Early Childhood Family Education

Parents: how can you get your little ones involved in school? Try WEM ECFE.

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.

For 2021, the WEM ECFE staff has developed learning activity kits for you to complete with your child. All kits will include large and small motor activities, an art project, and a book to read. 

Pick up and return kits in the WEM ECFE Room in the Waterville Elementary Building. Use the new drop off on the east side of the building. Each kit will be sanitized between uses.

Examples of kits include: Trees, Bears Bears Bears!, Colors All Around, Wheels, Dinosaur Day, It’s Snowing, Princess Play, Fire Trucks, and many more.

Each session includes an in-class evening for you and your child to interact with other students and parents. Parents, please remember to wear a mask. Masks are optional for your child.
