Child & Youth Services

About half of the children in the United States start kindergarten unprepared. Children who live in low-income and unstable homes, are the most at risk. Studies show how critical it is that a quality early learning experience is available, accessible, and affordable to children. Volunteers of America Western Washington improves these risks by offering ECEAP programs that will be the difference for youth in Snohomish County.

What is ECEAP? ECEAP stands for Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program. For more information about ECEAP, please click here: ECEAP

Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program
VOAWW's Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program (ECEAP) is a state funded, free preschool for limited income families. ECEAP is designed to provide a comprehensive early childhood program for preschool children and their families. If your child resides within the Snohomish School District boundaries or is highly mobile such as migrant or homeless, he or she may be eligible for our ECEAP program.

ECEAP provides a nurturing environment for the preschooler by offering educational experiences designed to help children develop social, emotional, cognitive, and motor skills. ECEAP also offers nutritional and health services for the preschooler by offering hot lunches and nutritious snacks daily and providing a wide variety of health screenings.

Volunteers of America Western Washington operates three ECEAP community preschools in Snohomish County.
