JMB Neighborhood and Parenting Groups!

Introducing Neighborhood and Parenting Groups in Jacksonville!

Our primary goal in creating Jacksonville Moms Blog was to connect moms online, as well as offline through playdates and our events. Jacksonville is the largest city by area in the United States and we would like to make it feel a little smaller by creating neighborhood playgroups! Whether you’re a new mom, new to the city, or just want to meet new friends, our monthly meet-ups will be the perfect way to connect with moms in your area.

We would love to assign a “Mombassador” for each area to help with coordinating these gatherings because YOU know your neighborhood best! If you are interested in volunteering to be your neighborhood Mombassador, please email [email protected]

We currently have 13 neighborhood groups available to join. Don’t see your neighborhood? We’re just starting this program so please let us know so we can get your area covered. Just click on your neighborhood and ask to join the group!

    Is the San Marco FB group linked correctly? I can’t get the page to open for some reason (others worked for me)

      It worked for me. Try going into FB and searching JMB Downtown/San Marco/St. Nicholas…..

    I am a music teacher, former lower-school music director of The Bolles School, who has started a music business through which I offer general music classes for preschoolers up through 5th-grade homeschoolers in several different areas of Jacksonville. I also offer private piano and guitar instruction. I have a website: http://www.TheTrebleWithMusic.com and a Facebook page. Is there a way to spread information about what I offer on your blog?

    Can a list be posted anywhere else beside Facebook for us none Facebook users. Would love to find families nearby but we don’t use Facebook.

    Thanks

      Unfortunately, the neighborhood groups are only on FB. It’s the easiest way for moms to get info about playdates and connect with other moms in the area…. We do post about bigger events on the website so please subscribe!

    Hi there! Can we add Historic Springfield to the “downtown” group? We have lots of mamas and are ready to mingle!
