What we're about
Thank you for your interest in the Peoria Area Moms on the Move group! We are a group of area moms who are interested in having fun with their children. We try to have several events each week to choose from: playdates for all ages, Moms' Night Out events, crafty playdates (arts & crafts, food crafts, etc), story time, and more! We have several large family events throughout the year, as well. Some of our moms work outside the home; some are stay-at-home moms. Children in our group range from infant to school age, however the most active group is the preschool age child.
Peoria Area Moms on the Move has been active for over 10 years!!! We are here not only to keep our children entertained, but also to create a support network between moms! In the group we hope that you develop lasting friendships between the kiddos and between ourselves as we navigate all aspects of being a mom!
If you are interested in learning more about the group, please visit the pages tab at the top of this page. There you will find information regarding playdates, dues, and group guidelines.
In order to become a full member you MUST attend an orientation playdate. The next New Member Orientations are scheduled for:
Thursday, August 16th, from 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM, at Bicycle Safety Town in Peoria;
Thursday, August 30th, from 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM, at the indoor play area near DICK'S Sporting Goods at Shoppes at Grand Prairie in Peoria;
At the orientation, you will be given the opportunity to learn all about our group, meet some moms, and be accepted into the group for a 30-day trial period before we ask for full (paid) commitment. Dues are very important in maintaining our group. The majority of the dues go towards the use of the Meetup website. We must pay a subscription fee every 6 months to use the site. The remainder of the dues is used to pay for the annual family parties, playdate supplies, and advertising.
Please note, you must also submit for acceptance by clicking the Join Us button on this site before attending an orientation. Please also email Magdalena McBride at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot and so that we can e-mail you with any updates or changes. Also feel free to e-mail with any questions or concerns, or if none of the orientation events seem to be working for you.
