 Welcome to Las Madres!

Las Madres Neighborhood Playgroups is a California Non-profit Public Benefit Corporation.

Las Madres was formed in 1953 by a group of women in a Palo Alto childbirth class. The main purpose of Las Madres is to provide a network of neighborhood playgroups for those with children born in the same year ages 0-5. Through Las Madres playgroups, members find friendship, support and helpful information as well as an opportunity for their children to make friends their own age. Although the Playgroups remain the heart of Las Madres, today we have evolved into much more.
