Early Childhood


Thank you for your interest in ECFE and School Readiness. School Readiness is a high-quality program for children 3 – 5 years old and their parents. This program helps prepare children for kindergarten by providing opportunities for children to participate in a variety of planned learning experiences, large and small group activities, and hands-on play in our literacy rich classrooms. Classes for 3-year-olds are located at the Community Corner (69th and Humboldt Ave.). The location of 4-year-old classes is to be determined. It will be within district boundaries. Children must be at least 3-years-old on September 1st and be fully toilet trained. Half day classes are fee-based (sliding fee) and families are responsible for transportation.  All day classes are for district children only and priority is given to those that need an extra boost before kindergarten.  They are offered at NO COST with transportation provided.  Classes will follow the school year calendar.

For tuition based classes we take the entire year's tuition amount and divide it into 9 equal monthly payments so it is easier for you to budget. No family will be denied participation due to inability to pay. Please make an appointment with the Director (Michelle Trelstad, 763-561-4480, ext. 5000) to discuss.

Applications (4 pages total) are available by request from Amy at Earle Brown School and this web page.  (See below).
