The Vashon ECEAP Dual Language Early Learning Program at Chautauqua Elementary School has some openings for the free preschool for the 2019-2020 school year.

With a focus on language learning, the program — now in its fifth year — is designed to foster a love and appreciation of art and science in young students while promoting healthy emotional self-regulation. It is intended to serve families with the greatest needs in the community.

“The preschool is like a Head Start program in that it looks at the most vulnerable families and it prioritizes placement of children from families who are experiencing things like homelessness or a recent transition” such as a move or job loss, said Sally Adam of VCEAP.

Students play and share group experiences four full days a week. Classes are offered in English and Spanish and free bus service is provided along with breakfast and lunch.

To visit, apply or for more information, call Adam at 206-463-8594.
