What we're about

We are a group dedicated to supporting families of young children in the greater Mountain View area. We run a Meetup group, a private Facebook group, and a Babysitting Co-op.

MVPA Meetup

On our Meetup site you can find fun park playdates, trips to museums and zoos, childhood development workshops, local events, and how to RSVP to our own seasonal socials, which benefit local, child-oriented charities. Anyone can post a Meetup. There is a 3-month free trial, and then a $5 annual due, which pays for our Meetup membership.


Paid Meetup members get access to our private Facebook page. We share lots of useful information, ranging from the latest Groupon deals to recommendations on pediatric dentists. Spontaneous playdates are also sometimes posted on Facebook, but not on Meetup.

Babysitting Co-op

MVPA also runs a babysitting co-op. Co-op members exchange babysitting credits for childcare. Joining the co-op is a great way to build your community of parents, save money and enjoy more nights out.

We hope to see you soon! Please contact any of the organizers if you have any questions.
