Chelsea MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) is a faith-based group that strives to nurture mothers of children ages 0-5. We provide resources, support, and social connection for moms during this foundational time in the mother-child relationship. We meet twice monthly on Friday mornings (9am-11am), from September through May, at Chelsea First United Methodist Church, 128 Park Street in Chelsea. In addition to meetings, we publish monthly newsletters, reach out to moms via the internet, and sponsor a number of events in the Chelsea community including Mom2Mom Sales, Chelsea Education Expo, and the children’s booth at the Chelsea Farmer’s Market. Our members include moms from Chelsea, Grass Lake, Dexter and surrounding communities.
Our MOPPETS program provides care for children ages 6 month through kindergarten. Infants younger than 6 months remain with their moms during the meeting time. While mothers attend the MOPS meeting, the children enjoy a program designed to meet their needs. The children are divided into age groups and are involved in planned activities that provide social growth and spiritual enrichment. Games, stories, crafts and play enhance their physical and creative development. There is no fee for children to participate in the MOPPETS program, so we depend on volunteer child caregivers to provide this essential service to the moms and preschool children in the Chelsea community.
We hope that you will consider becoming a MOPPETS child caregiver! Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
