Zumbrota- Mazeppa Early Childhood Family Education Program

Did you know that your child's education starts at birth? At ZM schools, we provide one-time special events and classes for our youngest learners. We invite you to join us and learn more about how to help your child grow! Read below for a more detailed explanation of what ECFE is, and how it can benefit your entire family!

E - Early

ZM School's ECFE programs starts at your child's birth. Children ages newborn to before they enter kindergarten have the opportunity to attend programs that are geared towards their development and interest level. ECFE's goal is to enhance the ability of all parents and other family members to provide the best possible environment for their child's learning and growth.

C - Childhood

ECFE is a great opportunity to create lasting memories for the entire family. Many families that have started classes with their children at an early age have commented on what a memorable experience it has been for them.

F - Family

Did you know that ECFE is not only geared towards children, but parents as well? In our traditional ECFE class sessions, a licensed parent educator is present to facilitate parent discussions related to the joys and struggles of parenting young children! These discussions offer support, new ideas, and encouragement from other parents. The other half of class gives families the opportunity to participate in class together through circle time (song, stories, and movement), centers, and exploration. Children enjoy sharing their early school experiences with their parents, grandparents, and/or siblings!

E - Education

ECFE is based on the idea that the family provides a child's first and most significant learning environment and parents are a child's first and most important teachers. ZM's ECFE program offers a variety of early learning in their school. Licensed Early Childhood teachers focus the class' curriculum on the development and interests of the children in their class. These early learning opportunities will help them become familiar with a classroom and prepare them for preschool and/or kindergarten.
