Welcome to Sartell-St. Stephen Early Childhood


Sartell-St. Stephen offers a variety of resources for you as a new parent. We consider you your child's first and most important teacher and we want to partner with you throughout your child's first five years as you prepare them for school success.

  • Read to your child everyday! Language development is a top factor in being ready for and successful in Kindergarten.
  • Add your child to our census to stay in touch and receive important notifications about programs. Download form here and mail to Early Childhood Coordinator, 212 3rd Ave N, Sartell, MN 56377.
  • Join an ECFE class! These classes will support you as a parent, offer parenting tools and a chance to network with other parents. View our class offerings here.
  • Have your child screened around the age of three and one half. Early Childhood Screening checks your child’s growth, development, and possible health or learning concerns in order to offer you additional support and resources if needed. Register for a screening appointment here.
