MOPS Legana – for Mothers Of Pre-Schoolers
MOPS stands for Mothers Of Pre-Schoolers, and by pre-schoolers we mean littlies from birth through to kindergarten. Every mum of a pre-schooler is welcome at MOPS! We’re a group of unique mums… stay at home mums…single mums…church mums…married mums…working mums…non-religious mums… but we all have something in common: like you, we’re all enjoying the precious first years with our babies – as well as facing all the long nights and hard work that comes with them! We believe that mums have the most important job in the world and that to be the best mums we can be, we need to be nurtured and refreshed ourselves. So MOPS offers mums time-out from our children to find friendships and support, to learn about parenting and relationships, to enjoy some fun and creativity… and even drink a cuppa while it’s still hot!
Each fortnight we learn about something different, sometimes from a qualified professional like a child health nurse or first aid officer, sometimes from DVDs presented by MOPS International, or from local ladies, further down the road of motherhood, with experience to share. Then we get to show our creative flair by completing a simple craft. Perhaps something for our kids to play with, maybe a tasty no-cook treat, or something special for us to keep. Towards the end of each meeting, we have the chance to share our own thoughts as we discuss the morning’s topic together over morning tea.
While mums enjoy MOPS, our pre-schoolers (0-5 years) are lovingly cared for in the room next door, in a program of fun and learning just for them. In MOPS Kids, children can enjoy indoor and outdoor play, story time and craft. All our carers hold current “Working With Vulnerable People” registrations. Small babies may stay with Mum.
