We are a dual-chartered group including both MOPS and MOMSnext moms. A typical meeting includes practical teaching through speakers, demonstrations and videos. We also include the occasional craft to spark our creative side. Plus, there's usually food... food you can enjoy and not have to share bites with anyone else! But more important, you'll get to have honest conversations with other moms who understand the joys and frustrations of motherhood. 

 

Childcare (Moppets) provided in a preschool-style environment. All volunteers are background checked to DCFS standards.
