Question:
“How are the playgroups organized?”

Answer:
Each week, The Family Center offers a variety of playgroups organized around a specific theme or for a particular age group. Each playgroup session is generally 6 to 8 weeks long, Children and parents engage in a variety of developmentally appropriate activities, meet other parents and children and have access to parenting information. They take place either at The Family Center, or at another location in the city such as the zoo, park, or other space.

Question:
“How do I register for a playgroup?”

Call The Family Center at 508-979-1927 to pre-register for each of the playgroups offered. Registrations are also accepted after the session has started, providing that there is still room in the group.

Question:
“I don’t live in New Bedford. Can I still participate?”

Answer:
Through the guidelines of our grants, we provide services to residents of New Bedford. At this time we are not able to open our programs to residents of surrounding communities. However, if there are still openings after all New Bedford families have registered, for an activity, we do open to the surrounding communities for a small fee.

Question:
“Is there a charge?”

Answer:
There is no charge for our programs, as we are grant funded. We do, however, appreciate snack donations for playgroups and we also have a “Wish List” for specific items that we use on a regular basis.
