What is MOPS?

MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers and is an international organization that exists to encourage, equip, and help women become the best moms that they can be! Women who are pregnant or have young children (birth through kindergarten) are all invited to join MOPS.

MOPS provides an opportunity to meet other moms and make the journey of motherhood together. We share our experiences, learn from one another, and support each other. MOPS meetings are a wonderful place to build friendships and have fun with other moms. In other words, it's a playdate for moms!

At each of our meetings, moms enjoy a chance to socialize with other moms. We have a short time for announcements, followed by either a speaker or a creative activity, plus a small group discussion that allows you to get to know other moms more closely.

In addition to meetings, we plan special events such as play groups, "Moms Night Out," and family holiday parties. We also participate in community service activities.

Childcare during all meetings is offered through the MOPPETS program. We provide a fun, nurturing environment for your kids to play and learn while you take a well-deserved break!
MOPS is open to all moms of children through their kindergarten year.

In the MOPPETS classrooms, the children play games, sing songs, listen to stories, create arts and crafts projects, and have a healthy snack.
