Bedford Family Connection
The Bedford Family Connection (BFC) is a non-profit, volunteer-run organization which exists as a means to bring families with young children together. The organization has grown over the years from an initial 15 members in 1988 to the current 175 member families from Bedford, Massachusetts, and surrounding towns.
The BFC has a playroom, a toy-filled, bright, open space located downstairs at the First Parish Church at 75 The Great Road, Bedford. The playroom is open every weekday morning from 9:30 to 11:30 and loosely follows the Bedford public school calendar. Members pay $0.50 per child per day; non-members are welcome to try it out for $2.00 per child per day.
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 members’ varied schedules, activities are planned both during the week and on weekends.
A sampling of our most popular family-oriented activities are:
And…all outings aren’t planned just for kids! Evening workshops and Moms' Night Out activities. In 2005, the BFC formed the Working Parents Network, with special activities and networking opportunities during nights and weekends.
The BFC publishes a newsletter and a pre-school directory. The BFC helps to organize playgroups for those members who wish to belong to a small, organized group of similarly aged children.
