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, ADHD, and other developmental delays since 1981.  Currently, nearly 200 children attend our classrooms in Creswell, Veneta, Junction City, Eugene and Springfield.


Our classrooms are small, have excellent teacher-child ratios and are staffed by specially trained, dedicated, and nurturing teachers.  We 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

Donations from businesses and individual supporters, grants and tuition, as well as money earned from our annual Walk-the-Diamond fundraiser, all help to fill in the gaps that state and federal funds simply do not cover.  Your support helps us make the difference we know is possible.

Thank you!

Please remember to let your child’s classroom teacher know if your child will be absent. This will help them plan accordingly.
