I want to welcome you to the Early Childhood Office of the Westwood Public Schools and Coordinated Family and Community Engagement Program! (CFCE). The CFCE program is a state funded grant from the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care (EEC). The CFCE program serves as a resource hub for families and early educators of children ages birth through eight. We strive to strengthen families and support parents as their child's first teacher by offering free family-focused programs, resources, and services that enhance growth and learning. We offer a variety of literacy focused activities, and family playgroups throughout the community. Families may access resources, referrals and parent education on topics related to child development. We strive to support early educators to provide high quality programming with access to training and technical assistance and opportunities to share best practices. I welcome your call or email and look forward to working with you.
