Playtime Pals Playgroup

Welcome to Playtime Pals!

Our activities cover many areas of the Columbia Midlands but are primarily centered around the Irmo, Ballentine and Chapin areas. We do however also regularly host events in Lexington, Downtown Columbia, and the West Columbia area. We normally have at least three to four outings per week, but often more! We try hard to keep our event calendar full and interesting with play dates designated for non-walkers, 12-18 month, different age sibling groups, toddlers, and preschoolers as well as events for the entire group to enjoy together. “Mom/Dads only” meetups are also available including an ongoing monthly book club, mother’s morning out and different “Parent’s night out” events as we hope to continuously foster a network of friendships for both our members as well as for our children.Whether you are new in the area, or are a long standing “local”, you are welcome here!


Mommy & Chill

The purpose of our group is for ladies with infants/newborns to be able to meet new Mom friends with babies that are similar in age. Our oldest is almost a year and our youngest is still in her Mommy’s belly! This group is a judgement free zone where we can get together to take Mommy and Me classes or to just hang out with friends and just talk about life while also giving you the opportunity to get out of the house! We look forward to meeting new people and making lasting friendships! You can find us at and also on Facebook at
