If you attended the Minnesota State Fair this year, you may have seen some friendly Richfield faces! Our Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) team had a fantastic time meeting families and sharing information. Our ECFE teacher, Shanyn Hill, said about the experience: "We shared resources with families on the importance of spending time in nature with regards to child development, in addition to ways that they can extend learning outdoors with their children at home."
Learning starts well before a child enters kindergarten, which is why we offer programs to help parents and caregivers create learning environments for young children. Our birth to age 5 programming offers everything from one-time drop-in events, to targeted interventions to support children wherever they are in their developmental journey.

We were thrilled to have had the opportunity to attend the Minnesota State Fair and spread awareness of ECFE to families who may not have heard of it. Our staff enjoyed reading stories and singing songs with the children in attendance and connecting with their caregivers on how their parenting journey was going.
