How we work
Maureen Bloom PLAYDATES uniquely introduces children aged 18 to 36 months to a nurturing, creative socialization program, where the joy of play, child-centered activities, art, and outdoor exploration encourage independence, foster confidence, and first friendships are formed. Drop-off playgroup classes are facilitated by 2 trained staff members and rotate among the participants loving homes - the most natural and secure environment for learning, discovery, and transitioning your young child’s first separation experience.
We would love you to join us for year-round fun!
27 YEARS AND COUNTING!
What our Parents say
I have been SO impressed by Playdates, above and beyond…..The quality and warmth of the teachers, the communication, the professionalism. Playdates is a special part of the community and I am so happy we have had the chance to be a part of it. Thank you for what you do! I have also made great friends through it.

It’s been an amazing year for Una with Amy & Dot and her first group of very best friends. Thank you, Amy and Dot, for bringing so much joy to Una’s life and teaching her how to be a friend. We will miss you.

I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you. I was more than impressed with my daughter’s summer camp experience. I appreciated your attention to detail (especially the home visits before camp started - really helped to make my daughter feel more comfortable), and your well planned out days. My daughter came home every day with a new, sweet song that she learned, a clever project that she did, and so many fun stories to tell. Thank you for a wonderful Summer. My only wish is that it didn’t end so soon.
Please also send my thanks to Ms. Katie and Ms. Mia. They were wonderful. They dove right in and loved and played with the kids as though they had been with them for months.
I’m excited that I have another, younger daughter that I can sign up for Playdates when she’s older.
