“Here at MOPS, we gather moms. We believe in the simple but revolutionary idea that remarkable things happen when moms come together. That’s why we rally women, in their own neighborhoods, to help them become more brave, kind and honest, one gathering at a time.

So, whether you are a soon-to-be mom, first-time mom or seventh-time mom, you are welcome here. Whether you are an adoptive mom, young mom, seasoned mom, foster mom, stepmom or any other type of mom, you are welcome here. Whether you prefer to meet with other moms in a coffee shop, church, park, living room or video chat, we have something for you.” (mops.org)

Mothers of Preschoolers


  • Community: MOPS provides an open, caring, and accepting atmosphere where women can come together to share this important season of life.
    Mentoring: Mature women listen, encourage, and offer information and perspectives gained through experience.
    Practical Instruction:  Presentations focus on areas of common interest, offering inspiration and information that is relevant to the life of a mother.
    Leadership Development: MOPS groups are organized and run by mothers of preschoolers, as well as for mothers of preschoolers. Women who are involved in MOPS gain confidence in their leadership skills through the training and experience they receive from MOPS.
    Discussion: The intimate and accepting atmosphere of a small group offers moms a chance to share their successes, failures, questions, and concerns. It is during these times that a mom realizes that she is not alone, and lifelong friendships are formed.
    Teaching: Topics presented at MOPS meetings celebrate motherhood and meet a mom’s unique needs during this season of life.
    Creative Activities: Through creative projects and presentations, women are encouraged to experience the sense of accomplishment that comes with trying  and finishing new things.

    MOPPETS:
    During MOPS meetings, children are cared for in a program called MOPPETS, where they experience love in a preschool-like setting.
