During our Winter Break, Governor Brown announced a shift in the guidance for returning to in-person instruction. Oregon will no longer enforce the state’s prior public health requirements for returning to in-person learning. Instead, any state guidance will be “advisory”.

Around January 19, Oregon will release updated school safety requirements. For now, EEP will remain virtual and continue to keep you informed of Lane County’s COVID metrics. After we receive and review the new school safety requirements next week, we can make a decision regarding a return to in-person instruction.

We do appreciate your patience.

Lane County’s Covid-19 case numbers for 12/27/20-1/9/21 were 284 cases per 100,000 people. – 1/11/21 metrics

 Who We Are

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

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


Our classrooms are small with excellent teacher-child ratios. Specially trained, dedicated, and nurturing teachers focus on each child’s individual needs; vocabulary/concepts, communication, and self-regulation/social skills are emphasized. 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!
