ECFE Family Education

Early childhood family education is a program for all Minnesota families with children between the ages of birth to kindergarten entrance.  ECFE has a “parent group time”  when parenting issues, child development information, speakers and parenting support are provided by a licensed parent educator.  The children will have their own group time with a licensed early childhood teacher who provides planned activities and experiences that help enhance the learning and development of young children.
