Welcome to ECFE (Early Childhood Family Education) 

ECFE classes begin in the fall and run through spring! 

About ECFE - Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) offers classes for all parents and their children ages newborn to not yet in Kindergarten. ECFE is based on the belief that parents are a child’s first and most important teacher. 

Fergus Falls ECFE classes are taught by Minnesota licensed early childhood teachers and parent educators to provide quality education. The program engages parents and their children in educational activities and experiences that foster children’s social, emotional, cognitive, physical and language skills. Most classes offer a time for the parents and children to interact together followed by a parent discussion group where parents have a chance to share the joys and concerns of raising young children. 

ECFE classes provide parents with the opportunity to learn more about parent-child relationships, developmental milestones and issues that can arise from being a parent. 

Our Mission is to strengthen families and support parents in providing the best possible environment for the healthy growth and development of their children.

We offer ECFE classes for parents and children Monday through Friday, mornings and evenings and many one-time special events, including opportunities throughout the community.

Classes are offered for all ages of children and include music and movement, language and literacy, creative arts, science & discovery, pre-reading and pre-math activities.

Please let us know how we might better accommodate your family’s needs.

ECFE classes begin in the fall and run through spring!
