  • Support for your role as a parent.
  • Research-based information on child development.
  • Fun, experiential learning activities for young children.
  • Connection to community resources.
  • Relationships with other parents in the community.
ECFE classes are taught by licensed Parent Educators and licensed Early Childhood Educators. Program Assistants have a combination of education and experience in the field of early childhood. Together, staff partner to make classrooms successful learning environments for all.
