Early Learning

Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) is based on the idea that parents provide their child's first and most significant learning environment and parents are the children's first and most enduring teachers.
ECFE works to support you as a parent/caregiver and to strengthen and empower families.  The goal is to enhance the ability of all parents and other family members to provide the best possible environments for their child's learning and development.

Early Childhood Screening

Early Childhood Screening helps identify children who may benefit from early childhood services before they enter kindergarten and connects you to appropriate programs and resources.
