Early Childhood Family Education


ECFE - A place for families to grow and learn together

School is cancelled for all ECFE classes, on Monday January 22 due to the predicted severe weather.


Welcome to  Early Childhood Family Education

Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) is a program for parents and their children during the years from birth through pre-kindergarten. ECFE is a relaxed and fun place to meet other families with young children, and play and learn together. Here at Farmington ECFE, we offer a wide variety of classes, including drop-in classes, special events, online classes, a family literacy program and several special opportunities. There are day and evening options for all preschools age groups and many classes have sibling care for preschool siblings. Classes are affordable and your fee payment will be based on your family income.


All of our ECFE classes are led by experienced, licensed teachers who help children discover and learn about the world around them through activities and play using art, science, movement, games, and stories. Our teachers create a safe and secure learning environment where children thrive and parents receive information, friendship, and support.

What do our parents have to say about ECFE!

"ECFE provides an opportunity for my child to socialize"

" My child loved going to ECFE. She enjoyed the art projects and circle time"
