Early Childhood & Family Programs
ECFE is a public school program for all Minnesota families with children between the ages of birth and kindergarten entrance. ECFE is based on the idea that the family provides a child's first and most significant learning environment and parents/guardians are a child's first and most important teachers. Our goal in ECFE is to strengthen families and to enhance the ability of all parents/guardians to provide the best possible environment for their child's learning and growth. Cambridge-Isanti ECFE is a fun, informal place to learn with other parents/guardians and meet new friends. Children spend special time with their parents, engage in activities, and play with peers.
Swimming lessons are taught by American Red Cross Certified Staff. Children ages five years and up may participate. Each level of lessons includes training in basic water safety and helping a swimmer in distress.
