What is E.C.F.E.?
Parenting begins at conception and continues to grow and change with your child's growth and development. ECFE is here to support you as parents and to show you activities for your child's age.
What do you do at ECFE classes?
GROWING TOGETHER: For You and Your Child. A chance for parent and child to do some fun activities together that are designed by a licensed Early Childhood Teacher for your child's age group. Together you can enjoy learning through art, music, stories, and learning activities.
GROWING INDEPENDENTLY: For Your Child. A part of each class is for children to have fun learning through play using art, science, movement, finger plays, games, and stories with the Early Childhood Teacher, the Paraprofessional, and the other children. The children's program helps them to develop a healthy self-concept and a joy of learning.
GROWING CONFIDENTLY: For You. While children are in the children's program, parents join other parents in a parent discussion time led by a licensed parent educator. Parents can choose to discuss current family topics, share ideas and concerns, and learn from each other. Discussion time for infants and toddlers are in the same room as the children. For children two years and up, parents separate to the parent education room.
