Our activities

   Playgroups: MADS is all about playgroups! Our Facebook group provides a platform for parents to find children of similar age groups and geographic location. Playdates are hosted by members  and coordinated through the Facebook group and/or private messages. We encourage members to connect based on their interest, with a special focus on pregnant moms and stay at home dads. 

  Working Moms: oriented to all parents concerned about the balance between raising children and working outside the home whether you currently work, used to work, are considering going back to work on a full-time, part-time, or short-term intermittent basis. This group coordinates yaya-led playdates and social events for working parents. Please visit the working moms Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/136558566419171/

     Lending libraries: we maintain lending ‘libraries’ (children’s winter clothes and kid-sized tables and chairs for parties). For more information contact tablesandchairs@madsmanila.com  

Our history

MADS was founded in 1994 to provide expat parents with support, networking opportunities and a community during their families' posting in Manila. Until 2016, MADS was a membership fee-based group which organized annual holiday parties, published a monthly magazine, maintained a number of lending libraries, and established a secure website with closed topic forums for members. In response to changes in Manila's expat community, MADS recently streamlined its activities and transitioned to a closed Facebook group, allowing its members to have free access to the group and its remaining activities. 

Not on Facebook? You can still join MADS! contact president@madsmanila.com for more details.
