We have had so many parents over the last couple years since we started Dayton Parent asking for ways to meet other parents. They sometimes felt like they were in their own little bubble as many of us do when raising children and needed to connect with other moms and dads. There are some great groups here in the Dayton area such as The Family Network, Parents without Partners, MOMS Group of Oakwood, Dayton Mothers of Twins, and more. It may be that you are looking for another mom to go on morning walks with, or find a dad that can relate to being a stay at home dad, or maybe find some other parents to have fun fieldtrips checking out cool places in Dayton or you just need to have an adult conversation with someone that won’t mention (or at least try) Dora, playing legos, or going peepee in the potty.
We are excited to introduce Dayton Parent PLAYDATES! This is a great opportunity to get out into our community with your children and see all that we have to offer. Each month we will feature a fun place that will be inviting us in and allow us to have a great time either playing or learning a new skill. There will also be other area businesses there that you can talk face to face with if you want and continue learning all that Dayton has. Our first playdate will be Sat. January 16th, 2015 at Whole Foods-Dayton on Miamisburg-Centerville Rd. from 2pm-4pm. The kiddos will be learning how to make healthy snacks (hands on) and it is FREE. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP with names of children and ages. Stay tuned for other dates and times and we hope you will join us each month. We can’t wait to get to know you!
