Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) is a Community Education program of Prior Lake-Savage Area Schools, and is the first connection between families and the school district. ECFE is a program unique to Minnesota and is offered in over 300 school districts throughout the state. The mission of ECFE is to support and strengthen families - the first and most important teacher in a young child's life. 

We love making new friends and the chance to learn and play!

ECFE Classes

ECFE Classes offer three components: Parent and Child Interaction time, Guided Play for Children and Parent Discussion Time

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.


ECFE has been something the whole family looks forward to each week. We love the connections we've made with the families and we love our amazing teachers!
