Why should I join NPPG? Developing new friendships and gaining a support system are two of the main benefits of joining a parents’ group. Getting out and meeting new people can be hard when you just had a baby or moved to a new place. By joining NPPG, you'll meet other parents in your same stage of life who are seeking advice on baby issues, wanting parenting tips, or just looking for some adult interaction.
Finding a fellow mom or dad you can connect with who also has children the same age as yours is priceless. Your children will have the opportunity to learn how to make friends, share and play together. These social skills will benefit them for the rest of their lives. Plus, it may make the first day of school less scary when you already have plenty of friends in your class.
NPPG's fun-filled activities and events are where these life-long friendships begin to develop. If you are a new parent, new to the area or simply looking to mix and mingle with other North Phoenix families, this is the group for you.
Do I have to live in North Phoenix to be a member? No, NPPG is for families in North Phoenix and surrounding areas. Since most of our events are located in Desert Ridge, you just have to be willing to drive here.
What is the age range of children in NPPG? Most activities are geared toward infants through early elementary school aged children.
Does the $40 membership fee cover all my expenses for participation? Your annual membership fee primarily helps to defer the cost of hosting events, such as food, beverages, bounce houses, etc. It does not cover participation in activities such as admission fees to playdate locations or for Mom's/Dad's Night Out.
Is there a way for me to check out the group before I become a member? Definitely! You are welcome to attend our play dates, Mom's/Dad's Night Out and any public events to meet our members and learn more about NPPG. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about our upcoming activities and events or follow us on our public Facebook page, www.facebook.com/NorthPhoenixParentsGroup.
Do your sponsors offer discounts to NPPG members? Yes! Some of our sponsors offer free trials, discounts, waived fees, etc. to our members. All special offers are posted on our private Facebook page.
When and why did Desert Ridge Parents' Group change its name to North Phoenix Parents' Group? We changed our name in early 2018 due to a trademark issue surrounding the use of Desert Ridge in our name.
