Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) 

Welcome to ECFE 


According to the Minnesota Department of Education, "Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) is based on the idea that parents provide their child's first and most significant learning environment and parents are children's first and most enduring teachers. ECFE works to support you as a parent/caregiver and to strengthen and empower families. The goal is to enhance the ability of all parents and other family members to provide the best possible environments for their child's learning and development."

The program is for all Minnesota families with children from birth through the start of kindergarten. ECFE is provided by teachers who are licensed in early childhood and/or parenting education by the state of Minnesota.
