Early Childhood Family Education

Dad and daughter play with foam

Many Class Options!

Early Childhood Family Education classes provide parents and their children (birth to kindergarten entry) an opportunity to learn and have fun together. Classes are offered at Lincoln and Dr. SG Knight Elementary Schools.

A typical 2 hour, weekly class would include time for parents and children to do activities together; a time for children to separate from their parents and be in a preschool setting with an early childhood educator; and a parent discussion time where parents meet with each other to talk about common joys and concerns of raising children today.

  • Space is limited.
