What is ECFE ?

Early Childhood Family Education ( ECFE ) is based on the idea that parents provide their child ’ s first and most important learning environment . ECFE works to support you as a parent / caregiver and to strengthen and empower families . The goal is to enhance the ability of all parents and other family members to provide the best possible environments for their child ’ s learning and development .
Anoka-Hennepin Schools ECFE program provides :
• hands-on learning experiences that encourage children to play and explore .
• a supportive community and friendships for parents and caregivers .
• licensed early childhood educators and parenting education teachers .

ECFE Classes , what are they like ?

• Parents / caregivers and children participate in activities and experiences that encourage children to play and explore .
• Meet with other parents / caregivers along with a licensed parenting educator to share ideas and discuss topics such as development , temperament , and guidance . Additional topics are directed by the specific groups and tailored to meet those specific parent and family needs .
• While parents / caregivers participate in parenting education , children learn through play while taking part in a variety of activities in the classroom with licensed early childhood educators .
