Del Mar Foundation Playgroups celebrate their first anniversary

Responding to a strong need in the community, the Del Mar Foundation last year launched two baby and toddler playgroups.  Organized and hosted by the Children’s Committee, the playgroups provide Del Mar families a place to gather with their children to interact, form bonds, and make new friends.

“Community response has been tremendous, “ says Children’s Committee Chair Kelley Huggett.  According to Del Mar’s Anne Chao, “The playgroup is wonderful. It is so casual, friendly and open. We love the idea that our 18 month old is already getting to know neighborhood kids that she will grow up with.”

Shannon and Brett Alderman describe the playgroup as “a great opportunity for our son to interact with other kids his age — and a chance for the parents to connect and share parenting experiences.”

Playgroups are open to families living within the 92014 zip code. They are held at St. Peter’s Church Nursery, 334 14th Street, Del Mar as follows:

•   Infant to 24 months old group meets on Tuesday mornings from 9 a.m.-noon every other week starting July 16.

•   Infant to 3 years old group meets on Saturday mornings from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. every other week starting July 20.

The Del Mar Foundation sponsors programs, makes grants, and manages nearly $1.8 million in endowment funds to benefit the community and the San Dieguito Lagoon. The Foundation’s community endowment provides long-term funding stability for community needs. For more information about the Del Mar Foundation please visit our website at www.delmarfoundation.org.
