Playgroups are a great way to meet other moms and make friends for your little ones. Playgroups are grouped by age for children from birth up to five years old.
The newsletter is printed and mailed to our members around the 1st of each month. An electronic copy is also made available in our online community.
Start new threads or join in on existing ones for parenting advice, information and more from our supportive community.
Facebook group access
Members can join in on even more discussions on the club's private Facebook group. You must be a member to join and keep access to the Facebook group.
The club hosts several subsidized events for all members to gather and enjoy some quality family time: Spring Fling, Summer BBQ, Harvest Party at Lemos Farm, and a Holiday Party. There may also be parent getaway events such as Moms Getaway, Dad's Day Out and potentially a Family Camping trip!
We currently offer a variety of groups that are led by current club members who organize events for group members or manage forums based on the group's needs. Here's a list of our current offerings:
New member socials
To welcome you to the club, we have our new members socials once every 3 months, its usually on a Saturday around 2pm. You will be able to meet in person other new members, the Members Coordinator, and other members of the board.
Join other moms, and their children, for club wide children's outings, usually held on a weekend. Activities range from going on hikes to a playdate at the park. Check the calendar every month for the latest update.
Speaker & Social Series
The Speaker & Social Series events are always relaxed, free, and open to the public. It’s a great way to get out of the house for adult time to learn and interact with other parents. And it’s a good way to introduce other parents to SMPC! Babes in arms welcome.
Usually held on a weeknight, after the kids are asleep, come join other adults for a fun night out, keep your eye on the calendar.
The In-a-Pinch (IAP) program is designed to assist club members during a family emergency or other major life event, such as the birth of a child, bedrest due to pregnancy, illness or surgery for oneself or a family member. When possible, meals are coordinated through members of the playgroup(s) or subgroups to which the mom belongs, but additional volunteers are always needed. We have also partnered with Dream Dinners in Belmont to offer moms a free dinner during their time of need.
The club Classifieds forum allows allows members to post any item(s) they are selling, wish to buy, or giving away. Additionally, business owners are able to post about their business once per month.
Free and Discounted Advertising to the Club
Members can advertise their businesses for free to the club in the Classifieds forum and on the Facebook group on business nights. They also have steep discounts on newsletter and email advertising. Learn more about advertisement discounts on our advertising page.
