MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) is an international organization with chapters throughout the United States and in 30 countries. MOPS believes that “better moms make a better world”. Our goal at VFMC’s MOPS is to ensure that mothers feel loved, encouraged and supported during this rewarding yet challenging time of their lives so that they may be equipped to nurture and care for themselves, their families and communities. Our intent is to provide a space where mothers can take a break, develop strong friendships, and learn from one another.

The theme for the 2016-2017 year is “We are the Starry Eyed” . Looking up at the night sky we can see the works of our Maker in heaven reminding us that in the darkness there is light guiding us. It is a path of bread crumbs for the traveler who stands at the threshold of the unknown, reminding us that someone has gone ahead of us and has left hints to help guide us home.

Who can join MOPS?

Any mom with a child under 6 can join MOPS. Pregnant moms are welcome too.

When are the meetings?

The meetings take place on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month from 9:30 to 11:45 am. The meetings are divided into semesters with Fall Semester from September to December and Spring Semester from January to June.
