What is MOPS?
MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) is an international organization for all moms of infants through kindergartners, providing an opportunity to meet other moms and make the journey of motherhood together. FBCSA MOPS exists to equip, encourage, develop, and bring moms what they want and need.
When does MOPS meet?
FBCSA MOPS will meet every second and fourth Thursday from 9:30 am to 12:00 pm. Our first meeting will be September 14th. What will I do at MOPS? MOPS has insightful speakers, helpful demonstrations, small mom-to-mom discussion groups, fun crafts, creative activities, great food, and relaxing fellowship, all of which is under the guidance of Mentor Moms to help you through the Journey of Motherhood.
Is childcare provided during MOPS?
Yes! Quality, loving childcare is provided for children 3 months to five years of age, with a special class just for older home educated children, during the MOPS meeting time. MOPS Kids, as it is called, is designed for children to engage in developmentally appropriate play and educational activities so moms can feel free to enjoy the MOPS activities and meetings. We will provide snacks during your child's time in MOPS Kids (in all classes over age 12 mos.)
Is there a fee?
The MOPS fee for 2017-2018 is $60 for the fall semester and $60 for the spring semester. This fee covers the costs of a MOPS International Membership (a requirement) and supplies needed throughout the year.
