winkWelcome to Kingsland Early Childhood Family Education!wink

I am Angela Waters and am excited to be Kingsland's Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) Coordinator and Parent Educator.  
Kingsland ECFE offers parent and early childhood education for families with children between birth and kindergarten age.

ECFE is based on the idea that the family provides a child's first and most important learning environment, and parents are a child's first and most significant teachers. ECFE works to strengthen families and enhance the ability of all parents to provide the best possible environment for the healthy growth and development of their children.
