Are you a parent looking to connect with other Fairlington moms and dads? The MOMS Club of Arlington-Fairlington VA© chapter of the International MOMS Club may be for you!
Members and their children participate in fun activities, service projects, Parent's Night Out, meetings with interesting speakers and discussions, and groups such as our walking, dinner, and book clubs. Our weekly age-specific playgroups start as young as birth and go up to 3+ years old. Playgroups are wonderful for kids, but they also offer parents a chance to find support and friendship.
In addition to weekly playgroups, we host a variety of activities for children, including outings to local nature centers and parks, ice cream shops, the children’s library, and more. We also host larger quarterly parties, such as our popular summer picnic and Halloween party. The whole family is encouraged to attend! To give an opportunity for parents to get out of the house, we also get together for Parent’s Night Out about once a month, such as our holiday cookie exchange, game and movie nights, and our book and dinner clubs.
We host speakers to present on topics of interest to parents including separation anxiety, nutrition, early childhood literacy, positive discipline, and even wardrobe styling for busy moms. Recently, we hosted a local author who shared tips on how to help our children learn to appreciate a wide variety of foods and flavors.
Our Club is also dedicated to service in our community. In the last year, members have worked on several community service projects benefiting Abingdon Elementary School and the Arlington Food Assistance Center. We have also raised donations for and participated in the March of Dimes - March For Babies.
Parents and parents-to-be are welcome to join us for general meetings which are held the second Wednesday of every month at 4pm at the Fairlington Community Center (3308 S. Stafford St). Children are always welcome.
For more information about the Club, the general meeting, or membership, please contact the Fairlington MOMS Club Membership Vice President at firstname.lastname@example.org. Annual dues of $25 support quarterly group functions and community service projects.
