Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program

The Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program (ECEAP, pronounced “e-cap”) is Washington’s FREE comprehensive preschool program serving high need 3 and 4-year old children and families at or below 110% of the Federal Poverty Level (for a family of 4 this is no more than $29,150 annually). ECEAP provides kindergarten readiness education, health and nutrition services, family support, advocacy training, and parent education. YWCA ECEAP promotes long-term success with school and life, through trauma- care, brain-researched social-emotional methods and high quality enriching environments and teachers.


WHY ECEAP?

  • It’s about the whole family…
    ECEAP is a FREE preschool that promotes long-term success with school and life by addressing the needs of the whole child to ensure that gains are sustained. ECEAP provides preschool education, family support, and health and nutrition services.
  • ECEAP serves eligible children and families based on the federal poverty level to ensure the success of all kiddos.
  • Compared to similar children who do not attend, children in programs like ECEAP are:
    • Healthier when they start kindergarten
    • More likely to graduate from high school and go onto college.
    • More likely to be employed and to earn more as an adult.
    • Less likely to be in special education or repeat a grade in school.
    • Less likely to become pregnant as a teen or become involved in a crime.
