ECEAP Slots In Deer Park

The Deer Park Early Learning Center program has 14 additional ECEAP full day slots. Currently, the program has 2 full day and 2 half day classrooms. The increase will allow them to offer 2 more half day classes.

ECEAP, which is an acronym for Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program, is a comprehensive “whole-child” family-oriented program designed to support children and their families to succeed in school and life.It serves 3 and 4 year olds and their families in our community, prioritizing those with incomes at or below 110% of the federal poverty level. The program also assists children who have difficulties in such areas as speech and physical development.

Applications can be picked up at the preschool at 1406 E. “D” Street or can be completed over the phone (509-464-5680).  Applications are also available at all Deer Park Schools, the Deer Park Administration Building at 428 N. Main Street, and the Deer Park Library at 208 S. Forest Avenue.
