Our free Early Childhood Education & Assistance Program (ECEAP) preschools prepare students and their families for success in life. We are passionate about seeing, celebrating, and educating every child.

Why preschool?

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 for not being school-ready.

Volunteers of America Western Washington improves these risks by offering Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program (ECEAP) preschool programs in Everett, Sultan, and Monroe.

In addition to academics, our ECEAP staff have always supported our students' families to ensure they have what they need to grow and succeed together. We proudly continue our family support by:

  • providing home connection materials to students for hands-on learning

  • regularly delivering food to our families

  • connecting our families with the resources they need, including COVID-19-specific funding through VOA's North Sound 211 program

  • staying in contact with our families regarding any challenges or needs they have
