Membership
Information

Kingergroup membership is open to any parent or caregiver (i.e. nanny, grandparent, etc.) with a child(ren) age 5 or younger--infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. Expectant parents are also welcome to join! Membership is not limited to Southborough residents; we welcome members from neighboring towns as well. 

 

There are a few membership levels available to suit the needs and availability of each individual family. Please review the options listed here to determine which one may be the best fit for you. 

Membership dues have increased slightly since last year. Increased dues will allow us to offer more events at no cost to members and/or to subsidize the cost of some events to make them more affordable. Kindergroup is a membership-sponsored organization, so all  playgroups, field trips, and social events are paid for by member dues and ticket sales, as applicable. Kindergroup only receives sponsorships for larger annual community events such as Santa Day, the Turkey Trot, and the Easter Egg Hunt. 

Reduced membership dues are available for families experiencing a hardship. Please reach out to the Treasurer at kindergroup.treasurer@gmail.com to coordinate. All inquiries for reduced dues will be strictly confidential. 

 

PLEASE NOTE: As of April 1, dues payments are suspended until next membership year. You are welcome to register as a new member but there is no need to pay dues for the remainder of the 2023-24 year.
