Welcome to the Working Mom’s Playgroup (Parkway Area!)
We are a Chapter of the Working Mom’s Playgroup, Inc. which is a nonprofit corporation and a 501(c)3 publicly-supported charity registered with the IRS.
Geographic Region The Working Mom’s Playgroup (Parkway Area), is geared towards mothers residing in the towns of Roslindale, West Roxbury and the surrounding communities of Jamaica Plain and Hyde Park. We believe it is important for all mothers to foster relationships with fellow moms residing within their close community. Mothers who live outside this catchment area will be encouraged to work with the main corporation, Working Mom’s Playgroup, Inc., to develop a chapter in her local area. Women who are not mothers, as well as those living outside of the listed communities who wish to join, are subject to the approval from the Chapter Officers.
Annual Dues Membership Fees are $15.00, to be paid within 1 month of joining and renew annually.
Types of activities The types of activities that will be found on our calendar will increase as our playgroup grows. We will begin with those listed under the Connections category and will increase as members express their desires and interests.
