Boston Dads Group is a diverse community of fathers in the Massachusetts and Rhode Island areas, who take an active role in our children’s lives. We seek to create an online meetup group to bring fathers together in person. We'll meet several times per week, with our kids, at parks, playgrounds, museums, parent-and-me classes, and living rooms across the greater Boston Metro and Providence, Rhode Island areas. We'll also organize parenting workshops and Dads Nights Out to give our members an opportunity to socialize, learn, and support each other as we navigate parenthood.
There are not enough resources, social groups, or services for dads. This is a destination for all active dads. A diverse group with dads of all stripes: stay-at-home dads, dads with flexible schedules, work from home dads, freelancers, working dads, teachers, and involved fathers in and around the Boston Metro and Providence, RI areas to socialize and interact with other guys who enjoy spending quality time with their children.
** Please note this group is strictly for Dads, we understand sometimes wives will try to join for their significant others but we encourage them to join on their own accord. We want this group to be a comfortable place for Dads to learn and talk about anything dad related.
Six mornings a week, Renaissance Gymnastics Academy in East Providence hosts open play for toddlers and preschoolers up to age 5 at their facility. We're talking...
1) GIANT foam block climbing structures ans slides they keep re-arranging to keep things interesting
2) A tumbling (trampoline) track that kids can use to jump into a foam block pit
3) LOTS of open space for toddlers and preschoolers to run around with many babies sleeping in Bjorns or car seats.
4) Supervised use of their gymnastics equipment like uneven and parallel bars, balance beams, and more
There's a table/chairs setup in the entry room with a play table and vending machines.
Unlimited access for $25/month! It's $15 for a drop-in...if you decide to get a membership, they'll credit the $15 towards the first month.
Always a lot of dads there, too.
Diaper changes, pick-ups, drop-offs, laundry, cleaning, wrangling kids into gloves and hats can numb the mind...let's sharpen ours as a team and repeat our January win! Trinity Brewhouse in downtown Providence is a cool spot with great food and accessible by car or public transportation. Teams can be any number of players, but please RSVP in advance if possible so we can scout the right table.
