Early Childhood Family Education

You are your child’s first and most important teacher! Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) classes help you be the best parent you can be. ECFE classes are designed for you and your child age birth to five. ECFE is unique to Minnesota and is a program of Eden Prairie Schools Community Education. Thank you for your patience as our Early Childhood Family Educators work hard to provide program options that allow for safe learning, connection and quality age appropriate content whether in person or virtually. 
Based on results from the parent survey, we have modified our offerings. The results spoke loudly to the desire for small, in person, socially distanced groupings. Additionally, we will also be offering virtual age specific classes for parents, and some special topic classes. 
Due to pandemic, we will be postponing the start of ECFE classes until the week of September 14. We will be offering one-time classes, 5-week classes and 10-week classes. The options for Fall 2020 will include: 
  • Daytime, evening, and Saturday classes
  • Small group age specific non-separating ECFE classes
  • Online age specific parent education classes
  • Online programing for children
  • Multi-age classes where you can bring all your children under 5
  • Specific topic related parent ed courses on positive discipline, race, and social-emotional learning.
  • Opportunities to purchase learning kits for at-home learning

Winter and Spring offerings will be planned as we near the end of the first 10 weeks sessions.
