Early Childhood Family Education
(ECFE) is a program for all Minnesota families with
children between the ages of birth to kindergarten.
The program is offered through Minnesota public
school districts.
ECFE offers parents hands-on learning experiences
that will nourish a lifetime of teachable moments.
All ECFE classes are taught by licensed early
childhood teachers and parent educators to provide
the quality education parents are
looking for.
Together, parents and children, newborn to
kindergarten age, participate in activities and
experiences that foster children’s social, emotional,
cognitive, physical, and language skills.
A typical ECFE Class includes:
Together Time
Parent and child together enjoy a classroom
filled with developmentally appropriate
learning activities.
About Early Childhood
Programs
What is ECFE?
Resources
Preschool
If you have recently had a new baby, or have moved to our school
district and have children ages birth through five, it is important that
they are included in the school census. This ensures that you receive
notification about early childhood classes, early childhood screening,
kindergarten round-up and other school-related information. If you
are not sure whether your children are listed on the school census,
please contact the Early Childhood Office at 763-477-7500, or fill out
a census form located on our web site at
early-childhood.district.rockford.k12.mn.us.
ECFE on Wheels Home Visits
A program that comes to you and is designed just for you. The
program features visits to your home or one-on-one visits at the
ECFE center. Visits provide ideas for creative, fun, age-appropriate
activities, as well as time to discuss questions about child
development. Information and ideas on parenting and community
resources are also available. Call the ECFE office at 763-477-7500 to
set up a home visit. There is no fee for home visits.
Early Childhood Advisory Council
Want to get involved? The Early Childhood Parent Advisory Council
meets three to four times a year to plan ECFE and preschool classes
and to discuss fees, class sizes, outreach, legislative issues, school
district topics and more. Free childcare is available for children during
the meetings. Please call 763-477-7500 to join!
Parents’ Time
Resources
Parents separate from their children and join
together for a discussion group facilitated by a

The Launching Pad
Preschool
Play ‘N Learn
Ages 3 to 5 years
The Launching Pad Preschool provides an outstanding
and unique public preschool experience for your child.
We embrace a Reggio Emilia-inspired philosophy and
Creative Curriculum.
The Reggio-inspired approach encourages exploration,
discovery and critical thinking. Our Creative Curriculum
is research based, and aligned with the Minnesota Early
Childhood Indicators of Progress (ECIPs).
Our program is founded on the belief that all children
have great potential, are curious, and are interested
in constructing their learning. Learning activities are
exciting, creative, and developmentally appropriate.
We focus on some of these key elements that
encourage children’s growth
and learning:
ECFE
Preschool
Preschool
Mixed Ages: Birth – 5 years
4-star Parent Aware rated program.
This reflects our commitment to high quality programming
using research-based best practices, while preparing
children for success in kindergarten and beyond.
The first half of the class you and your child will
explore a variety of learning stations that make
this time together relaxing, special and fun. After
a short group activity with music and movement,
parents leave the classroom and meet to discuss
parenting issues with a licensed parent educator.
Children remain with the early childhood teacher
and assistant enjoying activities together. As the
class ends, parents join their children for a brief
time to say good-bye to their friends.
