What we're about
Welcome to Westside Mamas!
Our group is a terrific way to meet other moms and kids in the West Madison area!
All of our members are full or part-time stay-at-home moms and have at least one child under the age of five. Our calendar typically has 2-4 events each week and we make an effort to plan a variety of kids events that are suitable for all ages. Almost all of our activities occur during the weekday and include: field trips; playgroups; cooking, book and walking clubs; parties and park outings. We also have a monthly mom's night out!
Convenient: Being a smaller group on the west side keeps all our events closer to our homes.
Flexible: Attend an event at a time that is easiest for you and your little one(s).
Personal: Our group is the perfect size to meet new moms and kids regularly.
Inclusive: All our functions include children except Moms Night Out (infants can attend).
Supportive: need maternity clothes, a preschool recommendation, or potty training advice? Ask a fellow group member!
Our group has a Moms' Support coordinator who is committed to helping our group assist any member in need. (For example, when a baby is born, our members will provide a week or two of dinners to the new mom and her family).
Our group is open only to moms living in the West Madison* Area. Prospective members can attend one public event** before officially deciding to join our group. Our membership fee is $20 for a year (our dues fund the Meet Up site and occasional group parties).
Active mamas make the group more fun and interesting, so we encourage our members to attend at least one event a month. All members must RSVP “yes” to the events they are attending (this is out of courtesy for the organizers running the event). If you cannot attend the event change your RSVP as soon as possible or contact the host. Children do not need to be included in the RSVP.
*your home address must meet our membership area requirements. If your address is west of the capital and you have a Madison address you are within our boundaries (areas that are not within our borders: Middleton, Verona and Fitchburg). If your address is outside of these requirements please check the Meetup site for groups in your area.
**Public events are held outdoors but our more popular events are in-house play dates which are open only to members.
