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.  

- Currently we offer classes for children ages 2-5 and also family events for ages 0+
- Our ECFE program typically meets on Thursday evenings and there may be a special event on a Saturday. This year the plan is to have ECFE two Thursdays a month. One class and one event.    
- Classes are $3/child unless you register ahead of time for the classes you will attend.
