• Mission of Minnesota Early Childhood Family Education
    The mission of LCWM Early Childhood Family Education is to strengthen families and support all parents in providing the best possible environment for the healthy growth and development of their children.
    What is ECFE?
    ECFE is based on the philosophy that parents are their children's first and most important teachers.

    ECFE programs offer support and provide practical and realistic ideas for raising children in today's world.

    ECFE is an ISD #2071 Community & Family Education program for families with children birth to age 5. All school district families are invited to attend the programs and activities.

    ECFE participation is voluntary and classes are offered for a small fee. Families who are unable to pay may have the fees waived.

    Are you new to ECFE?
    If you have never attended an ECFE class before, write in "NEW FAMILY" on the registration form and pay just half the regular price for your first session of parent/child class.
    Please call the ECFE Office at 507-726-2320 if you have any questions.
