About ECFE (Early Childhood Family Education)
ECFE (Early Childhood Family Education) is offered through Minnesota public school districts. Together, parents and children, newborn to kindergarten age, participate in activities and experiences that foster children’s social, emotional, cognitive, physical, and language skills. All ECFE classes are taught by licensed teachers and parent educators to provide the quality education for which parents are looking.
A typical ECFE Class includes:
Together Time: Parent and child together enjoy a classroom filled with developmentally appropriate learning activities.
Parents’ Time:Parents separate from their children and join together for a discussion group facilitated by a Parent Educator.
While parents are in discussion, children participate in activities facilitated by an Early Childhood Teacher.
ECFE also offers non-separating classes in which parents remain with the children the entire class time.
