The Carlisle Family Connection (CFC) is a community group that provides resources, activities and support for families with children five years of age and under. The program offers an annual cycle of family events and playgroups. Participation in CFC is a wonderful way to get to know fellow families in Carlisle with young children!



The best way to make sure you don't miss any opportunities with the CFC is to sign up for ALL three CFC sessions (fall, winter and spring) at one time. The full year's registration fee is $36 per family (each individual session is $12 per family). The registration fee covers admission to all events and participation in playgroups for all family members. Registering early for all three sessions allows CFC volunteers to budget accordingly for a fun-packed year.


Events include seasonal parties, educational programs, concerts and outdoor activities. Events are organized by volunteers and are tremendous fun for the kids attending them.

Past event have included:  Fall Kick off Event, Wash a Fire Truck, New Baby Brunch, Pumpkin Painting, Halloween Party, Holiday Party, Valentine's Day Party, Meet up at BB Kidz Klub, Footnotes Family Concert, Spring Egg Hunt, Police & Safety Event, Old Home Day Rest Stop, End of Season Picnic at Great Brook, Clark Farm Guided Visit, Clark Farm Market meetups, Parents’ Night Out, and all-age Summer Playgroup Meetups.


Playgroups allow children to get to know their peers prior to entering kindergarten at Carlisle Public School, while also providing an exceptional resource to parents and caregivers. Age-based playgroups meet in private homes on a monthly/weekly basis (to be determined within each group):
