Parent/Child ECFE Classes
Early Childhood Family Education is a program of District 2164 for all families with young children (age birth up until kindergarten). ECFE believes that the years before a child begins school are the most important in their development. The program is based on the recognition that the home is the child's first learning environment and that the parents are the primary and most important teachers. All activities provide opportunities to build positive parent/child relationships while having fun together!
Frequently Asked Questions:
Who attends the classes? Other parents and children just like you
What activities are offered? You and your child explore the ECFE room together. Learning activities are provided as well as time for open play. This time also includes a group "Circle Time" of songs and stories. The activities are adjusted for each age group. Parent Discussion time is during the second half of class. A licensed parent facilitator provides resources and guides discussion about child development.
When are the classes offered? We offer different sessions of classes each year! The first session begins in November and the second session begins in January. Each session will last between 6 - 8 weeks. Watch the Early Childhood website or email Tracy Tollefson (email@example.com) for an up-to-date list of class offerings!
