The Mothers of Malverne (MOMs) began in 1978 when two mothers of preschoolers met and realized that there were others who also felt somewhat isolated and in need of support through the adventures, joys, and difficulties of raising small children. They put an ad in a local newspaper asking to meet other interested mothers. That first MOMs meeting of 18 women was the seed for what has blossomed into the Mothers of Malverne of today. Today the MOMs includes women from many communities in Nassau County.
The MOMs is a club for mothers of young children. It is designed to function as a cooperative support group and social network for mothers as they face the challenges of child rearing.
The MOMs meet on or around the 15th of every month (September through June). Some months we have informal meetings where we discuss upcoming events and parties and just chat and catch up with each other. Some months we have a “moms night out” and get together for dinner, coffee, dessert, or another fun activity. We also have children’s events throughout the year including a Halloween, Christmas and Easter parties. You can also form playgroups with other MOMs members.
