Our MOPS KIDS childcare program is so excited to have the privilege of caring for your kiddos while you're in the MOPS meetings! While in MOPS KIDS  your child(ren) will have the opportunity to play with other children, learn a Bible-based lesson, enjoy snacks, sing songs & complete fun crafts.

Each MOPS KIDS classroom is staffed with a Room Leader & a team of childcare workers. Children are divided into classes based on age. Our MOPS KIDS classrooms are as follows:
  1. "The Very Hungry Caterpillars" -- ages 8 weeks* to 12 months
    *Children younger than 8 weeks are welcome to stay with you in the MOPS meetings.
  2. "The Itsy Bitsy Spiders" -- age 1
  3. "The Runaway Bunnies" -- age 2
  4. "Where the Wild Things Are" -- ages 3 & up
If you feel your child would be better served by a class that doesn't match his or her age group, please talk to our MOPS KIDS staff & we'll be happy to work with you! We want your child to love their time in MOPS KIDS!

MOPS KIDS Enrollment

In order to best serve your children & keep class sizes manageable, our MOPS KIDS space is limited. We ask that your children be pre-registered in MOPS KIDS before they attend so that your child's place is reserved. Indicate each child you wish to enroll on your enrollment form. Enrollment is done on a first-come, first-serve basis.

MOPS KIDS Policies

  • 10-Minute Rule: If your child has been crying for 10 minutes, a member of our MOPS KIDS staff will come notify you. At that point, you can evaluate what is best for your child & choose whether to allow your child to remain in the classroom. If you choose for your child to remain in the classroom & he/she continues crying for an additional 10 minutes, we will ask you to intervene.
  • Labeling: Please label ALL your child's belongings before you arrive. Please don't bring toys, as MOPS cannot be responsible if they are damaged or lost. If your child needs to bring a favorite "lovey," please make sure it's labeled. If you forget to label your child's belongings, our MOPS KIDS staff may use a sticker label with your child's name.
  • Beverages: We do not provide beverages in MOPS KIDS  If you would like your child to have a drink, please bring one. Only clear juice (such as apple juice) or water is allowed in sippy cups. Please don't bring milk or dark-colored beverages in your child's cup.
  • Snacks: Snacks will be provided during each MOPS KIDS meeting. If your child has a special diet, please bring a snack for him/her, indicate this under the "Special Instructions" section of your child's name tag, & tell the Room Leader when dropping your child off in the classroom. 
  • Potty Training: If your child is potty-trained & will be attending one of our younger classrooms, please indicate it on the MOPS KIDS sign-in sheet & under "Special Instructions" on your child's nametag. Please also tell your child's Room Leader. If your child is not FULLY potty-trained, please put your child in a pull-up or diaper during the MOPS meetings. "Fully potty-trained" means NO accidents.
  • Diapers: Please use disposable diapers during the MOPS meetings & bring an adequate supply for the morning. 
  • Bottles: If your child will need a bottle during the MOPS meeting, please prepare it before dropping your child off. Also provide detailed feeding instructions to the Room Leader when you drop off your child in the classroom. 
  • Discipline: As mothers, we're all familiar with the spirited behavior of children & our MOPS KIDS program embraces this. In order for all children to enjoy a loving & safe environment, however, we do have a Discipline Policy available upon request.
  • Medication & Sickness: MOPS KIDS staff does not dispense medication (including Tylenol) to children. You may come to your child's classroom & give medication if necessary.

    Please do not bring your child to MOPS KIDS if they have any of the following symptoms. If your child experiences any of these during the meeting, you'll be notified & your child will be removed from the MOPS KIDS classroom. 
      1. Fever of 100 degrees or higher 
      2. Vomiting during the last 24 hours
      3. Diarrhea
      4. Severe coughing
      5. Rashes or unusual spots on skin
      6. Pink-eye or abnormal eye discharge
      7. Presence of lice
      8. Any communicable disease


We want your child to have a wonderful MOPS KIDS experience! If you have questions or concerns about our MOPS KIDS program, please contact Tamara Merriwether, MOPS KIDS Coordinator.
