The early childhood programs at Lanesboro strive to meet the goals of emphasizing the importance of early learning and early literacy. We welcome you to learn more about our programs and would love you to join us!

Early Childhood Family

Education

Parents are a child’s first and most significant teachers. ECFE offers a variety of classes and resources for parents and children, birth through kindergarten age.  If you are unfamiliar with how ECFE classes operate, class time is divided into three sections:  parent-child activity time - where families explore a classroom filled with developmentally appropriate play and learning activities planned by a teacher; parent discussion time where parents meet with a parent educator to share support, experiences and information about child development and parenting techniques; and children’s activity time where children learn with the teacher and paraprofessional and practice social skills as they interact with each other.

Focusing on a relaxed, fun, and creative atmosphere, Lanesboro offers fall, winter and spring sessions on Wednesdays at 8:30-10:00 a.m., 10:30-12:00 p.m. and 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. If you are interested in attending please contact the school to confirm the class is in session at the time you would like to attend.

In addition to the regular classes, special classes including monthly open gym, fun day classes such as “Kids in the Kitchen,” “Krazy for Kites,” and themed classes such as Earth Day and ECFE Birthday Party are also offered. All children and families are welcome and encouraged to attend ECFE classes! ECFE also coordinates community wide events for seasonal holidays such as Halloween, Christmas and Easter.

Preschool

Lanesboro Public Schools offers two different preschool classes: a three/four year old class and a four/five year old class.

The three/four year old class meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays for three hours each day. Morning and afternoon classes are offered with transportation to and from preschool available.

The four/five year old classes meet on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for three hours each day. Morning and afternoon classes .....
