What is MOPS?

MOPS stands for mothers of preschoolers, and by preschoolers we mean from pregnancy through the end of kindergarten. 


MOPS connects moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own neighborhoods, to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood — together. We are on a mission to celebrate motherhood!

We build circles of women who love each other like family, because raising tiny humans is beautiful and hard, and having each other to lean on is life-giving. 

This is motherhood, and together we can change the world in all the best ways.

Here at MOPS, we gather and support moms. We believe in the simple but revolutionary idea that remarkable things happen when moms come together, face to face. That’s why we rally women to come together in their own neighborhoods and help each other through this thing called motherhood, one gathering at a time.

Our acronym stands for “Mothers of Preschoolers” because we began in 1973 when a group of moms of young children banded together to share their lives and parenting journeys. Over the past forty-five years, MOPS has expanded our reach to include moms with older kids, partnering with churches and organizations worldwide to equip and encourage moms in more than 60 countries.
