Preschool help: Encompass Early Childhood program enrollment begins

The coming school year marks the 25th anniversary of the involvement of Encompass, the Valley’s child support organization, in a state program that helps needy families pay for preschool.

Enrollment for ECEAP, Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program, and enrollment of 3- and 4-year-olds for the 2012-2013 school year at Encompass, began the week of Monday, May 7.

Children need to be at least 3 years old by Aug. 31, 2012, and parents need to meet income guidelines as part of the qualification process.
