Year 2 child has good school friend but I don't know the mum, would it be right to leave a note?

I don't know what to ask really!

My child has a seemingly good friend who I've never met. This friend started mid year 1. I collect my daughter from school a couple of times a week but still never see the other child's mum (or dad, come to think of it. It's usually mums there though).

Now, as my daughter talks about the other child a LOT, I'd like to introduce myself. Should I bother? How would you do it? Pop a note in the bag for her teacher to hand to the other child's parents?

I don't want to look strange or cross some kind of parenting line.

Eldest child and I feel I'm still learning the ropes when it comes to school issues!

Why not arrange a play date instead to actually meet them? Not sure why you want to though!

Why dont you just ask your child to take you to her mum?

Or ask the teacher 'who is xxx mum? I would like to meet her'

Because they're friends? It seems odd that they seem good friends but I don't even have a clue who the parents are and wouldn't know how to ask the child over after school.

Maybe I'll just let it go. confused

My year 2 DD was invited via a note in her book bag to a new friend's house. We have recently moved here. The mum had put her phone number on the note so we went from there.

I've just done the same with a different friend for a play this weekend - note to the parent via the girls.

Chumbler how would I arrange a play date without knowing the parents, a number, surname etc?

You'd have to send a note in with your details...

What I meant was, don't bother introducing yourself unless you actually want a play date or something. A random note just saying hello seems strange to me!

Agree no random introductory note needed but an invitation to play is fine.
Or ask the teacher to point out the parent so you can say hello, or the child or your child could point them out,

I would be freaked out to get a note , I don't understand. Why you feel you need to meet the mum.
