Who We Are

The Early Education Program (EEP) is Lane County’s largest ECSE preschool. Since 1981, we have successfully served preschoolers with special needs, including Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, and other developmental delays.

Currently, nearly 150 children attend our classrooms in Creswell, Eugene, Junction City, and Springfield.


EEP keeps classrooms small, with a focus on excellent teacher-child ratios. For that reason, our specially trained, dedicated, nurturing teachers can focus on each child’s individual needs.

With research-based strategies, our curriculum emphasizes vocabulary, concepts, communication, self-regulation, and social skills. And EEP’s small and large group activities keep children engaged, learning, and having fun!

 Supporting EEP

We rely on donations from businesses and individual supporters.

Your support helps us make the difference we know is possible. Thank you!
