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.
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:
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!
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.
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.
