Early Childhood

Fun & Learning for kids ages Birth – 5yrs and their families!

ECFE: Early Childhood Family Education

Come and join us for classes designed for parents and kids to enjoy together.  Each class includes a time for parents and kids to enjoy together with activities, songs, stories and more.  This time is followed by parent time where parents meet together with a licensed Parent Educator and discuss the joys and challenges of parenting young children.  During this time children are playing with a licensed Early Childhood teacher as well!   We will update class offerings & registration as we know more about current health guidelines for fall.

Early Childhood Screening

Is your child age 3 or 4?  Call our screening secretary to schedule your FREE screening.  Screening is a brief, simple procedure used to identify potential health or developmental problems in infants and young children who may need a health assessment, diagnostic assessment or educational evaluation. 

Screening in early childhood supports children's readiness for preschool and kindergarten and promotes health and development. Screening includes vision and hearing, height and weight, immunization review, large and small muscles, thinking, language and communication skills, as well as social and emotional development.  Call or email Dawn Peterson to schedule your child’s screening!  (320) 360-7698, ecs@midstate.k12.mn.us
