Do you have a favorite playgroup in WNY that isn’t listed?  Contact me.


  1. MOPS meets in Niagara Falls, near Lewiston, at St. George (1073 Saunders Settlement Rd, Niagara Falls, NY 14305). We meet 9:15-11:15am on the 1st & 3rd Tuesdays of the month during the school year (following the Niagara Falls School District for cancellations and holidays). Our first 2015 meeting is September 15th.

  2. I’m also a Grandma in Cheektowaga. I babysit my almost 3 year old grandson on Fridays. Wondering if there are groups/ activities or someone with similar age children interested in getting together on Fridays.

  3. I’m not sure if MOPS allows it or not. If your specifically asking about MOPS you may want to call the location and ask first. Some of the other playgroups most likely allow grandmothers/caregivers, I would think. My recommendation would be go ahead and either call ahead or visit and see what they say!

  4. I am a grandma who babysits for my 16 mo old granddaughter every Tues & Thurs. Would like to join playgroup for her benefit & socialization. Do they allow grandmas or is it strictly for moms & their kid(s)? I live in Pendleton & can’t find anything on these days in her age range.

  5. I am a part of the MOPS group at Resurrection Life Church in Cheektowaga. We meet on the first and third Thursday’s at 9:30am!
