What is MOPS of Acadiana?

MOPS is a grassroots movement that believes moms are world influencers. We also believe that nurturing hearts and giving just-because-hugs can change the course of history. That’s why we connect moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own neighborhoods, who meet together to laugh, cry, and embrace the journey of motherhood. MOPS groups are rallying women to be more honest, to feel more equipped, and to find our identity by journeying alongside one another.

MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers, and by preschoolers we mean kiddos from birth through kindergarten. We know it’s a little confusing, so let’s just stick with “MOPS.”

We are moms, and we believe that better moms make a better world.

What does MOPS of Acadiana do?

As a group, we meet once a month at The Open Door to chat, learn, discuss, and connect. During this time, our children are learning, growing, and playing in MOPPETS with a great curriculum designed especially for them. At these meetings, we will discuss all types of topics relevant to moms of preschoolers from discipline to encouraging one another when times are hard. Beyond our monthly meetings, we connect on a personal level through weekly play dates, moms’ night-outs, and MOPS After Dark.

Play dates are a great time to hang out with other moms and their kids. It is a chance to get out of the house and let your kids connect and play too. Play dates are at member’s homes and in public locations like the zoo or the park.

Moms’ Night-Outs are once-a-month opportunities for you to have a little fun, not as mom, just as you! This is a time when no one will be tugging on your shirt or screaming “mom” one more time! Nights-Out are refreshing and renewing for all of us.

MOPS After Dark is a special time once a month when we gather at a local sweet shop and take time to dig a little deeper into that month’s topic. Our MOPS After Dark leader will be there to facilitate discussion and lead us to a deeper understanding of our topic.
