Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) is a Lakeville Area School District Community Education program that strengthens families with young children through education and support. ECFE provides parent-child interaction activities and parent education for families with children birth-5.
The components of most classes are:
Growing Together: For You and Your Child: The first half of each class is devoted to activities planned by a licensed earlychildhood teacher for parents and children to explore together.
Growing Independently: For Your Child: The remaining portion of each class is for children to have fun learning through play using art, movement, games and stories with the early childhood teacher, classroom assistant and the other children. (Non-separating class options are available)
Growing Confidently – For You: While children take part in the children’s program, parents join with other parents in an informal group setting for discussion time led by a licensed parent educator.
