Saint Paul Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) offers parent and early childhood education for families with children between birth and kindergarten age.
ECFE is based on the idea that the family provides a child's first and most important learning environment, and parents are a child's first and most significant teachers. ECFE works to strengthen families and enhance the ability of all parents to provide the best possible environment for the healthy growth and development of their children.
A typical ECFE class consists of three learning sections:
ECFE most often begins with parent/child activities in the children’s classroom.
Parents then separate from their children and join together for a discussion group facilitated by a Parent Educator.
While the parents are in discussion, children continue to participate in activities facilitated by an Early Childhood Teacher.
