Early Childhood Family Education

Early Childhood Family Education

This year we offer both in-person classes at Diamondhead and online classes for at-home learning. You will need to register all attending children for 6-week classes and ongoing classes for baby and toddlers, and birth to prekindergarten through grade 2 ages. Please register attending parent for our parent only classes.
The flexibility of monthly ECFE payments holds your spot in class for the entire year or allows you to opt out at any time. As always you can sign up at any time as long as there is room in the class. The sliding fees are a guide; pay what you are able. All 191 families are encouraged to join regardless of payment.
We also offer shorter classes for a one-time fee and will be offering Pop-UP one time classes soon. 

These are live virtual classes provided via Google Meet. To join us, you will need access to a computer or device with internet/wifi access. You will receive information/instructions via email the day before classes start. 

ECFE options for preschoolers include Preschool Plus, a two day parent/child preschool experience on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the morning (in person) or afternoon (virtually), and Preschool Plus: The Next Year, a virtual class for children who attended Preschool Plus previously.

Attend in-person classes with small groups, adhering to recommended health and safety guidelines.

The READY! For Kindergarten program is designed to help participants prepare children with the skills needed to start and stay at grade level throughout their scholastic career. You, the parent or caregiver, are your child's most powerful teacher. With READY! for Kindergarten you can help plant the seeds for success in school and a lifelong love of learning for your child. Join us for upcoming READY!
