About Our Playgroups


    Playgroups help parents meet other parents with similar age children (birth to 60 months). Parents begin to network and share their parenting concerns and celebrations. Parents and children interact with each other in a safe, developmentally appropriate environment in which literacy is supported through story and circle time.  

    We offer a variety of playgroups:

    • Weekday morning and afternoon playgroups in Milford, Hopedale, and Bellingham
    • Drop-in Playgroups 

    The facilitator will open the door at the start of each playgroup - please wait outside.

    Playgroups meet at our Playcenter, located at the Milford Catholic Elementary School, 11 East Main Street, unless noted otherwise.  For parking information, and how to find our entrance, please see our directions page.


    Drop-In Playgroups (2019-2020):

    Mondays from 3:30 to 5:00 pm  

    *Session I begins 9/30/19 and ends on 1/13/20 (No groups on 10/14, 11/11, 12/23, or 12/30/19)

    Registration is NOT required for drop-in playgroups, however, the group is limited to the first 11 children to arrive each day. To allow us to accommodate as many families as possible, please attend no more than one playgroup per week, unless there are still tickets in the folder 15 minutes after group has started.  

    15 minutes before the scheduled start time, an easel is placed outside of the Milford Playcenter Door.  A folder on the easel contains 11 tickets.  When you arrive, please take one ticket for each of your children.  Please wait outside the building for the facilitator to open the door at the start of each playgroup.

    If the group is full, the facilitator will place a "STOP" sign on the easel, and you will need to try another day!


    Registered Playgroup Schedule (during 2019-2020 school year):
