    ECFE


    ECFE is an early childhood and parent education program for children ages birth to five and their families. We believe that parents are a child’s first and most important teacher, and offer many ways for you to learn together.
     
    We do this by providing the following services: 
    •    Classes and Drop-in Playtimes
    •    Home visits
    •    Early Childhood Screening
    •    School Readiness Preschool

    An ECFE separating class begins with parents and children playing and exploring in the Early Childhood classroom together with activities planned by a licensed Early Childhood teacher. The children continue to explore the room as the parents move into the Parent Education room. During this time parents ask questions, share parenting issues and discuss a variety of topics with other parents led by a licensed Parent Educator. No family will be denied participation due to inability to pay. New classes will begin in the fall. You can join most classes at anytime.
