• Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) is a parent-child program for children age birth to Pre-Kindergarten and their parents

    ECFE programming is based on the idea that:

    • the family provides a child's first and most significant learning environment
    • parents are children's first and most important teachers

    The goal is to strengthen families by enhancing the ability of all parents to provide the best possible environment for their child's developmental learning and growth.

    ECFE classes are:

    • typically held in the fall, winter, and spring
    • posted on our Viking Preschool and ECFE Facebook page
    • advertised on our District website (PROGRAMS, EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION)
    • published in the District Newsletter
