New to MOPS?

If you’re new to Solana Beach MOPS, welcome! We look forward to meeting you! Below is some helpful information:

WHAT TO DO & EXPECT AT OUR FRIDAY MEETINGS:

  1. We will be meeting outdoors on the Solana Beach Presbyterian Church campus under the white tent on the lower campus in Parking Lot 3. Please make sure to park in the Upper Parking lot (the parking loop) as the lower parking lots (Lots 3 & 4) are reserved for the SBPC preschool parents for drop-off and pick-up. See Solana Beach Presbyterian Church campus map below.

  2. Take your child(ren) to MOPPETS (aka childcare). MOPPETS drop-off begins at 8:50am so that you may get to the MOPS meeting at 9am. Sign your child in and make sure they get a nametag (noting any allergies). Please be sure that all of their belongings are labeled when you drop them off. (If your child is six months or younger, they may stay with you in the meeting, children over the age of 6 months of age must have alternate care/cannot attend in-person table gatherings/meetings).  
  3. Head on over to the white tent south of Debin Hall, find your table, and enjoy the meeting! Help yourself to some delicious hot breakfast and yes, coffee! Meet some new ladies, check out the welcome and/or resource tables, and prepare for the meeting!
  4. Pick up your children promptly by 11:30am. This is a great help to our childcare workers. If you have to catch up with someone after the meeting, please do so after you have picked up your child(ren).

MOPS LINGO:

DGL (Discussion Group Leader) = Each table will have a DGL that facilities group discussion, organizes table responsibilities and events, cares for moms, and communicates feedback to their Steering Committee.

MOPPETS = Childcare

MENTOR MOM = Each table will have a Mentor Mom. They openly share their own experiences as mothers, offer support, and bring some much-needed perspective to discussion. They are all members of Solana Beach Presbyterian Church.

MNO (MOMS’ NIGHT OUT) = Fun evening events that are held periodically throughout the year to give moms a break and time to hang out with each other!


as a MOPS member:

MOPS is run by moms, for moms. Each of us play an important part in making MOPS happen. There are two “responsibilities” for every MOPS member:

  1. Bringing breakfast: This year, your table will partner with another table to provide and serve food three times over the year. Details will be provided by your DGL.
  2. Serving in MOPPETS: While Moms will not be serving in classrooms in the fall due to COVID-19, moms may serve in the spring. If this occurs, one mom from each table will serve at each meeting. Typically every mom in MOPS will spend 1 hour and 30 minutes in MOPPETS twice per year, once per semester. Details will be provided by your DGL.

If you have any questions, please email sbpcmops@gmail.com and we will get back to you ASAP. See you Friday!
