Welcome to South Shore Moms and Caregivers

Our group is an offline community of mothers and caregivers with the shared priorities of safety, fun, service, and support. We strive to make our group an inclusive, safe and friendly place where we and our children can come together to play and learn, share the common experience of parenthood, and support the neighborhoods in which we live.

Our goal for the group is to make lasting friendships for ourselves and our kids. To accomplish this, we need to get to know each other. The best way to make friends in this group is to attend or suggest events.

New Members

We welcome those who want to be active members. By active, we specifically mean attending at least one event every 3 months (which includes anything on our calendar). All members can suggest/post events to our calendar.

Moms and caregivers of all ages are welcome. Although we have children of all ages in our group,
we primarily meet on weekdays during the day. Working moms and moms of school aged kids can meetup with us for our mom’s night outs or weekend family events, but they are sporadic.

New Member Guidelines
To be approved as a member, you must:

  • Complete your profile and post a recent picture of yourself as your main picture on your profile. For the safety of the group, and so we can find you at meetups, we need to see your pretty face!
  • Thoroughly answer group questions. We want to get to know you!
  • Attend one meetup within 30 days of joining the group, or you may be removed from the group. If you don't see a meetup you can attend, suggest one! This rule is for the safety of all our members and it will be strictly enforced.
  • Once you have joined the group, make sure you are subscribed to organizer messages. That's the only we have to contact the whole group about announcements and changes.

Current Members

We have made some changes to increase safety and participation in the group. One of the changes is to be "verified" which means you have met one of our organizers personally. If you are not "verified" you may not be able to attend certain private meetups so please make sure you meet with one of our organizers as soon as possible. If you have met with an organizer and it doesn't say "verified" under your name, please let us know so we can adjust your status.

Your participation is vital to keep this group going!

  • This is a meetup group. All members must be active. Being active means attending at least one event every 3 months. As mothers, we understand that some circumstances (e.g. illness, travel, birth, etc.) do not always allow active participation, and Organizers will make exceptions to this rule on a case-by-case basis. If you are going to be inactive for over 3 months, please let an Organizer know.
  • If we find that someone is not active based on the above criteria, the person will be warned once and then removed from the group if activity doesn’t pick up.

Members due

There is a $6 non-refundable annual fee that is used to cover Meetup cost, encourage more engaged members, snacks for playgroups, organizers meetings and the Helping Moms group.

Playdates

There are a lot of us, so we encourage you to host/attend playdates throughout the South Shore. You can host/attend playdates at parks, museums, the zoo, the beach, playgrounds, really anywhere you think we can have some fun! If you would like to host a playdate at your home, please e-mail your address only to the people who RSVPed "Yes" to it.

If you would like to attend a playdate at someone's house only RSVP for it if you have already met the hostess at a previous Meetup, and please be courteous if you can't make it and let the hostess know as soon as possible. We know that life happens! As moms we all understand that unforeseen events come up. If you are going to be late, please call/email the hostess to let her know.

The Fine Print - Read Before Applying

  • Please fill out the profile questions when you apply. No profiles with any blank questions will be approved.
  • Give us a great introduction. The introduction you write will be seen by all of our members when they log onto our site. So, tell us about yourself! Bare introductions will not be approved. Introductions should have more than your name, child's name, and hello in order to be approved. 
  • You must have a recent picture of yourself as your main profile picture in order to join. This is to help ensure the safety and comfort of all. No applications will be accepted without a picture.
  • Though we love to support each other, please do not join this group with the intent to sell to us. Business Meetups are not okay. If you'd like to host a playdate or do a free class/demo to the moms or kids that's fine.
  • The entire purpose of this group is to meet other moms/caregivers. For security reasons all new members must attend an event within their first 30 days as a member. If there isn't an event that you can come to, suggest one! Exceptions will be made for those moving to the area. If you will not be able to attend an event in your first 30 days, please let the organizer know why.
  • By applying to this group, you acknowledge and agree that your safety, and the safety of anyone that attends events with you, including your children is your sole responsibility. You understand and agree that you will not hold the group or any organizers responsible for your safety and well being.
  • By applying for this group, you acknowledge that there will be people taking pictures at our events, and you give permission for those pictures to be used on the group website, and for group purposes.
  • You understand that anyone found not adhering to our policies may be removed from the group at any time at an organizer's discretion.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
