The Northeast Washington Early Childhood Program
Head Start, along with the Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program (ECEAP), gives learning an early boost for 3, 4 and 5 year olds. By focusing on children’s literacy, language, math and social skills, as well as their health and nutrition needs, these early learning programs prepare children to be successful in school. Learn more about the benefits of Head Start and ECEAP.
