Early Childhood Family Education (E.C.F.E.) is a program for all Minnesota families with children between the ages of birth through age 5. ECFE is based on the idea that the family provides a child's first and most significant learning environment and parents are a child's first and most important teachers. ECFE works to strengthen families and enhance the ability of all parents to provide the best possible environment for healthy growth and development. Our ECFE program at HL-O typically meets on Thursday evenings and sometimes special events take place on a Saturday. We offer "Little Ones" classes for children ages 0-2, classes for children ages 3-5 and also family events. Refer to the newsletter for specific classes and events.
