Center for Families Playgroups
Drop-in Playgroups are fun, free groups for parents and caregivers from Cambridge with children 15 months-5 years old.
Playgroups meet weekly and each week Playgroup Leaders bring lots of toys, activities, and games for parents/caregivers and children to play with together.
Community Playgroups are parent-child groups that families must register for and run in 8 week series, three times per year (Fall, Winter, Spring).
Babytime Playgroups are for parents/caregivers with infants 0-15 months and meet weekly, year round.
All Playgroups are held in schools and youth centers around Cambridge.

Community Engagement Team
The CET, a multi-agency collaborative, reaches out to underserved Cambridge families and connects them to community events and resources, develops community leaders, and supports agencies in working with a diverse community.
A large component of this effort is hiring and training community members (American Born Black, Bangladeshi, Brazilian, Ethiopian, Haitian, Somalian and Spanish and Portuguese speaking) as outreach workers to reach out to and engage underserved families in early childhood activities and services.
