Mothers of

Preschoolers

Join the warm and inspiring group of Mothers of Preschoolers for our every other Wednesday morning meetings at St. Paul's Church (471 Mansfield Avenue).

MOPS is about celebrating motherhood, meeting needs and making connections through relationships with other mothers of preschoolers.

A MOPS morning (9:15 to 11:30 a.m.) includes a buffet breakfast followed by a speaker who will inspire moms in topics relating to womanhood, marriage, child rearing and relationships from a spiritual perspective.

Discussion follows in small groups where each mom is free to share her joys and struggles with other moms who truly understand in a non-judgemental environment. Finally, a craft time promotes a sense of accomplishment through creative expression. MOPS also offers "MOPPETS," a childcare program for little ones which provides loving, quality childcare for infants through age 6. For more information about MOPS, contact Meg Newton at 203-353-1848.
