ECEAP stands for Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program. The program is funded by the State of Washington and is for age-eligible children from low-income families. ECEAP has exciting preschool activities for children, including a meal (breakfast or lunch) and a snack. The model in our district is Monday through Thursday, 2-1/2 hours per day (AM or PM session). ECEAP involves the whole family and offers health, nutritional and social services support. We use research-based curriculum, with the goal of assuring that our students have the skills they need for success in kindergarten. Parents/guardians are encouraged to be involved in monthly parent meetings, and as volunteers in the classroom.
The online links at the right are an assortment of sites for parents and kids – from good information to educational fun for preschoolers. Please take advantage of them. As always, parents should monitor their children’s online activities at all times. Let’s keep them safe!
