Family and Parents Groups

There are many groups for children, parents and families in the Hamline Midway.   Some target residents of the Hamline Midway neighborhood, while others draw from a larger geographic area but meet in the neighborhood.

Como-Midway La Leche Group
The Como-Midway La Leche Group meets at 7:00pm on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at Hamline Park Building, 1564 Lafond Avenue (enter by parking lot).   Mothers, mothers-to-be, babies and toddlers are invited to attend.   La Leche League provides breastfeeding information through mother-to-mother support.   A lending library on a variety of topics is available.   For more information, contact Heidi at 651-659-9527.

Midway Munchkins Child Care Co-op
Midway Munchkins is a parent-run, low-cost alternative to traditional child care operating in a rented home dedicated exclusively to the child care. Parents undergo background studies and training, create a loving atmosphere for children in a family setting, take turns providing care, and share rent and other responsibilities. Children ages 6 months and up receive care part-time or full-time care Monday through Friday, 8:00am - 5:00pm. A Specialized Infant & Toddler Family Day Care Home license is expected in August 2011.
