Hi there! I’m a single stay at home mama of a two year old and a 13 year old in prescott and I’m finding it super challenging to find link minded mama friends with toddlers? I’m thinking of starting a play group but I don’t even know where to begin. I just know my toddler needs friends and so do I! Any thoughts would be so appreciatedHello! We're also in PV, although we plan to put our house on the market this spring and move to Prescott. We don't homeschool--our older two go to Mountain Oak Charter School (Waldorf-inspired), and our youngest goes to a home-based preschool playgroup and will start Kindergarten at Mt. Oak next year. We love our school, but we did homeschool for a year. Our oldest (DS) did most of a year at K at Mt. Oak, really needed another year of K, so we decided to homeschool for various reasons, but ended up going back for first grade after taking a year off--he wanted to return.<br><br>
Anyway, there was a small homeschooling group in our area during that year we homeschooled, made up of non-Christian homeschoolers. It was mostly younger kids--ds was the oldest by at least 2 years--he was 6 at the time. We tried to plan regular activities, but somehow it never fully took off. All but two of the families have either sent their kids to school, or moved away from the area. I do know of a couple of families who still homeschool, one in Prescott--I think her kids are maybe 5 and 8, and one in Yarnell (about an hour from here), who is a close friend of mine--hers are 6 and 3. I could put you in touch with her--she's in Prescott from time to time and would probably enjoy meeting another homeschooling family.<br><br>
How old are your kid(s)? Have you been to the Wednesday storytime at the downtown Prescott Library? If not, it starts at 10 am, and it's a great place to meet other moms--lots of cool, Mothering-type mamas attend.<br><br>
Best wishes to you!
