What we're about
We are a community of moms desiring to build friendships with other moms in the East Bay and provide regular playtimes with our little kiddos.
We are mamas with kids born between 2006-2012, and would love to make new friends in the East Bay. If your kids are older or if you're expecting, you are certainly welcome to join this Meetup group. We like exploring and finding fun and free places to hang out with our toddlers and infants in 4 cities in the East Bay - Berkeley, Emeryville, Oakland, and San Leandro.
We meet regularly and would love for you to join us! Our schedule is more active during the academic school year, taking a break for the holidays and summer vacation. Take a look at our calendar for upcoming Meetups around the East Bay. If you want to host a Meetup - just post it to our page to invite others to come!
Beginning in 2012, we made some changes to our Playgroup schedule. Every Tuesday except the first one of the month, we host a Mommy and Me Playtime at Creekside Community Church - from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM. Come anytime! It's located at 951 MacArthur Blvd in San Leandro. It is a free, safe, and fun indoor play space for infants through pre-K kids with age-appropriate toys and activities.
We also have other Meetups throughout the month - play dates, stroller walks, free museum visits, coffee shops, and moms night out. These Meetups are hosted by a variety of moms all over the East Bay. Let us know if you have any ideas for future Meetups or would like to help host.
This group is open, and we'd love for you to request to join, but it will be private for the safety of our members. Thanks for understanding! If you become an "East Bay Mama," please stay active and come to at least 1 Meetup every 6-8 weeks. We understand sometimes it's hard to stay connected with little ones or things come up. If you're not able to stay active or get involved, this might not be the best Meetup group for you.
We have a corporate sponsor for our Meetup Group - ThredUP - who is paying our annual dues to Meetup.com. Thanks ThredUP!!

What is thredUP?
thredUP, where moms swap kids clothing (and toys!) online. We connect thousands of moms across America and facilitate simple trades. For the ﬁrst time, parents can exchange boxes of kids’ outgrown clothing, for boxes of great clothes that ﬁt – without ever leaving the house.
What can I do on thredUP?
You'll get access to thousands of boxes of clothes organized by size, season and gender. Pick one you like for only $5 + shipping. You can also send your kids’ used stuff to another parent who needs it. Swapping is a great way to de-clutter, and get what you need in return!
We look forward to meeting you. See you sometime soon at a Meetup!
