The Educare Family Association (EFA) has the expressed purpose of supporting Educare Learning Center children and families through program offerings and activities in an effort to build community and enhance program offerings for children. All families are members of the EFA upon enrollment of a child in the center; EFA requires no fees for participation in monthly meetings and planning of activities/events.

WHAT DOES THE EFA DO? The EFA holds meetings once a month that are open to everyone - we hope that ELC families can come and share opinions and offer help in areas of interest.
It is at these meetings that the EFA will brainstorm ideas for planning new events for students and families. We also plan exciting, new fundraiser events to provide assistance to Educare and the teacher's for those extra things to support the children's experience at Educare. And we also use this time to discuss school-related topics and answer any questions from new parents. No one is persuaded to participate in activities that do not interest them.
WHEN DOES THE EFA MEET? The first Tuesday of each month from 6:30 – 8:00 pm. Childcare is provided.
WHERE CAN I FIND THE EFA MEETING MINUTES? The notes from each meeting are available below. If you cannot attend the EFA Meetings, please take an active interest in your child's school by reading the EFA Meeting Minutes and providing feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
HELP ENSURE SUCCESSFUL / FUN EVENTS Almost all of the fun activities that we plan for the students cannot be successful without the generosity and assistance of volunteers. Some events are held during the day but we also hold many evening and weekend activities too. We encourage ELC families to consider being an active member of the EFA.
The Educare Family Association (EFA) has held another meeting! Meetings are held 6: 30-8:30 p.m. on the first Tuesday of every month. Come join us! All Educare parents/guardians are welcome to attend. This will be an opportunity for parents to network with each other and become a support system to the program to help plan family events and raise funds to enhance program offerings and materials. Come with ideas! Childcare will be provided. Contact the EFA at EFA@educatewithcare.com
