EEP Families – Lane County has too many Covid 19 cases. In the 11/23/20 metrics, Lane County reported 962 new cases over 14 days. This is an increase in cases from the previous 2 weeks.

The recommendation for in-person or hybrid learning is less than 100 cases per 100,000 people over 14 days.
Lane County’s most recent metrics show 253.9 cases per 100,000 people.

Our priorities continue to be providing quality education to our preschoolers and meaningful support to your family while keeping our community healthy and safe!

Thank you for your patience, input, and flexibility.

EC CARES monitors Lane County’s COVID 19 metrics and will evaluate when we can return to the classroom.

 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!


In honor of Veterans Day, there will be NO SCHOOL tomorrow, Wednesday, November 11.
