Requirement for Membership

There is no Bedford residency requirement. We have members from Lexington, Billerica, Concord, Acton, Carlisle, and other nearby towns.

The Bedford Family Connection was founded in 1988 as a volunteer-run, community organization. Our mission is to strengthen our community by nurturing families, fostering friendships and learning through fun activities and enrichment programs for local families with any child age 5 and under.

The BFC provides members with a strengthened sense of community while creating and nurturing important relationships when our children are still young. An additional benefit is the number of lasting friendships it has fostered between families. As a member, you will also enjoy:
•A monthly BFC e-newsletter, which lists BFC events and news, other local family-oriented news/events, the playroom schedule, and members' and sponsors' classified ads
•The BFC Membership Directory
•Discounted admission to the BFC playroom
•Free (or low cost) children's activities every month
•Free (or low cost) parent education workshops every month
•Free (or low cost) special family events and parties 2-3x/year
•Monthly "Mom's Time Out" and "Dad's Corner" events
•Playgroups for similarly-aged children
•Numerous volunteer opportunities within the BFC organization
•Opportunities to participate in local charitable events
