What is The Grove?

The Grove is a Membership Club for families, built for kids, designed for adults. With high-end amenities, programming, and a cafe with the best of the best from Charlotte purveyors, we bring an upscale hospitality experience to parenting lifestyle. We cater to families expecting (plenty of newborn education) and have spaces and programming that cater to kids up to ages 7 or 8. 

How do I become a Member?

Application for Membership requires nomination from a current Grove Member. A nomination does not guarantee acceptance. Applications are reviewed monthly by the Membership Committee. If you do not know a current Member for nomination we encourage you to reach out and express your interest.

What if I don't know any current Members?

Though a majority of our Membership is nomination-driven, should you not know anyone, don't fret!  We will set you up with a meeting with someone from Membership to get to know you and start the process.

Do you offer childcare on site?

Our play spaces are always staffed with Grove Counselors, engaging crafts and activities, and our processes are built to encourage independence.  Though we are not a daycare, we do offer a wide range of drop-off programming and encourage adults to enjoy the cafe and adult programming while children are engaged. Should a Member need last-minute child care for the day we are eager to help, we just ask that you reach out to our Grove Concierge (via the app) to arrange.

May I tour The Grove?

Out of respect for our Members, we only offer tours to those sincerely interested in Membership. These are available during the application process.  The best way to see the space is to come as a guest of a Member.

What is The Grove's Social Media policy?

We adhere to a no social footprint policy. Though Members are welcome to take their own photos, we kindly ask for no posting or tagging of interior spaces / Members. 

Membership Commitment:

All Memberships are a minimum 1 year commitment, Members will be alerted 30 days before renewal opportunity and The Grove reserves the right to not renew memberships as we see fit. Memberships can be frozen once during membership, for a maximum of 3 months. Members must be up to date with billing before initiating a freeze.
