About Us

Welcome to Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) and School Readiness!

ECFE/SR programming supports the role of parents and guardians as their child's first and most important teachers. Our staff and programming builds relationships with families that support positive parent-child relationships, family well-being, connections to peers and community, and school readiness.

We offer child-only school readiness classes, parent/guardian and child together ECFE classes, family fun special events, parenting classes, “out and about” adventures, and more!
