Do you have a parenting question?  If you are looking for developmental information, kid-friendly activities, or parenting techniques, we can help.  A licensed parent educator will answer your questions based on current research and experience.  Send your questions to:  ecfe@isd12.org


Do you have concerns about your child’s development?  While all young children grow and change at their own rate, some children experience delays in their development.  If you have concerns about your child’s talking, playing, behavior, ability to learn new things, or interaction with other people, call 763-433-4888 if your child is under the age of 3, or call 763-792-6123 if your child is over the age of 3.
