NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - There is now a local Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) group designed with working mothers in mind, thanks to area resident Courtney Mallon, a working mom herself from New Providence.
About a year ago, Mallon went looking for a mom’s group that met at night and couldn’t find one, so she started one for working moms in the Summit, New Providence, Berkeley Heights, Chatham and Watchung area.
“It’s a great way to take a break and connect with other moms with littles who are going through similar things,” said Mallon.
Mothers of Preschoolers -- and by preschoolers, the group refers to children in the womb through elementary school - meet "to encourage, unite and grow together as women and moms." The group meets on the first Wednesday of each month in the Lounge Room at Summit's Central Presbyterian Church. The group's first meeting of the 2017-18 school year will take place October 4, beginning at 7 p.m.
Central Presbyterian Church is located at 70 Maple Street. Those attending are asked to enter the church from Elm Street, through the glass doors.
