Each year is called a Club year, and each geographic area group within that year is called a playgroup. For example, if your child was born in 2005 and you live in Sunnyvale, you would join the Club 2005, Sunnyvale playgroup. The exception is our Working Moms group, which is organized by year, but not divided into geographic regions.
In order to see what a playgroup has to offer, Las Madres has trial memberships that can allow you to sample what a playgroup is like. For more informatin, read our Trial Membership Information page.
If you are unsure about which playgroup to join you may go to our Reference Line Volunteers' page for a listing of our Reference Line Volunteers and their contact information or you may call the Reference Line at 1-877 Las-Madres to hear their contact information. You can also look at the Current Active Playgroup List to see if there is a playgroup in your town. They are grouped by the year of your baby's birth, so if your child was born in 2005, look under the Club 2005 heading.
Our Working Moms group is separated by year but not by geographical area. The Working Moms groups typically have more weekend or weeknights activities to accomodate working schedules, so if you are planning to go back to work soon, you may want to trial working moms as well as your neighborhood playgroup.
To help you decide which playgroup is closest to you please visit the Playgroup Boundaries page to see our map and the area descriptions.
We are not affiliated with the Las Madres playgroups in Morgan Hill or Gilroy.
