Welcome to Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE)

The Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) program is for parents and their young children birth to kindergarten. ECFE participants grow and learn together with other parents of young children. A class or event is offered in the evening on the first and third Monday of the month. See inside for the upcoming dates and times.

The goal of ECFE is to offer support and information to parents that will enhance their child’s learning readiness. Taking time to explore the world together will give you and your child a foundation for a lasting relationship. Taking time to talk with other parents, while your child interacts with other children, will give you both a sense of connectedness.
