Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE)

Come for your child. Stay for yourself.

ECFE helps you and your child feel more happy and confident in school. We focus on play-based learning that is hands-on and mind-on. All classes include parent and child-led play and a circle time with stories and songs. There is also a time for the parents to discuss parenting topics with a licensed parent educator. During parent group, the children are guided in their learning by a licensed early childhood teacher.

Our program supports you to:

  • Understand your child’s development

  • Enhance parenting strategies

  • Provide opportunities to develop social and emotional awareness

  • Develop problem solving skills with your child

  • Learn techniques to guide child behavior

  • Gain friendships with other families

  • Build your connection with the school district

  • Access to community resources

The registration for ECFE classes starts with the online registration system in Skyeard at https://www.isd47.org/enroll.
