What is MOMS Club®?

MOMS Club® stands for "Moms Offering Moms Support."

The International MOMS Club® is an organization that supports stay-at- home Moms. Chapters are created geographically and our chapter covers the Lionville/Exton area and includes all Moms of children attending Uwchlan Hills Elementary school. Any Mom can join the MOMS Club. The international organization was created to support stay-at-home Moms; our chapter is true to this ideal, but also includes many Moms who work part or full-time. They join us for events that fit into their schedule, and we welcome them.

Most MOMS Club activities are DURING THE DAY when you are home with your children and need support. Our favorite activities are the weekly playgroups. We have playgroups for infants up to half-day kindergarteners. These playgroups are a great way for Moms to connect with other Moms who have children the same age. It is also a great way for children who will attend Uwchlan Hills Elementary School to get to know their future classmates BEFORE they even attend the school or for homeschooled children to meet their neighborhood peers. Playgroups aren't the only fun we have, here are more things that we do:

-Holiday Parties
-Lunch Bunches
-Weekly Outings
-Crafts
-Playgroups
-Impromptu Playdates
-Morning Coffee Meetups
-Music Classes
-Moms' Night Out
-Service Projects Benefitting Children


On an international level, the MOMS Club is a non-profit and nondenominational organization with more than 2,000 chapters worldwide. This chapter serves Moms whose children are in the Downingtown Area School District and whose children would be attending Uwchlan Hills Elementary School. To find another chapter, visit the International MOMS Club® website:

We would love to have you join our chapter! You may attend up to two meetings before deciding to join. To sign up you need to fill out the membership application, liability form, and pay a yearly $20.00 fee.

To join please contact our membership VP:

August 2017 Presidents Letter


Hello MOMS Club® of Uwchlan Hills PA,

This summer is flying by! I can't believe that in just a few short weeks many of us will be sending our kids back to school!

Things seem to slow down just a little in our club during the summer months while we enjoy vacations and much needed family time. We still managed to fit in a few exciting activities last month including, Moms Night Out, Morning Coffee, and Art Class at CCAA. In August, we will have Makin' Music back on the Calendar which is always a lot of fun! Don't forget to check Facebook for the latest events!

I would like to see our club continue to grow and be fun! In order for that to happen we need you! We are still looking for our new Administrative VP or Party Committee person/persons, please consider volunteering. If that is not your style, you could open up your home for playgroups or provide a great suggestion for our Activities Coordinator. Even just spreading the word about our club to potential new members would be helpful. Let's all pull to together to improve our awesome club!

Best,
Keri Riley

July 2017 Presidents Letter

Hello MOMS Club® of Uwchlan Hills PA,

I hope everyone is having a nice summer so far!

I wanted to thank last year’s Board, Committee, and playgroup leaders for a great year! Being a mommy to small children can be challenging and even a little lonely at times, it is so nice to have an organization such as ours to offer support to one another. In the time that I have been a member, I have met so many nice moms and have truly enjoyed our time together. My kids have been able to meet friends and develop important social skills. I have even been given the opportunity to step out of the “mommy” role and feel more like an adult at our MNOs. These things have been invaluable to me and that is why I decided to take on the role of President of our chapter. I want to ensure that we continue to support each other and grow.

I would also like to thank our new Board and Committee for taking on their roles. It is these fine people who will keep our club alive and functioning into the new club year! In case you have missed it, here is the official roster:

June 2017 Presidents Letter

Hello MOMS Club® of Uwchlan Hills PA,
I hope you are having a wonderful summer so far! I am still confused as to how it is July already – yowza! I just wanted to take a second and say what a wonderful year I had being the President of this great organization. Thank you all for being so supportive, it has been absolutely incredible getting to know all of you better!

Having been part of the Coatesville MOMS Club before joining us here as the Activity Person, KR, is sure to bring some great new ideas to our club and I know will be a highly capable leader. So a big thank you again to her, as well as to all of our other gals who have volunteered to take on a board or committee role. THANK YOU! We hope to serve you well in the 2017/2018 year!

That said, we are still in search of an Admin VP and two or three folks to help with the Party Committee – if you are interested please let KR know! Also, play group leaders; are you still up for continuing being the leader for your group? Please let KR know.

We had a great June picking strawberries at Highland Orchard, singing songs at St. Martha’s Villa, sampling the beverages at the Suburban Restaurant & Beer Garden MNO and eating pizza, blowing bubbles and trying to stay cool at the End of Year Party at Target Park.
