Children and families have several early learning options aimed at strengthening families and communities, supporting parents, and helping all children reach their greatest potential. Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE), School Readiness Preschool and Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) are housed at the Early Childhood Center. A year-before-school preschool, called KC Preschool, is offered through Centennial Kids Club at four elementary schools. Early Childhood Screenings are required by Minnesota state law and scheduled throughout the school year.

Parents are a child's first teacher, and Early Childhood Family Education supports families 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.
