Early Childhood Family Education
Early Childhood Family Education is a special program for you and your young child birth through entering Kindergarten. It features opportunities for you to meet other parents of young children, playtime for your child. All classes are led by licensed teachers and experienced staff. Caregivers attend with their child.
Who is a parent?For our programs, “parent” can mean a child’s mother or father, but it can also include a significant adult in a
child’s life; for example, a grandparent, aunt, uncle, foster parent, step-parent, caregiver, etc.
What about my other children?Most classes offer free child care for siblings. Please register for sibling care when you register for your ECFE
What if I don’t live in the district?Families living in Princeton School District #477 have priority when registering for our ECFE classes, but non-
residents are welcome to register and may participate. We will contact you prior to the start of class if we are unable to accommodate you and your child.
Where is ECFE located?Unless otherwise indicated, classes meet in the Family Center, 706 First Street, Princeton. Parking is avail-
able in the Family Center lot or on the street (First Street or 8th Avenue N). Please enter door 1. The ECFE classrooms are on the 1st floor of the Family Center.
Whether you are a veteran parent or a new mother, father, grandparent or guardian and need some help or advice please call our Licensed Parent Educator Amy Korkeimeier-Howard. She is available to talk to you and possibly do home visits if needed. Parenting is complicated and in ECFE we are sitting on many many resources that you may find helpful and valuable.
