Family School

Registration is now open for the 2020-2021 Family School program! 

Fall 2020 Update: Because of COVID-19 and social distancing and safety guidelines, Adult English classes through Family School will be online (you will learn from home on the computer) from September through December 2020. Preschool for eligible 3 and 4 year-olds will still be available in-person. The infant and toddler classroom (childcare for those under age 3) will not be offered while English classes are online. We will re-evaluate the safety of in-person classes in November.

Family School offers

  • Afternoon preschool for 3 and 4 year olds born before September 1, 2017
    • 4- or 5-day options*
  • English classes for adults during preschool
    • Beginning English class on Tuesdays and Thursdays
    • Intermediate English class on Mondays and Wednesdays
  • An infant and toddler classroom for children born after September 1, 2017

To begin the application process, register for the 2020-2021 Family School program below. A separate registration is needed for preschool students: choose a 4 or 5 day afternoon option at Lower Campus. After you fill out the registration, an Eden Prairie Schools staff member will follow up with you about the testing requirement.

For additional information, check out the 2020-2021 Family School flyer. Contact Melissa Laubach for more information and to register at 952-975-6949 or email

*No fee assistance for preschool is provided beyond regular half-day scholarship offerings; see the Little Eagles Preschool page for more information.

"Program curriculum and teacher encouragement makes me enthusiastic to come to this program and never want to miss the class.  My kid also got a chance to learn new things to learn with teachers and friends. I keep spreading news about the program to the most extent. Everyone has to get a chance to learn about this program."
