Early Childhood Family Education

Parents who take an active role in their child’s education have children who do better in school and life! If you have a young child under the age of 5, please join us for ECFE! Early Childhood Family Education Classes are fun for both children and parents! Hope to see you there!

Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) 

Classes are offered at all of our schools for children and their parents before the child goes to Kindergarten.  Classes meet weekly.

Help us build our Early Childhood Mailing List! 

Do you have a child under the age of 5? If so, we would like to add you to our early childhood mailing list. Please call or email DaNeil at 218-749-8130 or

To enroll in early childhood programs in Minnesota, children must have up to date immunizations or file a legal exemption.  Parents may file a medical exemption signed by a health care provider or a conscientious objection signed by a parent/guardian and notarized.  Our school district follows Minnesota law with regards to immunizations and your child will not be able to attend any early childhood programming if immunizations are not up to date.
No child with overdue immunizations will be allowed to attend.
If you need assistance obtaining immunizations please contact the St. Louis County Health Department at 1-800-450-9777 for information about low cost or no cost immunizations.
