Coordinated Family Community Engagement

PACE CFCE Program supports parents as their children's first, best, and most important teachers.

The program includes the communities of New Bedford, Dartmouth, Acushnet, Fairhaven, Freetown, Lakeville, Berkley, Seekonk, Swansea, Dighton, and Rehoboth.

We are a non-profit family support organization that provides FREE comprehensive services.

Our programs include:

  • Weekly Playgroups
  • Music & Movement Activities
  • Early Literacy Story Hours
  • ParentChild+ Home-Based Program

We also provide parent education programs, offer the Ages & Stages Developmental Questionnaire (ASQ), and connect families to resources.

Our goal is to support parents as they guide their children to reach their optimum potential. We have many community partners who share the same goal of strengthening our communities. Funding for the Coordinated Family & Community Engagement Grant (CFCE) is provided by the MA Department of Early Education and Care (EEC).

The CFCE program offers a mix of outdoor and virtual (Zoom) events and activities in addition to prerecorded programs available on our YouTube Channel - Playgroup Pals.

No commitment is required. Pre-registration is encouraged for planning purposes.
