Early Childhood Family Education

ECFE is an Early Childhood Family Education and School Readiness preschool program. We provide parent education, together with early childhood education, for parents and their children aged birth to kindergarten enrollment and include expectant parents. Parents and children participate in classes, parent discussion groups, home visits, early childhood screening, special events and preschool classes. We are part of Community Education and are funded by a local tax levy, state aid, grants, and fees. Classes are taught by Minnesota licensed early childhood or parent teachers. The ECFE mission is to support and strengthen parents, the first and most important teachers in a young child’s life.
