• The STMA Tradition of Excellence starts here! 

What is Early Childhood Family Education?

  • 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 to strengthen families.

    ECFE's goal is to enhance the ability of parents and other family members to provide the best possible environment for their child's learning and growth.

  • ECFE is the first step in your child’s educational journey.
    STMA recognizes the importance of early education for children and families. 
    It is our mission to provide each family with a positive introduction to STMA schools. 


    We have moved to 3 equal ten-week sessions!
    Brochures will be out the end of December. 
    Registration begins Thurs, Jan 3 at midnight.
