Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE)
"Come for your children, stay for yourself!"
ECFE is a unique state-wide parent/child education program for all families with children ages birth to kindergarten.

There are weekly classes, one-time specials, drop-by playtimes, parenting speakers and program field trips.  Check out the Parent Advisory Council for ways to be involved in the program.

Weekly classes have three parts:
Learning together: you and your child play together choosing from many planned activities designed just for your child's age.

Purposeful play for children: designed as a child peer-group experience for learning and socializing, led by a licensed Early Childhood teacher.

Connecting with others: while children play, parents join together as An an informal group to share in discussions led by a licensed Parent Educator. Sharing ideas and learning about your child's development is a great benefit to everyone. 

Location: All ECFE parent-child classes are held at the Early Childhood Center, 5241 Shoreline Drive, Mound (in the Stonegate Plaza Mall).

Fees: No one is turned away for an inability to pay fees.  For sliding fee registration, please call the Early Childhood office at 952-491-8048.
