
- We entertain any excuse to eat! Our events include a Strawberry Social, lunch in Chinatown, potlucks at home
We welcome any parents who would like to
in our group events and help build relationships and community.
Who should not join the Mamas and the Papas?
Anyone who does not intend to participate on a regular basis.
Anyone who only wants to join to advertise their business.
Anyone who does not have a serious desire to cultivate lasting friendships for themselves as well as their children.
What are the requirements?
We ask that you:
Be an active member!
Please look at the messages and polls and respond accordingly. Volunteer to host playdates. Join our team of Assistant Organizers. The more you put into the group, the more you will benefit from it!
Keep our group safe!
We also require that you post a photo of you in your profile. Also, members who do not attend on any sort of regular basis are subject for removal. The safety of our group is our primary concern.
Please honour your "Yes" RSVP - our volunteers need to know how many to expect! Please remember to rate the events and leave feedback - this helps us keep track of attendance and fix anything that needs fixing.
4) Our Membership Dues are a one-time payment of $10. This will be to share the cost of the website fee.
Thanks - looking forward to meeting you soon!
