“Arlene is a treasure.  My family refers to her as everyones grandma, because you feel welcomed by her & encouraged every time.  Watertown Families Together has quality events that nurture the whole family, & we are very lucky to have this resource for our kids."  

Amy K. - Watertown, MA

“Ms. Arlene always made our family feel that the world is right, from this overwhelmed mom to the littlest babe in our family. We love her ways of bringing family members closer to each other, and to other moms, through songs, stories and activities. We ALWAYS look forward to seeing her. If you have a chance to participate in her events/activities, you will know what I'm talking about ”

Yachen C. - Watertown, MA

"My son attended Arlene's network for 4 years until he started preschool. Even then we opted to do fewer days of preschool so we could stay active in the network one day per week. We felt so welcomed by Arlene from the first day. She was always there to help you brainstorm solutions if you were having a challenge with your child; to link you up with someone else who might be able to share an experience that would be helpful; to laugh with you about parenting or to listen while you cried. I don’t think I would be as good of a mom today if I didn’t have those early years as part of the Network. I now have a new baby and am eager to participate in anything Arlene is running since I know my son and I will both benefit from being around her and her wisdom!"

Our Mission

Our Mission

Sometimes parenting takes a village...sometimes it takes that extra bit of support...sometimes it takes getting families together!


Our mission at Watertown Families Together (WFT) organization is to bring that support and families together!


WFT offers families with young children, community events that both educate and entertain.  We know that rich and varied experiences during childhood, as well as beloved parents, play an instrumental role in their child's learning process as they grow into loving, nurturing and lively children.  The family environment is the most powerful influence on a child's social and emotional development and readiness for school.  Although, ensuring that a child receives appropriate nurturing and support, especially during the earliest years, prenatal through preschool, can have its challenges. 


Watertown Families Together is here to offer FREE support to the families and the children of Watertown & the surrounding communities with enriching activities filled with much love and compassion to help make this time a little easier for everyone.
