• What is MOPS? 
    • MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers. We are a local chapter of MOPS International. MOPS provides a caring atmosphere for mothers of young children to find friendship, information and encouragement. 
  • Why MOPS? 
    • Every Mom needs the love and support of friends. At MOPS, our moms have a chance to meet other women experiencing the same issues they are facing each day. MOPS meetings are a great place to get to know other mothers in New Albany and in the surrounding Clark/Floyd Counties who are just like you!
