Pre-Registration for 2015/2016!

UPDATE: Pre-registration is now closed.  We will begin regular registration again in August.  To let us know of your interest you can fill out the short form at www.tinyurl.com/cvmopsinterest.  We already have a waiting list for some of the baby and toddler MOPPETS rooms, so get on the interest list so you can be near the top!  We want to welcome as many moms as possible to our group this fall. Thanks!

It is time to pre-register for the next MOPS year!  We will be accepting registration renewal for current members during April.  During May any mom may register, so invite your friends!  We will close pre-registration on May 26, 2015.  Our regular registration will re-open on August 1.  We will begin a waiting list as soon as each MOPPETS childcare room is full.  After you register you will receive a message to confirm that there is space for your children in our program.

The first step to register is fill out our online registration form.  (Link no longer available.)

In addition to filling out our online pre-registration form, each member needs to print and turn in an online registration supplement.  You may turn it in at a MOPS meeting in April or May, or you can mail it to Castro Valley MOPS (address is below).  We will have a few printed forms at our meetings if you are not able to print at home. 
 
The cost for early registration (on or before May 26) is $107 for the whole year.  $23 of this goes to MOPS International and is NOT refundable, but can be transferred to another MOPS group.  Paying by the year gives you 4 free meetings, including our always free spring tea meeting.  You may also choose to pay by the trimester - each trimester will be $35 (five meetings per trimester).  So to pre-register if paying by trimester you will owe $58 now, $23 of which is not refundable (then $35 in the winter and $35 next spring).  You can bring a check made out to Redwood Chapel to our MOPS meetings in April or May. Or you can  mail your check to:

Castro Valley MOPS
Redwood Chapel
19300 Redwood Road
Castro Valley, CA 94546

Regular registration begins August 1, and those costs will be $116 for the year (3 free meetings) or  $60 for the fall trimester only (then $35 each for winter and spring trimesters).  $25 of this goes to MOPS International and is NOT refundable, but can be transferred to another MOPS group.

Scholarships to attend MOPS are available.  If you need a scholarship please fill out the scholarship form and turn in when you submit your online registration supplement. 

Registering for MOPS International and paying dues will secure you and your children a place in Castro Valley MOPS and our MOPPETS childcare program.  MOPS International membership is required in order to join our local MOPS group.  Membership includes a subscription to the MOPS magazine, a bracelet, A Fierce Flourishing guidebook, postcards, an art print, music downloads, a weekly inspirational email, exclusive discount offers, and a few surprises!  Local MOPS dues provide for craft supplies, special publications, hospitality gifts and decorations, brunch supplies, speaker fees, leadership training, and MOPPET worker appreciation gifts.  We have fundraisers to help defray these expenses and keep our dues low.

We look forward to seeing you at MOPS in the 2015/2016 year as we experience A Fierce Flourishing together!
