My family recently moved to the South Center City area from Brooklyn,NY I am in search of activities for a 13 month old. We can always travel to the park or do swim classes at the YMCA on Christian street, but other than that I haven't found any mommy and me or kid friendly activities. I know about NEST in CC but they are expensive.

We used to live in the city but not in the burbs. Here are a few recs...


1- look for a parents group via facebook. most neighborhoods have something. Wee Wander serves the whole area but has good ideas also.
2- pennsymom is a google group. technically for those who delivered at Pennsylvania hospital but nobody is checking. you might get good ideas posting there.
3- some of our favorite spots in Philly include: Mamas Wellness Joint (yoga including toddler & me), little theater baby wordplay, InMovement, Smith Playground (great cheap fun with a toddler), dog park and playground on the schuylkill banks. there is a fit4mom exercise program that is also over on the river. If you are close to the river you are also close to 76 and can easily get up to NW Philly which has the Wissahickon which is fun for exploring.

When I was a young Mom I found some of my first friends at our local libraries storytime programs. Many of the other Mom's were just like me - looking for something to do with their kids and looking for adult friends. Most libraries have programs starting with babies. Best of all, most programs are free!

I believe the library at 7th/Carpenter/Passyunk has a program like this

Every library has children's programs. Use your libraries - you're paying for them! My library has new books, e-books you can borrow, downloadable books, Wii/x-box 360, etc. games to borrow, classes to attend, entertainment, etc.
