Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE)

The COVID-19 situation is rapidly changing by the day. In the event of a long-term closure after Spring Break, parents in all programs would receive communication about distance learning, billing, and other important information you need to know.  Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time.

What is ECFE?
Recognizing that parents are a child’s first and most significant teachers, Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) programs offer a variety of classes and resources for parents and children birth to kindergarten age. ECFE helps build healthy families and sets the stage for parent involvement and children’s overall success in school.
