The Bedford Family Connection is an active parenting group for families with children ages 0-5 in Bedford and surrounding communities.
The BFC provides many opportunities throughout the year for member families to meet each other, socialize, and have fun with our kids. In order to accommodate membersí varied schedules, activities are planned both during the week and on weekends.
Some of our most popular family-oriented activities include potluck dinners; evening story times; trips to various farms, zoos, nature reserves, and playgrounds; sports, concerts, and other organized activities; a fire truck wash; behind-the-scene tours of local businesses; a springtime egg hunt; and the Halloween party.
One of the most visible attractions of the BFC is its popular playroom. The BFC Playroom is located downstairs at the First Parish Church, 75 Great Road (use Elm Street entrance), Bedford, Massachusetts. It is open every weekday morning from 9:30 to 11:30 and loosely follows the Bedford public school calendar. BFC members pay $0.50 per child; non-members pay $2 per child per day.
The BFC Playroom is a toy-filled, bright, open space offering a warm, informal atmosphere where children can play together while parents and caregivers supervise and chat. In addition to a variety of toys, books, and puzzles, the playroom offers some basic craft supplies (coloring supplies, PlayDoh), and a carpeted open floor space for imaginative play. Special craft days and other events are scheduled monthly at the playroom.
BFC membership benefits include a monthly newsletter; discounted admission to the BFC playroom; childrenís activities, special events, and parties throughout the year; parenting workshops; monthly Momís Night Out events; help with starting small, organized playgroups of similarly aged children; a Preschool directory to assist members in researching preschools and daycare; opportunities to volunteer in the BFC organization and participate in local charitable events.
Beyond the obvious benefits of joining and participating in the BFC is the number of friendships it has fostered between families. The BFC provides members with a strengthened sense of community while creating and nurturing important relationships while our children are young.
Yearly membership dues are $20/per family.
