As moms ourselves we understand that life is about finding balance and nurturing our minds and spirits as well as our bodies. By joining a Fit4Mom Village Playgroup and Events Club in your area, you will not only enjoy fun and playful activities with your child, but will build a tight community of like minded moms to share advice, tips and most importantly laughter.
Fit4Moms' Club, powered by Stroller Strides, consists of three essential components:
1. Free Playgroups (once per week) Our goal is to provide meaningful experiences for both mom and child(ren). We facilitate uplifting supportive conversation for mom and developmental activities for children that emphasize wonder, discover and creativity.
2. Moms’ Nights Out (once per month) This is a time for moms! The goal is to provide an activity to allow your moms group to re-discover adult conversation and personal passions.
3. “Moms with a Mission” Our goal is to provide you with a platform to help better the community where you live and play. We organize and inspire members to participate in activities focused on giving back to children, families and the environment.
You can find more information about these events and RSVP on our Facebook page at Stroller Strides of Fayetteville, NC
Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is an early literacy program that mails age-appropriate books to registered children on a monthly basis. The books are mailed in the child's name in an effort to create a sense of excitement about getting new books. Children can receive the books from birth to their fifth birthday, regardless of family income. DPIL is often coordinated through a local nonprofit organization, such as a library. The sponsoring organization selects a geographic area to target for book distribution and raises the funds to cover the cost of the books. Parents can also register children online.
Early Head Start (EHS) is a comprehensive, flexible child development and parenting education program delivered through home visitation, center‐based services to children and families, or a combination of both delivery modes. Parent‐child activity groups may also be part of the program.

Providers also give parenting support and education, and assist families with transitioning their children into Head Start or other preschool programs when the child reaches age three. Family advocacy, resource and
referral to other community services are also provided.
