                                           What Is MOPS?
MOPS is an international organization existing for Mothers of Preschoolers to relax and enjoy the company of other moms who can relate to the stresses of mothering.  Our MOPS group includes childcare for your little ones so they can play, learn and be creative.

                                             Why MOPS?
                             “Better Moms Make a Better World”
 Moms often feel tired, overwhelmed, and lonely.  A MOPS group offers opportunity for moms to build friendships with other moms. We spend time getting to know each other through conversation, socializing, conversation, creative activities, conversation and discussions on topics of interest and did we mention conversation?
 
“MOPS exists for every mom - urban, suburban, and rural moms,
stay-at-home and working moms, teen, single and married moms  -
moms with different lifestyles who all share a similar desire to be
the very best moms they can be!”
