English not your native language? For those who want to learn English, Family School offers a program without the barriers of cost or childcare.
The program, run through Eden Prairie Community Education, offers free English classes for adults while their 3- and 4-year-old children attend pre-school. In addition, free childcare is provided for infants and toddlers.
Adult English classes are provided by Metro South Adult Basic Education and children’s classes are staffed by early childhood educators.
Preschoolers who are 3 years-old by September 1, 2021, attend morning classes at Lower Campus Preschool Center, 8100 School Rd, Eden Prairie. Preschoolers who are 4 years-old by September 1, 2021, attend morning preschool at their assigned elementary schools. Adults and any other children 5 and under who are not enrolled in preschool will attend classes two days a week at Lower Campus Early Childhood Center.
Adult classes take place either on Mondays and Wednesdays or on Tuesdays and Thursdays, depending on the learner’s English level.
