Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program (ECEAP) is free, state-funded preschool that provides experiences geared to meet children's' individual needs. Families with children age 3 or 4 years old by August 31st may qualify for this free opportunity.
We have 8 ECEAP classrooms in 7 locations across Pierce County including Bonney Lake, Buckley, Eatonville, Orting, South Hill, Sumner, and University Place. A dual language (Spanish/English) program is available at the South Hill location.
Benefits of ECEAP include socialization, early literacy and math activities, screening for vision and hearing, developmental screening, outdoor play, and USDA meals. There are also opportunities for parents and guardians since our ECEAP teams work hard to provide families with education, activities, volunteer opportunities, community resources and referrals.
