• Pre-K to Grade 3 parenting education and family engagement

    With a need for family connections and parenting education as children transition into elementary school, Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) offers classes, workshops, and parent resources for families with children from preschool through early elementary school years.

    Parenting education and family engagement can:
    • Connect families with resources at their child's school.
    • Provide information and support to families through family events, parenting workshops, and one-on-one support as needed.
    • Support schools and families in working together to help students be successful in school and at home.
