Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) is a program for all Minnesota families with children between the ages of birth and Kindergarten enrollment. ECFE is a community education program offered through the Watertown-Mayer School District. ECFE is a unique parent-child education program for ALL families with children ages birth to Kindergarten. Weekly classes have three parts:
Learning Together In the children's classroom parents and children have time to play and learn together. You can choose from many planned activities designed just for you and your child. Learn new ideas for activities to do at home. (This together time is planned by a licensed early childhood teacher.)
Purposeful Play For Children Children enjoy learning activities planned by a licensed early childhood teacher. Activities are designed for children to learn through play with their peers. The goal is to hlep children develop a healthy self-concept and a love for learning.
Connecting With Others While children are learning with their teachers, parents join together in an informal group setting for a discussion time led by a parent educator. The group discusses current family topics; they share ideas, learn more about their child's development and benefit from feeling connected to parents.
Please call Community Education to learn more about ECFE or to register for classes and/or special events at 952-955-0280.
