What is MOPS & MOMSnext?
MOPS (Mothers Of Pre-Schoolers) & MOMSnext (moms with school age kids) is a local chapter of MOPS International, and is a community of moms which exists to encourage, support, and equip mothers. We believe moms are world influencers. Better Moms make a better world.
MOPS is for ANY mom who is pregnant or has children birth through Kindergarten. We don’t all have to agree, but we do need each others support since we’re all in the thick of it.
MOMSnext moms with children Kindergarten through High School. You are emerging from the little years, who’s children are school age, and they no longer need their moms for their every need. Moms who still want the community of moms that MOPS provided. A mom who wants a tribe of other moms in the same phase of life who are navigating through the new waters that this stage brings.
Our meetings serve moms who are in the thick of raising the world. We want moms to come and have fun, receive support, and relax! You can expect to meet lots of other moms who are in the same stage of life. You will find great conversation, relevant teaching through speakers or video, and creative activities (*morning group only). We also have several mentor moms who have “been there, done that” and can provide a listening ear and their encouragement. And of course: FOOD!
We have two meeting options:
MOPS & MOMSnext Morning Group meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month starting at 9:30 – 11:30am (September – May).
MOMSnext Evening Group meets on the 3rd Tuesday of the month, 7 – 8:30 pm (September – May).
We have found that our morning group caters more to stay-at-home moms or work-from-home moms. And our evening group caters more to moms with older kids, or working moms. However, all moms are welcome to attend either group! We aim to place each woman at a table with other women in a similar stage of motherhood.
Better moms occasionally need to have a break!
Childcare is currently available for our MORNING meetings only.
MOPS provides childcare in a loving and nurturing preschool style environment. Our MOPS Kids teachers and childcare workers are all background checked and qualified individuals that love our children. Part of maintaining our SAFE, loving and nurturing environment, Sandy MOPS uses Kidcheck to help facilitate this. If you don’t already have a Kidcheck account, you can create one here.
