Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) / Families from India -
2022-2023 ECFE Semester 1

This is a separating class (child and parent spend time together and apart).

An opportunity to provide a culturally and linguistically specific ECFE experience to families from India:

  • Parent educator will facilitate discussion using a bi-cultural lens
  • Parents will share Indian parenting practices focusing on parenting strategies to raise a child while navigating a new and unfamiliar culture
  • Parents will discuss challenges of balancing two cultures with the goal of raising a securely bi-cultural child
  • Parent Educator speaks Hindi, Urdu and Konkani and will help parents use their common language to create a successful multilingual group environment

A limited number of Infants 0-4 months are welcome to stay with parents during discussion time. Please enroll your young infant only in the Sibling Care option. NOTE: These young infants will remain with the parents during discussion time.

ECFE classes are priced on a sliding fee schedule based on family income. Please choose the fee that best fits your family budget.

A 10% surcharge will be applied to fees for Non-Minneapolis residents.
