PLAY GROUP GUIDELINES

Playgroups are organized by the child’s birth year and day-of-the-week requests. They are geared towards ages 5 and under. They are intended to be an enjoyable time for moms and kids to socialize together & consistent attendance is highly encouraged!

The following guidelines are designed to help the playgroups run smoothly:

1. Playgroups are set at a minimum of 3 members and a cap of no more than 10-20 children depending on age of the group. Members who have matched into a group that has reached capacity will be placed on a waiting list until 3 or more moms have the same day/time needs, then a new group will be formed.

2. Moms are to stay with their child for the duration of the playgroup meeting unless another mom has agreed to babysit.

3. Regular & consistent attendance is highly encouraged & expected, so that close friendships can form between both children and moms. Time and again we have heard that playgroups are where some of the best GCS Moms League friendships are made!

4. A member may be in one playgroup per child, with one additional overall. Members may not be in different play groups that meet at the same day/time.

5. While we cannot isolate our children for every sniffle, sick children are not permitted to attend playgroup. A child must be without fever for 24 hours before returning to the group. Children on antibiotics may return to playgroup once their doctor indicates the child is no longer contagious.

6. No aggressive behavior will be tolerated. This includes hitting, biting, and verbal abuse to other children or mothers. Children must be kept home until such behavior ceases.

7. Playgroups are only for current GCS Moms League members. If you have a friend who would like to try out an event before joining, please have them contact our membership team HERE!

8. Each playgroup will have one Contact person responsible for facilitating the following:

a. Meeting time, location and frequency
b. Whether snacks are provided or brought by each family
c. Mom’s League reminders (upcoming meetings and events)
d. Playgroup name
e. Additional activities (Parent’s Night Out, Mom's Night Out, etc.)

9. A member who has not attended a play date in 6 weeks may be asked to forfeit their spot in the group, especially if there is a waitlist. Please communicate with your group coordinator when you are unable to attend play dates.
