What we're about
We are here for you and your children. Where else can you find a Mom Network offering support, friendship, resources, and activities for the kids! The children in this group range from infants to early elementary. Our moms are in their mid 20s-mid 40s. We welcome both SAHM and part-time working moms in Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, Lake Forest, Ladera Ranch, Foothill Ranch and other neighboring areas in the Saddleback Valley.
Our monthly calendar is packed full of activities to enjoy together. We include: park days in the mornings and afternoons, small group playdates, holiday parties, meetups at local venues, lake days, local events, and mom’s night out (MNO). The majority of our events are in the mornings and a few afternoon events during the week. We average only about 3 or 4 weekend events a year.
Participation is key to developing friendships for both you and your child(ren). We would like our moms to attend meetups regularly, at least twice a month. For our newest members, please attend a meetup within the first few weeks to see if we are a good fit. If we are, please pay your dues within two months of joining, if not please remove yourself from our membership to make room for someone new. If you don't attend an event within 6 weeks of joining, we will assume you've decided we aren't a good fit for you and we will drop you from our membership. Annual dues are $20 and can be paid via check/cash or PayPal (pay to firstname.lastname@example.org). If you are new to Meetup, than please check your spam filters for emails. We will get in touch with our new and potential members!
In light of the recent measles outbreak, we now ask that all members let us know whether their children are up to date with their vaccinations, so that we can keep a record for our files. Please know that vaccination is not a requirement for membership in our group. However, we have a number of moms who are expecting little ones in the next few months and some of our members have expressed concerns about having unvaccinated children at in-home playdates. At this time, given the recent outbreak, we ask that unvaccinated children who are of age and able to be vaccinated not attend in-home play dates. Thank you for understanding and please do let us know if you have any questions!
Come out and make a forever friend for you and your child.
