Early Learning News - Laurie Hume Assistant Director - Early Learning Welcome to the 2017-18 ECFE school year. We are so happy to be working with the families and children in school district 197 and surrounding districts. There are some exciting new program options this year. We will be offering a mixed age class on Mondays. In addition we are offering Ready, Set, School! which is an introduction to preschool for those kids who are not 3 by September 1. This class is offered two days a week. The first day parents and children attend together, and on the second day just the children attend. Both of these classes are offered at Pilot Knob STEM Magnet School. At the Early Learning and Family Resource Center we will offer Full STEAM Ahead. This class will include activities related to science, technology, art and music. Our ECFE program also provides free home visits to families. An ECFE staff member is available to come to your home and provide child development resources and information based on your individual needs. Be sure to check out the Wild Imagination Costume Party on October 14th. It is a free event sponsored by our Early Learning Advisory Council.

About ECFE ECFE is a program that offers parents and their children from birth to pre-kindergarten opportunities to grow and learn together in a supportive, stimulating environment. ECFE also supports families in learning to find time for one another, having fun together, being proud of who they are and knowing they are not alone. You will find fall semester classes and more information about ECFE in this section of the brochure. Information on preschool options is on pages 16-17.

What are ECFE classes like? Classes are held in the mornings, afternoons and evenings. Most sessions last 1½ to 2 hours. A typical session begins with time for parents and children to enjoy classroom activities together. Then, children play and learn under the supervision of a licensed early childhood teacher, while parents share experiences and ideas with other parents and a licensed parent educator.

What do we know about the effectiveness of ECFE? Participant feedback and current research show that ECFE is a major resource to families with young children. It sets the stage for parent involvement and children’s success in K-12 education. It has proven effective with all kinds of families, and many even believe that ECFE creates more caring communities as it brings families from all income levels and backgrounds together around their common concerns as parents. School District 197 is serious about supporting families and children. Let us know how we can serve you better!
