Bococa Parents is a free network of local parents residing in BOerum Hill, CObble Hill, and CArroll Gardens (and the surrounding) neighborhoods of Brooklyn, New York.
The group's mission is to establish community and communication amongst Bococa’s families and to provide our children with opportunities in which to play, cultivate friendships and establish their roots. The group is a forum for the exchange of information about parenting and community issues. Parents actively discuss hot topics, arrange playgroups, share activity ideas, find and sell items, discuss childcare…and more. The group offers free online support and information low cost social events and activities for infants, toddlers and their families.
The group participates in an active online message board used for sharing information, seeking advice and on which lively discussions on issues pertinent to parenthood, relationships, health and child development take place. In person meetings are also organized on a weekly basis. During these gatherings parents socialize with one another while the children play. During the summer most of these play groups are held outdoors at select locations in the Bococa community. In addition, guest speakers on pertinent subjects have been invited to join the meetings and offer advice.
During the winter the group organizes low cost classes for infants and toddlers, we arrange small play groups at each other's homes and we meet regularly at select indoor locations.
Thanks to outreach efforts Bococa Parents keeps on growing to include new mothers and fat hers in need of support and friendship for themselves as well as play mates for their children.
