Finding it tough, in our busy DMV area, to meet other new parents? So did Petite D.C. founder Bonnie Lessans, so she set out to create a new way for local parents to connect while getting some great discounted introductions to local vendors providing services for mommy/daddy and me experiences. Petite D.C. is one of the only programs of its kind in the area that restricts participation to only primary care givers, which means you will be meeting other parents versus their nannies (as awesome as they all are).

How it Works
The program works like this: parents pick the category that matches their child’s age group to register for a series of six meet ups that are already scheduled. Activities for these Wednesday events range from casual local coffee hang outs and yoga classes to awesome mini-adventures such as swim classes, parent-kiddo photo sessions and even stroller work-outs. An added perk is that parents who register get special deals on products and services from a variety of local vendors. Score!

Sign Me Up!
Registration for the Spring programs is open now and costs $195 for the six week package, which runs Wednesdays, March 30 through May 4. Petite D.C. also offers Moms Night Outs, which are one-off events at local hot spots so moms can relax and rest (or kick up) their heels a bit.
