The West Loop Familiesis a not-for-profit organization that offers community support to member families through The group provides children with opportunities for social interaction and play through playdates, story times, gatherings at parks, zoos, museums, indoor playgrounds, restaurants, holiday events - and more! Our gatherings are all around the city, though our home playdates tend to stay in the West Loop and surrounding neighborhoods.

We keep parents busy, too. Through our group, parents will meet other families in our community. Ours is a community for socializing through family dinners, product samplings, a book club, social outings, special events, moms'  nights out, educational workshops and more!

West Loop Families is for expecting mothers and families with children 0 to 8 years old. Our gatherings are around the city, though home playdates tend to stay in the West Loop and neighboring communities. If you're a stay-at-home or working parent or caregiver in the Chicago area and are looking for things to do with and without the kiddos, join our group! We're a friendly bunch. See what we're up to by visiting our website, -- and please like us on FB!

West Loop + West Town + Ukraine Village + Bucktown + Near North + Little Italy + University Village +

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.
