Welcome to the Working Moms Playgroup
FRANKLIN / BELLINGHAM AREA CHAPTER

We are a chapter of the Working Mom’s Playgroup, Inc. which is a nonprofit corporation and a 501(c)3 publicly-supported charity registered with the IRS.


Geographic Region  The Working Mom’s Playgroup (Franklin/Bellingham Area), is geared towards mothers residing in the towns of Franklin, Bellingham, Mendon, Medway, Millis, Norfolk, Wrentham, and other surrounding towns.

We believe it is important for all mothers to foster relationships with fellow moms residing within their local community. Mothers who live outside our catchment area will be encouraged to work with the main WMPlaygroup organization to develop a chapter in their local area.  Women who are not mothers, as well as those living outside of the listed communities who wish to join, are subject to the approval from the Chapter Officers.

Get Involved! Because this group is all about forming real relationships in real life, we host regular in-person activities and participation in group events is highly encouraged. The most successful way to make connections and receive support through your "mom tribe" is through face-to-face interaction. By joining our group you are making a commitment to yourself, your children, and our members to attend events.

There are many ways to get involved: attend an event that has been posted to our calendar, participate in social media discussions or join the leadership team. You will find many opportunities for the WMPlaygroup to enrich your life.
