Introduce your kids to their first friendships and make some of your own!
Typically our playgroups are organized by birthdate in six-month windows. We encourage you to join the playgroup that corresponds with your child’s birthdate, but you are also welcome to explore others. (For example, kids on the cusp of two playgroups often join both to find the best fit or double their fun.)
Playdates can happen in homes, at local attractions, or in parks. Please don’t shy away from joining, even if you don’t feel comfortable hosting in your home.
Dads, nannies, and other childcare providers are welcome to bring your child(ren) to playdates and, unless otherwise specified by the host, older siblings are welcome.
Playgroups aim to offer:
• An active playgroup until the children are entering Kindergarten
• 1 x weekend playdate per quarter
• 2 x weekday playdate per month
• 4 x Moms' nights out per year
• Group encouragement to attend CMC events, meetings, speakers, etc.
• A monthly email communicating events for the playgroup and the CMC, as a whole.
• An annual traditional event (a potluck party, ice cream social, etc...) just for your playgroup. Take pictures and watch your kids grow!
See below for directions on how to register for a playgroup. If you would like more general information about playgroups, please reach out to our playgroups coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
Specialty Playgroups and Interest Groups
