What Is MOPS?

MOPS is a grassroots movement that believes moms are world influencers…

We believe that incubating hearts and giving just-because-hugs can change the course of history. That’s why we connect moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own neighborhoods, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood. MOPS groups are rallying women to be more honest, to feel more equipped and to find our identity by journeying alongside one another.

MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, and by preschoolers we mean kiddos from conception through kindergarten. We know it’s a little confusing so let’s just stick with “MOPS.”

MOMSnext is for mothers of school-aged children. As our children enter school new challenges arise but our need for friendship and support still exists. Our MOMSnext group allows moms of older children to find a community to help them navigate through these wonderful and difficult years.

As moms we recognize that many of us live in multiple worlds. We often have school aged children and preschoolers simultaneously. Our combined MOPS and MOMSnext group offers the best of both worlds. As we navigate these years and learn from each other we also learn about topics that help us grow as moms and as women. Please join us at one of our meetings. Your first meeting is free!

We are moms, and we believe that better moms make a better world.
