EEP Families – Please continue to exercise Covid-19 safety procedures, such as wearing a mask when indoors or in crowded outdoor spaces, washing your hands frequently, and completing a vaccination series if you are eligible and have not done so already.

EEP also encourages families to work with little ones on proper mask usage. Practice wearing a face covering with your child and find ones that they can tolerate. Please click on this link for helpful ideas: tips

 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!
