Here at MOPS, we gather and support moms. We believe in the simple but revolutionary idea that remarkable things happen when moms come together. Our acronym stands for “Mothers of Preschoolers” because we began in 1973 when a group of moms with young children banded together to share their lives and parenting journeys. Over the past 45 years, MOPS has expanded our reach to include ALL moms.  In addition, we are partnering with churches and organizations worldwide to equip and encourage moms in more than 68 countries.

We couldn’t be happier that you’ve found us on this crazy beautiful journey called motherhood. We hope you’ve already connected with a MOPS group or a Mama Meetup™ but if not, use our group search tool to find the right one for you! Every mama nurtures and parents her kiddos differently, and it’s in those differences that we learn from each other. We are better together!

Hear from some of our founders how MOPS came to be in 1973.
