About ECEAP

The years between birth and five are critical ones in a child's education. To a great extent, the foundation that is laid during these years determines what happens in later life. A strong early childhood education program can ensure that this foundation is firm and secure.

The mission of East Valley School District's early childhood educational program (ECEAP) is to provide a strong foundation for all children - a foundation for lifelong learning. Early education promotes the overall development of a healthy child, but it is also critical because children who have had the right kinds of educational experiences before kindergarten do better at school.

The ECEAP program is a no cost, high quality preschool program for lower income families. We offer transportation within the East Valley School District, meals & snacks, and health services for all eligible families.

If you have a child who is three or four years old by Aug. 31st, or know a child that is three or four years old, please give us a call to discuss possibly enrolling your child.
