EARLY CHILDHOOD FAMILY EDUCATION

For Parents and Children

Welcome to the Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) program. Parents have a great influence on their children as the first and most significant teachers in their lives. Because the role of parenting is so important, this program is designed to include children with their parents where they will reassure parenting skills, encourage children in caring ways, and will bring parents and children together for a variety of shared experiences.

PARENT-CHILD ACTIVITIES

         Join ECFE for support, information, and enjoyable activities with your children. Any family with children between birth and kindergarten is welcome to attend. There will be a $15.00 fee per family/year for classes. No family will be denied participation due to an inability to pay.

Please pre-register 1 week before class starts

Please use the Southeast door (office). Class meets in room 101.
