Early Childhood Classes

Early Childhood Family Education provides classes and services for families with young children from birth to kindergarten.  A typical ECFE class includes parent discussion while children learn together in an early childhood classroom.  Parents and children later join each other for fun learning activities.

Preschool classes are for 3 and 4 year-olds.  Our preschool program provides children with a positive introduction to school.  Our teachers are highly qualified, experienced and licensed by the state.


Kids' SAFARI is a before and after school program, as well as non-school day care, offered for children in kindergarten through grade 5.  The focus of the program is on school-age childcare and enrichment opportunities designed to meet the changing needs of children and families.  Kids' SAFARI is located at all Bloomington Public School elementary buildings.  For more information, please visit our website at www.kidssafari.org.
