Please email email@example.com and let our organizers know which event you will likely be attending. If your plans change, please just let us know.
Feel free to message us for additional options, if you have trouble attending either event. Once you arrive at the event, please be on the lookout for our group. Our members wear a blue ribbon on their person or more likely their diaper bags or strollers. We have a sign in sheet and name tags out at each Park Play and Mingle event too so make sure you sign in! Please don’t hesitate to ask around for Busy Moms and Tots if you’re not sure you found the group. We want to help you feel welcome but will also be chasing our little ones around. Each event has an organizer present and new members are required to meet the organizer before being granted group access so please be sure you do!
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.
We hold meetups several times a week and ask members to attend at least one meetup each month. Meetups usually occur Monday through Friday during working hours. They often include events like storytimes, park playdates, Jacksonville Zoo, MOSH museum, in-home playdates, lunches, and other age appropriate activities. We also 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.
In order to join our group, you are required to attend a public Park Play and Mingle event (info above) before becoming an approved member. After this initial event, you're given an additional 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 duesof $10.00 that cover 1 year of membership if you decide to continue with the group.
