Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) offers classes, events, playtimes and other opportunities designed to give families information, ideas and skills to support their child's growth and development from birth to kindergarten.
Parent and child interaction
You and your child will spend time together enjoying activities designed to enhance learning, whether it is with children the same age as your child or with a group of mixed-age children. Mixed-age classes also give families with multiple children the opportunity to attend class together, at the same time. Families will leave class with new ideas and activities to do together at home.
Parents will meet with other families and a licensed parent educator to share ideas and discuss topics such as development, temperament and guidance. There are class opportunities for parents only, in addition to opportunities that children and parents attend together and then separate to practice independence while learning and playing with early childhood teachers. Children will enjoy music, art, stories and large/small muscle activities as they play and learn.
Families may attend playtime opportunities to play with their children in early childhood classrooms on a drop-in basis. New toys and sensory activities are organized for children each week to make each visit new and exciting.
