Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE)

You are your child’s first and most important teacher! Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) classes help you be the best parent to your child. ECFE classes are designed for you and your child age birth to 5. ECFE is unique to Minnesota and is a program of Eden Prairie Schools Community Education. From school-year and 10-week classes to playtime and special events, ECFE programs do the following:
  • Support your child's healthy development through engaging activities
  • Help you discover effective parenting tips you can use immediately
  • Allow you to enjoy parent/child time including songs, activities, games, and lessons that will help your child thrive in every way
  • Give families a chance to step away from the rapid pace of today's world and ease the stresses families face
