What we're about
Thank you for your interest in Busy Moms and Tots of Jacksonville (BMAT).
Are you a mom that needs a reasons to get out of the house with the kids? Wouldn’t it be great to have a group of moms like yourself to either ask questions, bounce ideas off of, laugh with about a silly something that the kids did, or even just share your trials and tribulations and have someone else to say, “yep, me too!”
BMAT is just as much for the moms as it is for the kids! The kids get to not only have fun, but have amazing experiences meeting new friends, exploring new activities around town, and hopefully learning some cool stuff that will of course benefit your kiddos when they head off to school!
We hold meetups several times a week… mostly Monday through Friday starting around 10:30 AM. They often include events like crafts, park playdates, Jacksonville Zoo, MOSH museum, in-home playdates, lunches, educational themed events, holiday parties and other age appropriate activities. We strive to have unique, interesting and fun events that take advantage of our group's diversity and talents, and the wonderful events our city has to offer. We also have some meetups after school where older siblings can get in on the fun as well as a few weekend activities and Moms Night Out meetups!
As a Mom, our kids are our greatest concerns… their happiness, education, and safety. With safety in mind, we don’t post our meetups for the general public to see. We would like to meet you and your kids in person first. In order to become an approved member with full access to our group events, postings, and calendar, we require a meet and greet in person at an event with a public location.
Also, if you are friends with an existing member in real life, please email us with their name and we can add you to the group!
We hope you join our meetup to make new mom friends and exchange advice, support, and laughs! Most importantly, we provide our little ones with the chance to socialize, to learn, and to explore through play.
After your initial event, you're given a 30-day trial period to come to more events and see if the group is a good fit for your family. After the trial period, pay membership dues of $10.00 that cover 1 year of membership (renews each august) if you decide to continue with the group.
