Welcome to Early Childhood Family Education and
School Readiness!


We provide parent education, together with early childhood education, for parents and their children aged birth to kindergarten enrollment.  This also includes expectant parents.  Parents and children participate in classes, parent discussion groups, home visits, or special events.  We are part of Community Education and are funded by a local tax levy, state aid, and fees.  Classes are led by licensed early childhood or parent educators.  If you have never attended ECFE, try us out!  To learn more call 763.682.8780.
