While we gather together, our children, from infancy to kindergarten, are cared for in well-equipped rooms designed for each age group. Two to three caregivers staff each room. Children aged two and up are instructed in a Bible story and complete a craft. Graham crackers and water are served as snack.
If your child struggles with separation anxiety, we encourage you to speak with a caregiver in the room about your concerns, and then step away and join the other moms. If your child cannot be consoled, you will be contacted. But often a child calms relatively quickly once Mommy makes the first move to confidently entrust her child into the capable hands of the caregivers.
Note that beginning in the 2017-18 year, a MOPS Kids fee will be added to the registration fee to ensure that paid teaching staff is always available. Cost is $20 for one child for the full year, $30 for two, etc.
