 Join other women in this supportive group as they discuss many things; but all are topics which interest women!  Some examples of discussion items thus far are; relationships, parenting, budgeting, our dreams for ourselves and our children, and how to go about achieving them!  They have explored nutrition, exercise, emotional health, and are looking forward to a visit from a therapist from Selah Therapy, who will be offering free shoulder and neck massages.   Participants will be deciding what topics they would like to explore next.     New members are always welcome.

ECFE is an early childhood and parent education program for children ages birth to five

and their families. We believe that parents are a child’s first and most important teacher, and 

offer many ways for you to  learn together. we do this by providing the following services: 

   Classes and Drop-in Playtimes
   Home visits
   Early Childhood Screening
   School Readiness Preschool

An ECFE separating class begins with parents and children playing and exploring in the 

Early Childhood classroom together with activities planned by a licensed Early Childhood teacher. The children continue to explore the room as the parents move into the Parent Education room. During this time parents ask questions, share parenting issues and discuss a variety of topics with other parents led by a licensed Parent Educator. No family will be denied participation due to inability to pay. New classes will begin in the fall.
