Like to take your school aged children out to eat with you at a fine dining or a large social event but you’re a little afraid how they might behave?

Sam Sifton, Food Editor for The New York Times states, ““Kids are awesome and they should be part of the dining experience,” says Sifton. “Anytime we go to a restaurant, we are entering into a social contract with everyone else in the restaurant. I’m not trying to ruin your good time, and you’re not trying to ruin mine. It’s important to model that behavior, so kids can accept the social contract and have a good time.” Introducing your child to proper table manners and dining etiquette today can help build their confidence in any social settings tomorrow!

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

 

Registration

 

The best way to make sure you don't miss any opportunities with the CFC is to sign up! The registration fee is $36 per household per annual cycle. The registration fee covers admission to all events and participation in playgroups for all family members. All registrants will be included in announcements emailed by the Carlisle Recreation Department regarding the CFC. Registering early allows CFC volunteers to budget accordingly for a fun-packed year.

 

Events

 

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

 

Previous events 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

 

Playgroups allow children to get to know their peers prior to entering kindergarten while also providing exceptional connections for parents and caregivers. Age-based playgroups meet in private homes on a monthly/weekly or impromptu basis (to be determined within each group):

 

  • Blue Herons: birthdays from September 2018 through August 2019, Kindergarten class of 2024
  • Black Bears: birthdays from September 2017 through August 2018, Kindergarten class of 2023
  • Red Foxes: birthdays from September 2016 through August 2017, Kindergarten class of 2022
  • River Otters: birthdays from September 2015 through August 2016, Kindergarten class of 2021
  • Wild Turkeys: birthdays from September 2014 through August 2015, Kindergarten class of 2020

 

* If you have/will have a child/children born September 2019 through August 2020, you will be eligible to register starting September 2020. This new playgroup will be the Black-capped Chickadees. Please email us at and join our CFC Facebook group online at www.facebook.com/groups/CarlisleFamilyConnection/ so that you do not miss out on upcoming announcements and events, including our New Baby Brunch in September 2020.
