ECEAP Longitudinal Study and Annual Report 1992: An Evaluation of Child and Family Development through Comprehensive Preschool Services.
Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR.
The Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program (ECEAP) provides 4-year-old children from low-income families with a comprehensive preschool experience that emphasizes their developmental, health, and nutritional needs, involves their parents, and responds to their family's social service needs. This annual report on the ECEAP discusses the development and implementation of the program and measures children's performance over time in four key areas: (1) cognitive and physical development; (2) social and emotional well-being; (3) health and nutrition; and (4) family well-being and empowerment. Results are compared with those of children who do not participate in the ECEAP, showing that participation in ECEAP has a strong, positive impact on children. Two appendixes list the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of ECEAP advisory committee members and contractors. (MDM)
