Northfield ECFE is an enjoyable, informal place to learn with other parents and meet new friends. Most classes begin with parent and child interaction time. Hands-on art, science, literacy and music activities are planned around weekly themes. Then children get a chance to practice their independence and peer interaction skills while parents separate to another room for discussion led by a parent educator.
In our younger classes, parents stay in the room for group discussion. Sibling care is offered in many classes at a reasonable rate.
The Goals of ECFE:
- Give children opportunities to discover and learn
- Support parents in raising their children
- Offer information about child development and parenting
- Help parents and their children communicate with each other
- Promote positive parental attitudes
- Provide information on community resources
