About Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE)

Welcome to Osseo Area Schools Early Childhood & Family Education (EC&FE)

Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) is based on the idea that parents provide their child's first and most significant learning environment and parents are children's first and most enduring teachers.  ECFE works to support you as a parent/caregiver and to strengthen and empower families.  The goal is to enhance the ability of all parents and other family members to provide the best possible environments for their child's learning and development.
