Early Childhood Family Education is a program for all families with children, birth to 5 years old, regardless of financial circumstances. The goal of the program is to support parents in their child-raising role and provide children with opportunities to discover and learn. Weekly classes are held during the day, evening and Saturday mornings. Each class provides for parent-child activity and a parent discussion group. In addition to weekly classes, special events, field trips and a parent resource library are available to all families in the community. All teachers are licensed by the State of Minnesota. Call 651-487-4378 for more information.
