What is ECFE?

Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) is a public school program for all Minnesota families with children between the ages of birth and kindergarten. The program recognizes that families provide children’s first and most important learning environments and parents are children’s first and most important teachers. The mission of ECFE is to strengthen families through the education and support of all parents to provide the best possible environment for the healthy growth and development of their children.

All ECFE programs include parent education, early childhood education, and parent-child interaction.
