WELCOME! This group is open to Stay at Home Mom's with BABIES through PRESCHOOL AGED KIDDOS (pre VPK), due to the majority of the play dates being held during morning times while older kids are in school. Some after school and weekend play dates will be scheduled to involve the entire family. Play date locations will include theses areas Sarasota. Activities will include playing at the park, splash pads, mall play areas, trail walks, member's homes, zoo, crafts, toddler and babies exercise, libraries, story time, lunch dates, etc. New Member's should attend the monthly New Mom's and Kiddos Meet and Greet before attending other play dates. This is a great way to get to know you and you us! At this play date, if you choose, you may pay your Club dues to the organizer. Or you may choose to use your 30 day trial period to see if the group is right for you. Dues, once paid are non-refundable. Any time during this 30 day period you may choose to pay your dues via cash to organizer in person or via PayPal at pfledderman@gmail. If you choose the Paypal option please use the 'friends and family option' so that our group gets the total amount without losing fees to PayPal. Dues are $10 and are paid yearly, and used for meet up fees and for snacks and crafts used for the group. We DO NOT take dues through the meet up website. If you have not paid your dues by the end of the 30 day trial you will be removed from the group and may not be allowed to rejoin. Please communicate with an organizer if arrangements need to be considered before 30 days are up. Additional fees may be required for some activities but will have optional participation, and will be stated upfront in description of meet-up and split equally between participants of the activity. Any member may suggest/host an event. Please use the suggested meet up tool. You may send a message to an organizer here on meet up or via our Facebook page (link below) to let us know to approve. You will be required to host the events you suggest. To make sure we have an active thriving group we ask that you suggest and host at least 1 play date once every 3 months and attend 3-4 playdates per month to remain in active status with the group. (To Host means putting a play date on the calendar to meet at a park to play, at a mall, at your home, etc.) Please try and be there on time and do your best not to cancel. However, things happen that cant be foreseen, if you can't make it please communicate via comments of the event or send an organizer a private message letting them know you will not be able to attend for longer period of time, no explaination is necessary. But periods of longer then 3 months and we may ask that you rejoin at a later time. Please also, to make sure your RSVP is up to date. When things happen make sure to leave a comment in the event explaining your change or if you are running behind. You do not need to RSVP "No" to every play date you can not attend, unless you are changing your RSVP from a "Yes". Most play dates do not require you to RSVP your children. Hostess will request a head count if needed and you can include that in the comments section. And please check meetup before you leave to go to a play date to check the status, sometimes hosts have to cancel last minute due to illness, weather, etc. Looking Forward to meeting YOU and your kiddos!!
