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.
