Of course not! It just means you need to register for a Mama ticket (if you’re in the young families season). Come along! This is for you.
No. The childcare is for Mama’s attending the MOM meeting only. Please do not leave the building without your child.
The childcare team will make every effort to settle your child and help them to feel secure. If they are too unsettled we will call you out of the MOM meeting to settle them.
Our Enhanced DBS-checked childcare volunteers will be happy to change your child’s nappy or supervise them whilst going to the toilet.
Please bring a nappy bag with any bottles your child may need. Please bring nappies and wipes and some spare clothes for them.
We will have some travel cots available or we can rock your child to sleep in a pushchair or baby chair.
Although our childcare volunteers are DBS checked, they are not all childcare professionals so we cannot guarantee that they will be able to provide the required specialist support. Please let us know in advance if your child has any special needs and we will do everything we can to accommodate.
Yes, a microwave is on site.
There will be a few highchairs available on site.
Of course! All babes that are tiny and nursing are welcome to come into the Mama part of the MOM Meet.
Although we will have a very limited space for buggies, we recommend not bringing them due to the proximity of parking available nearby.
Free childcare for 0-5s will be facilitated by our volunteers who will be wearing special lanyards on the day. It will be an unstructured free-play session (for the duration of our meet) with a variety of toys and a sectioned off area of non-movers. It is essential to pre-book your places to the MOM Meets and on the day, please register your child at the Registration Desk when you arrive. We kindly ask that to prevent the spread of infection you do not bring children who are unwell.
During the MOM Meet our Childcare Workforce will care for your child. All of our workforce are recruited using the ‘Safer Recruitment’ guidelines issued by the Churches Child Protection Agency: of whom we are members. In addition to this, a core of the workforce have Enhanced DBS checks and Volunteer DBS checks. The session is supervised by a Level 6 Childcare Professional. It is our core aim to provide the highest possible care for the children. If you require further information please do not hesitate to contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Due to limited spacing we ask that tickets are only reserved for those who can attend the event. In the case of unforeseen circumstances (#mumlife) we kindly ask that you let us know asap by emailing: email@example.com or feel free to give your ticket to a Mama friend (providing the number of children remains the same).
To ensure we can cater for as many women as possible, we kindly ask that only two children accompany each parent.
Our local MOM Meets are tailored towards women in the young families season, however if you feel like you want to be a part of MOM, you are more than welcome to come along (please be aware that only children 0-5 can attend). Alternatively, our online community is just for you! Connect with like-minded women on our forum and get inspired and encouraged with our weekly resources. For details of upcoming events open to any mama, join our mailing list to keep on the page.
As MOM exists to serve mamas in the child-raising season, we kindly ask that only mums with young children attend our MOM Meets. However, if you’re a caregiver or mother of older children, we would love to get to know you over on our online community. Come and say hi 🙂
Because we must ensure the correct ratio of supervisors/children it is essential to register online to secure your place.
Entry and refreshments are complimentary. If you would like to contribute, a voluntarily donation of £3 would be greatly appreciated and can be made at the door on the day.
