Early Childhood Family Education

Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) programs are available for parents and children, from birth to kindergarten age.  We recognize that parents are a child’s first and most significant teachers, and our programs are designed to strengthen families through education, resources, and support.  ECFE helps families develop healthy parent/child relationships and sets the stage for supporting successful learners.

Proctor and Hermantown ECFE is available to all Proctor Public School and Hermantown Community School families with children between the ages of birth to kindergarten enrollment. Our classes are family-based, and they include parent-child playtime, parent observation, and small group discussion, along with plenty of time for children to play, discover and engage with peers. All our classes are age-specific and provide 90 minutes of education to ensure our MDE-licensed educators are able to provide families with the necessary tools to be strong, healthy, and connected families.

​​​​​​​Information and Resources

Proctor and Hermantown Early Childhood Family Education provides additional support to our families through special events, home visits, early screening, community resources and local access to literacy, educational manipulatives and learning materials.     

If your family is seeking or in need of additional support, please contact us, and we will be happy to help support you in your journey.

Stay & Play

Stay & Play is a free drop-in opportunity for families currently living in the Proctor Public School or Hermantown Community School district, birth to kindergarten age. It is a great way to connect with new families and engage with friends in a safe and supportive environment. Parents and their little ones are encouraged to explore with our learning materials and join us for storytime. This is an informal environment, and there will not be guided formal learning by a licensed instructor. We value community connection, and we want families to enjoy time getting to know one another while building an even stronger parent/child relationship.
