Information about the Milford Family & Community Network CFCE

  • About Us:

    The Milford Family & Community Network (MFCN) is a Coordinated Family Community Engagement (CFCE) grant that serves families with children from birth to 8 years of age who live in Milford, Hopedale, Bellingham and surrounding towns.  We are a free and universal program providing comprehensive early childhood programs and services of high quality in an environment that promotes the physical, social, emotional and cognitive development of young children.  It also encourages a partnership with parents in supporting their role as their child's most influential teacher.  
    The MFCN is a CFCE grant funded by the MA Department of Early Education and Care and is awarded to Milford Public Schools.
