What we're about
Welcome new parents and guardians with babies, toddlers and preschoolers!
This is a group for moms or dads stepping into their new(ish) role as parents! Our goal is to provide fun and safe activities for our little ones to socialize while we support each other as parents. Meet ups are new-addition friendly and either parents are welcome to attend. Currently our group is mostly 1-5 year olds with meet ups appropriate for this age group. We welcome those outside this range and will adjust meet ups accordingly. Please use the first 30 days of membership as a trial to see if this group is right for you. Meet ups will be family outings, play dates, house parties, neighborhood activities, and more.
Our goal is to have a meetup at least once a week. If there is an event you like, RSVP! We understand that life happens, please be courteous to the host. If you are not able to make it, please modify your RSVP and notify your host. No shows may result in being removed from the group. Feel free to suggest an activity or to offer to host/organize an event. Please note that our hosts/organizers are volunteers, so please be nice and courteous to them.
If you want to host an event:
Message the MeetUp Organizer Gloria Agoncillo and ask for the Event Organizer privilege.
Feel free to limit the number of available spots for the event if there is limited space (small house party or restaurant space), but keep the ability for RSVPs to add +1 (the other parent).
Please make sure to note:
* The event description
*Time frame for the event.
*Cost if any (such as entrance fee)
*And what is required from the participants (e.g. bring some item for a picnic in the park or potluck)
Make a simple sign to allow new participants to easily locate the meetup point ("Toddler Playgroup (0-5)")
(optional) name tags
Events cannot be for the purpose of soliciting members (such as mary kay...etc.) However we love to support each other and will be creating a Business Directory for those who would like to add their personal business information.
*Attendance and Safety *
We would like to keep members active to enable making lasting connections. Please try to introduce yourself within a month of joining, in addition, please attend a meetup at least every quarter. Inactive members will be removed from the group.
Please use a profile picture of yourself so that we may recognize you at a meetup.
Please check with other parents before posting on social media any pictures with their little ones in it.
Although we except other parents choices, we encourage vaccinating.
We are breastfeeding friendly.
Please support one another and use encouragement rather than judgement.
The most important thing is that we all have fun!!
