Family Education




You are your child's first teacher, and Early Childhood Family Education can support you in this important work. Centennial ECFE offers quality learning opportunities and resources for families with children from birth to kindergarten age, regardless of financial circumstances. We work to strengthen families and enhance the ability of all parents to provide the best possible environment for the healthy growth and development of their children.

ECFE classes include:

  • parent-child activity time planned by a licensed early childhood teacher
  • parent discussion time with a licensed parent educator
  • children's activity time with a licensed early childhood teacher
