Kingsland Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE)
Welcome to Kingsland ECFE! My name is Alyssa Humpal and I am the ECFE coordinator/parent educator. We look forward to your family joining us for our ECFE Events. Please explore the page for more information about the different ECFE events and activities. We have a variety of different options for your family to participate in.
What is ECFE?
Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) is a public school program for all families and children from birth to kindergarten enrollment. Parents and children are welcome to participate in ECFE programs. ECFE is based on the idea that the family provides a child's first and most significant learning environment and parents are a child's first and most important teachers. ECFE works together to strengthen families. The programs include parent/child time, parent discussions, and children's time.
Kingsland ECFE is open to all families and their children from birth to age five (not currently enrolled in Kindergarten). ECFE programming follows the school calendar. If there is an early out or if school is canceled, ECFE will be canceled as well.
Sliding fee scale:
Fees are collected at the beginning of each semester (twice per school year) based on annual income. This is only a suggestion--please pay what you are comfortable contributing. Payment is confidential and no family will be turned away because they are unable to pay.
Fee per family per semester
$70,000 - Above $80
$60,000 - 69,999 $70
$50,000 - 59,999 $60
$40,000 - 49,999 $50

$20,000 - 29,999 $30
$10,000 - 19,999 $20

The fees collected from the sliding fee scale will be used for ECFE program expenses. Fees can be turned into ECFE Coordinator with enrollment form for the program.
