    What is ECFE?

    Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) is a program for all Minnesota families with children between the ages of birth to kindergarten entrance. The program is offered through Minnesota public schools. ECFE is based on the idea that the family provides a child's first and most significant learning environment and parents are a child's first and most important teachers. ECFE works to strengthen families. ECFE's goal is to enhance the ability of all parents to provide the best possible environment for their child's learning and growth.  Registrations for ECFE classes are mailed out in the fall, winter, and spring in the District Newsletter - Community Education section. You can contact Terra Fitzsimmons or Megan King at 218-863-5910 ext. 5393
