What is MOPS?

MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, a group designed to support mothers with children under school age, conception to age six. MOPS groups provide a friendly and fun place for mothers to relax and connect with other mothers. We socialize, encourage each other, and learn from one another how to handle this challenging season in our lives.

A typical MOPS meeting can include:

  • A time for greeting new mothers
  • A topic relevant to raising a preschooler or a topic applicable to women
  • An opportunity to chat about that month’s topic
  • Refreshments and conversation

Why Should I Join?

If you’re a mother of a preschooler (meaning that you have at least one child age 6 or under), then we believe that MOPS at Riva Trace has something to offer you. Our group provides support, encouragement, activities and fun! We also strive to connect mothers and help them develop meaningful relationships in an understanding environment.
