Looking for a way to connect with other Davis parents? Davis has several groups specifically for parents to connect and offer support, friendship, and information. 

MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)
Meets MONDAYS during the school year from 9:30-11:15

First meeting/Open House Mon. Aug 30th at 10 am.
UCC, 312 Mace Blvd

 MOPS is for all mothers with at least one child not yet in school and expectant mothers. MOPS celebrates motherhood and exists to meet the needs of all moms, recognizing that the years from infancy through kindergarten are foundational in a mother-child relationship, filled with unique needs & challenges. Davis MOPS welcomes all women, from those currently pregnant to moms who have children in preschool, from Yolo County, Dixon, Winters, Sacramento and beyond.

Located at:
University Covenant Church,
315 Mace Boulevard, Davis 95618.
Friends and drop-ins are always welcome!

(Membership fee required for activities, snacks, etc)
Please email for more information.

Meets TUESDAYS 10 am to 11am.
In the Co-Op Teaching Kitchen building, 537 G Street (Kitty Corner to the Co-Op)

All parents of little ones welcome.
The group starts off with a brief topic/presentation and flows from there. Previous topics have included babywearing, natural first aid, and biking with babies. Delicious snacks are provided as well as a huge blanket for which to put the babies that like the floor :).

It's free and informal.
For questions contact: Lesley Nelson

Meets WEDNESDAYS 8:30-10
 (Because life with a newborn makes being anywhere on time challenging, arriving anytime between 8:30 and 10 is perfectly acceptable)

Come to a warm, relaxing environment and share or just listen. Learning to be a parent can be an enjoyable but uncertain time. Gain support by sharing with and learning from other new parents who are experiencing the same challenges as you. The group is lead by an experienced and perinatal counselor and group facilitator who is also a mom.

All parents of babies from birth to 5 months welcome.

Mother & Baby Source
714 Second St. Davis

Organizer: Carissa Lewis
Co-Organizers: Tressa Beheim
This is a great group of moms from all over Yolo and Solano County with babies and tots ranging from newborns to 4 years old. Some moms are stay at home. Some moms work at home or in an office. But all the moms have something in common: motherhood and a want for community.

Their calendar is packed with new ideas and ways to meet other moms. They have a regular stroller fitness walk, schedule play dates at least once a week, and even give moms a break with our new Babysitters Club. Once a month they host a Mom's Night Out (MNO) which is either dinner, a movie, pedicure/manicure, etc. It is a good way to really spend some time with the others and just be women. They also like to host a Family Dinner Night once a month for all the families to get together. What a great opportunity for dads to get involved.

($12 annual membership fee required for activities, snacks, etc)

If you are interested in joining or checking them out they offer a free 30 day membership, contact the organizer or go through the 'Join' process.
