Step Up to Preschool

Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) / Separating -
ECFE 2223 School Year

Weekly Class: Registration Required

Students must be 3 years old by December 1. This class is a great option for children who just missed the cutoff for 3-year-old preschool, are still working on toilet training, or are not ready to attend school without a parent's presence. We start the year as a once-a-week parent-child class on Thursdays. Once students grow comfortable with the class setting and confident during separation time, they will begin attending Fridays (same class time) without parents. We anticipate adding Fridays in mid-January. Sibling care is available for this class on Thursdays only.

Notes for registration: Be prepared to select your income level, based on pre-tax household income, in order to determine your price for the class. Select the annual or monthly payment method, and your price will be displayed. Several surveys from the MN Department of Education are included at the end of your registration. (Surveys have no bearing on your registration, but it is helpful to our program if you complete them.) When you are given the choice to "continue shopping or checkout," select continue shopping to add another class or to add another child to the same class. Otherwise, at checkout you will be asked for a payment method (credit card or checking account), which will be charged only if you are placed in a class.

When you check out and your registration is complete, you will receive a confirmation email. If you do not receive this email, your registration may not be processed. Please login to Eleyo again and confirm that you have provided an active email address and that you have complete all the required fields for registration.
