We are a growing group of Moms in the Winter Garden/Windermere area known as Horizon West. Our goal is to create meaningful relationships for our children and our moms through fun and age-appropriate playdates in our community.
-Playdates and playgroups geared towards specific ages AND events for all ages -Sensory play, library visits, story time, craft activities, playground play -Field trips to local businesses, trail walks, splash pad, and local gardens -Moms Night Out (wine-tastings, movie night, book club) -Family Night to allow for husbands and significant others to make dad friends too -Community Engagement with Service projects and community outreach
This is a collective playdate group, meaning that all members are given the opportunity to create and host playdates that can be added to the calendar!
To become a member you must:
-Be a Mom or Be expecting. This is a women-only group!
-Reside within the Horizon West area (unincorporated Winter Garden/Windermere) or be referred by an existing member if you are outside this geography
To join, click on the "JOIN US" button to set up your profile with a picture of you. Join requests without a current photo of yourself will not be accepted.
There is a 30 day "trial period" to see if the group is a good fit for you. You MUST attend one of our new member Meetups and after you will have 30 days to attend at least 1 public event to be eligible for permanent membership. After your trial period, if you feel the group is a great fit for you and your child(ren) you can make a decision on membership.
Dues are a non-refundable $10/year and are due at the time your trial is up and then annually thereafter.
We like members to be active, attending at least 1 events/playdate a month. We will remove members for inactivity. The majority of our events will be during the week so if you are looking for a weekend-focused playgroup this will not be a great fit.
First time expecting MOMS: First time expectant mothers can join and fees will be waived until your bundle has arrived and you are ready to come on play dates.
Sick Mommies & Children:
We have a strict sick policy. If you or your kid(s) are sick (running nose, coughing, sneezing etc.) please stay home. Allow your child or yourself to get better, and then come out to playdates. Remember we have expectant moms, and little babies. No exceptions.
We ask all members to be aware and respectful of allergies by providing allergen information to any food brought to playdates and list ingredients if necessary.
We ask all members to update their RSVPs to provide accurate event attendees for hosts. Please update your RSVP within 3 hours of the start of the playdate. We will remove members who have RSVPed to events and do not show or who chronically change RSVPs at the last minute to ensure we are respectful to our hosts time and energy.
As we know a lot of moms have "side hustles" which is AWESOME. This group however is not a place to solicit business or sell products. Our goal is to foster meaningful connections for moms and kids and we want that to be our priority!
*All dues go directly back to the group and all hosts and leaders are volunteers!*
