If you’ve just moved to Long Island you might be exploring Long Island. If you’re a Mom, this might be a difficult transition for you and your kids. Being responsible for finding your kids the best school, community groups and activities, can be a daunting task. That’s why Hall Lane and our Long Island movers have put together a list of resources to help new Mom’s in the Long Island area get settled. Whether it’s a website, resource or community meet-up group – we have something for you.
1. Mingling Moms: Visit Minglingmoms.com if you’re a new (12 months or less) or expecting Mom moving to Long Island. The group hosts two-hour lunches where a guest speaker will offer advice and insight into motherhood. This event also offers time for Moms to mix and mingle in an open-discussion.
2. Café Mom: Visit the “Long Island Moms” group on cafémom.com to participate in forum discussions around specific topics, including:
a.Long Island Pregnant Moms
b.Long Island Toddlers
c.Long Island Kids with Special Needs
d.Long Island Teens and Tweens
e.Long Island Childcare and Babysitter
3. Meetup.com: Want to meet some Moms for a meetup? Check out meetup.com for local interest groups including some that are Mom-specific. One active group that’s organizing activities right now is the “Stroller Strides Moms Group of Long Island”: http://www.meetup.com/strollerstrides-longisland/
After you check out these resources, be sure to talk to neighbors and parents at your kids’ schools, as there are usually some localized play-dates or groups that get together more informally. It’s always great to get to know people in your community – it will help moving to Long Island that much easier for you and your family.
