The ECEAP expansion is made possible by the Washington legislators' continued emphasis on preparing young children for success in kindergarten and beyond. It is common knowledge that investing in our children's future makes good economic sense, and comprehensive programs like ECEAP can break the cycle of poverty in many homes. As reported in this article by Rafael Guerrero at the Yakima Herald, Washington is serious about reaching children before they enter public schools.
"Serving families in need is a vital part of Easter Seals Washington's mission," explains Molly Gunderson, Director of Jane's House. "By engaging with these preschoolers on a consistent basis, we can assess their development, teach them academic and social skills, and support their families to access needed services."
