The Durham Mothers Club is a support network just for moms in Durham, NC.We were founded in 1988 as a support network just for moms in and around Durham, NC and go by the motto "Friendship - Support - Education."
We are proud to offer all three to our members and more! We welcome all types of moms with kids of all ages although most members tend to have kids under the age of 5. Older siblings are always welcome any time!
We offer Moms' Nights Out, a Foodie Club, a Book Club, playdates at local venues and events, a Preschool Information Fair and Directory, a Kindergarten Forum, and so much more! In addition, members of the club get discounts for special events like our fall and spring festivals. In order to join, all members must have a child/children or be expecting a child soon.
Durham Mother's Club Policies
Membership dues are $13 per year and are due within 30 days of joining and each year on your anniversary date. The $13 dues are used to pay for the Meetup site administration fees as well as community events, aid in lower ticket prices and other special event perks to increase the fun factor.
Members are encouraged to use the first 30 days as a trial to ensure this is the group for them, as all membership fees are non-refundable.
The Durham Mother's Club is a member-driven playgroup. Our inspired, creative moms are what drive this group. With that in mind, any mom may host an event and are encouraged. Play dates can be in-home or a public venue (e.g. park, museum, etc.). If you are uncomfortable hosting your first play date alone, please feel free to contact the Organizers and one of us will try to organize to co-host with you.
For the health and safety of all our parents and kids, please stay home if you or your child show any of these symptoms within the past 24 hours: o A temperature of 100 degrees or higher o Diarrhea or vomiting o A rash o Eye, ear or nasal discharge, other than clear o Sore throat You should remain at home until you/your child are/is free of symptoms for 24 hours. This is for your protection as resistance is low when you are ill and you are more susceptible to other infections.
Code of Conduct for Events
These guidelines are in place to ensure a supportive and positive event experience for our members’ and their children. Please adhere to these guidelines so that everyone can enjoy the event!
• Respect all individuals. Please remember to respect each other! This includes feelings of others and property of others. We all come from different places, different families and different situations. With a large group of people, it is inevitable that some will not get along with others. However, each member, Mommies and Children alike, deserves respect and consideration.
• Criticizing a member publicly (at an event or on our Facebook page) will not be tolerated. If disagreements do occur, we expect them to be handled privately. Any behavior deemed disrespectful to a member or to Durham Mother's Club will result in a warning. If you are unsure if your behavior is unacceptable, it probably is. If you feel you are being personally attacked in any way, please notify the organizers.
Questions? Comments? Concerns? Please reach out to a Mama on the lead team and we are more than happy to chat.
ABOVE ALL, HAVE FUN! Enjoy what the Durham Mother's Club has to offer you and your children and we hope to see you soon!
