Though most of our members do live within the Foster City community, we have several members from surrounding areas such as San Mateo.
What is a playgroup?
A playgroup is a sub-community of members who have children within the same age range. Each playgroup is a bit different but the intention is to allow moms to get together with their children of similar ages. Together they can share stories, ideas, advice and companionship while their little ones play together. Depending on the age group, playgroups meet at member’s houses, parks, the mall, coffee shops and whatever creative idea the playgroup coordinator may decide.
How do I join a playgroup?
Once you’re a member, you can find information related to playgroups in the monthly newsletter and in the “Member Services” area of the website.
What if I don’t see a playgroup that fits my needs?
Create one! That’s how all playgroups were started. An inspiring mom contacted the main FCPC playgroup coordinator to get necessary information. Then once the details were discussed, a playgroup was started and the new playgroup was listed in the newsletter and website.
How can I advertise my services to the members of FCPC?
We provide several options for advertisers via our newsletter. See the “Advertise With Us” section of the site for more information on rates. Fees collected from advertising provide additional funding for club events and activities.
What if I have an idea or suggestion for improvement?
We very much welcome ALL suggestions and ideas from our members. At each General Meeting there is a suggestion box where you can anonymously provide feedback or simply send us an email.
