MOPS, or Mothers of Preschoolers, creates community for Northern Virginia moms. We meet every other week in McLean, VA.


Mothers of Preschoolers

MOPS stands for Mothers of Preschoolers (children from birth through kindergarten). We connect moms in Northern Virginia to a community of women who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of motherhood.

This year we will tend the fire in our hearts. 2018-2019 registration is now open.



What Do You Do At MOPS?

We meet on Thursdays from September until early May. At our meetings we hear inspiring messages from speakers and connect through discussions and care groups. MOPS meetings are designed to bring you a morning of rest, fellowship, and education. A typical meeting includes:

Practical Help

Need some inspiration? Most meetings include a speaker who will offer practical insights into the issues that are important to you as a mom.

Personal Mentoring

Meet a Mentor Mom who has been through it all and has great advice and a willing ear.

Time to Chat

At each meeting there will be time to get to know other moms in an accepting small group atmosphere.

Sometimes You’ll Get Crafty

We like to try new things and be creative!

Learn to Lead

MOPS groups are organized and run by mothers. Looking for a way to get involved? There are opportunities to gain leadership skills through the experience provided by MOPS.



MOPS Kids is a special program just for our little ones! While you are enjoying a special morning, your children are enjoying playtime with nurturing caregivers. For older children, this includes stories, crafts, and songs.
