What is ECFE-Early Childhood Family Education?
ECFE is a place for parents and their young children under the age of 5.  It is a place where you can meet new friends, share the joys and challenges of parenting while children have a safe and supportive environment to play with others. The mission of Moose Lake ECFE is to support and strengthen families and parents – a child's first and most important teacher.
What does a typical ECFE class include?
Most ECFE classes meet once a week and include:           
  • Parent-Child Time ~ families explore a classroom filled with developmentally appropriate play and learning activities planned by a licensed early childhood teacher.
  • Parent Time ~ parents meet with a licensed parent educator to share experiences and information about child development and parenting techniques.
  • Children’s Time ~ children learn with the licensed early childhood teacher and paraprofessional and practice social skills as they interact with each other.
