F.A.Q.

What is MOPS?
MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers. We are on a mission to celebrate motherhood. We build circles of women who love each other like family, because raising humans is beautiful and hard, and having each other to lean on is life-giving. That’s why we connect moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own cities, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of being a mom. This is motherhood, and together we can change the world in all the best ways.

What happens at a MOPS meeting?
Moms will get to have a delicious buffet breakfast, enjoy either a speaker on relevant topics or a practical craft that even the least crafty can complete, and partake in adult conversations with moms in their community, all while their children are well taken care of in our child care program called MOPPETS.

How much does it cost?
Registration costs:
May 1 – June 21 $25
June 21 – July 21 $32

Group dues are $110 if you pay in full, or make payments ($120 total).
