About our Program
FAMILIES FIRST. The mission of the Becker Early Childhood programs is to strengthen families through the education and support of all parents or primary care providers. Parents are a child's first and most important teachers, and we consider it a privilege to partner with families to provide the best possible environment for the healthy growth and development of the children in their care. Becker district's Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) program is designed for families with children ages birth to three, with some special events for four and five year olds. ECFE recognizes that parents are the first and most influential teachers in the lives of children. Parents and children attend ECFE classes together and enjoy playtime, learning experiences, songs, parent discussion and more. ECFE also offers home visits, family events and programs designed to give parents information and ideas to support the growth and development of their child.
