We are a group of parents who like to get together for our benefit and our children's! We are not exclusively a play group, because we do offer some activities, but we do like to have fun and allow plenty of time for all to socialize.
The kids have a chance for interaction and the parents have an opportunity to share, bounce ideas, or just laugh.
Our group is quite active!
We usually meet every Wednesday during the school year for some type of activity. We come together mostly for field trips and play days. Infrequently, we have art classes, movie day, picnics, roller skating, open mic (like a show and tell), etc. There are no group fees.
The creative parents, who help in the planning and organizing of events and activities, are the backbone of our group!
Most activities are free, however, occasionally we have a donation box to help cover the expenses of the coordinators. Field trip opportunities which charge an entrance fee are usually collected ahead of the event.
We have an agreement which each parent is asked to sign. It is merely an agreement to adhere to the rules of the facility where we meet and a few common courtesy considerations.
What we are not....
We are not a co-op with scheduled classes or tutoring. We do not offer a homeschool "program" where curriculum is provided or chosen for members.
