Early Childhood Initiative


Fri, Apr 4th, 2014
Posted in Peterson Education

Rushford-Peterson Community Education offers many opportunities for early childhood aged children and their families. Our Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) classes are open to birth-5 year olds. Parents and children attend the themed classes together. Classes meet on Tuesday evenings from 6:15-7:30 p.m. We have started a new program called ECFE On the GO! ECFE On the GO! is where we take our ECFE class to the area child care centers. It is a great partnership between the school and the child care providers!

Along with offering classes, ECFE also sponsors events the whole family can attend together, as well as events that highlight and celebrate special family relationships! This school year, families have already enjoyed Math Wizards Night, Santa’s Workshop, ECFE Open Gyms, and Reading Wizards. Upcoming special events for this spring include the annual Family Spring Fling on April 27 from 2-4 p.m.

R-P Community Education proudly offers the Lille By Preschool program to our community. 3, 4, and 5 year old children attend classes independently from their parents. Lille By (pronounced “Lilla Bee”) is a Norwegian name that means “Little Town”. Our preschool is an inclusive program. Lille By Preschool is currently accepting preschool registrations for the 2014-15 school year! Please contact the Community Education office for more information. Lille By Preschool is a 4-Star Parent Aware Program!

ECFE Special Event information and Preschool information is included in the ECFE/School Readiness newsletters mailed approximately once a month during the school year to our mailing list. Events are also advertised on our website at www.r-pschools.com under the “Community Ed” tab on the top of the homepage.

Community Education also offers enrichment classes for all ages. Watch for R-P Community Education’s summer catalog that will include exciting opportunities for youngsters such as themed summer day camps, wee-ball and t-ball programs and more!

For more information on any of our early childhood programs, or to be added to our ECFE/School Readiness newsletter mailing list, please contact Emily Johnson, Early Childhood Coordinator, at 507-864-7786 ext. 1131 or email her at emilyjohnson@r-pschools.com.
