Class Registration v3.0 - Bemidji ISD 31


ECFE/School Readiness

Bemidji's Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) program and School Readiness Preschool (SR) are for all families in the Bemidji School District who have preschool age children. We recognize that parents are a child's first and most important teachers -- and that sometimes parents need support and encouragement for this responsibility! ECFE/SR offers a variety of classes for you and your child: infants to pre-kindergarten.

Since children are at different levels of development at varying ages, they learn from one another as they play, interact, and develop skills.  Classes include parent and child interaction time as an opportunity to spend uninterrupted quality time with your child.  Parents then separate for a facilitated parent group while the children continue playing, interacting, and developing skills with the Early Childhood Teacher.  At the end of class, parents and children reconnect for circle time with stories, songs, and fingerplays.
