Dassel-Cokato Early Childhood

The first 5 years of a child's life are the most important for their development. The Dassel-Cokato Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) & Play and Learn Preschool programs are here to help guide parents and caregivers of young children during these critical years. We are here to support families, giving children opportunities to discover and learn along with parents and caregivers.
