Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE)

Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) provides parents and children [birth to five] with support to grow and helps set the foundation for a lifetime of learning. Most ECFE classes include time for children and families to grow together; time for children to explore independent learning; and time for parents/guardians to meet with licensed educators and feel encouraged by the support of others.

Family Literacy 

Family Literacy is a collaborative program of Adult Basic Education and Early Childhood Family Education. This program provides adults with an opportunity to learn English while their children learn in a preschool setting with a licensed Early Childhood teacher. Adults attend class three days per week and focus on improving their English reading, writing, listening and conversational skills. In addition, adults who have children in the Family Literacy preschool attend a class taught by a licensed Parent Educator and discuss parenting in the U.S. Parents have an opportunity to learn about school in America, their child's development, and how they can support their child's learning.

The children’s classroom at Family Literacy provides children between the ages of birth to 5 with an opportunity to learn the academic and social skills necessary to be successful in kindergarten. All learning is hands-on and uses play to foster learning. To register for Family Literacy contact Adult Basic Education at 763-566-5452 or
