Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE)
ECFE classes are held at the ECFE Center located in the GFW Elementary School in Gibbon. Classes meet mornings and evenings.
GFW ECFE is now on Facebook!
Please become a friend if you would like to receive reminders for class starts and special events.
Classes will be held in person with a limited capacity. Extra sanitizing and cleaning precautions will be taken. We will be limiting the class to only one parent with each child. Adults will be required to wear masks.
This age is filled with a driven sense of wonder and discovery. They are fascinated as they explore their world. They are learning to talk, to think for themselves, and to act independently. Come share with other parents ways to help your mover and shaker deal with frustrations, learn to share, and build self-esteem.
