Between the ages of birth and five years old, brain growth is phenomenal. Supporting families in supporting their children’s learning at this stage in their lives is important to our District, so that all children may start school on an even playing field. To this end, the Enumclaw School District currently offers the following services:
The Birth to Five Center provides a community based facility where families and their young children are supported and provided with positive learning experiences in the Enumclaw School District.
Child Find screenings help identify children who may have developmental delaysneed special services in order to experience success in school. Screenings are conducted monthly during the school year for children from birth to age 4.
Our developmental preschool program focuses on individualized programs and group activities that help children ages 3-5. Classes are taught by trained special education personnel. Children qualify for Developmental Preschool through the Child Find process (see above).
The Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program (ECEAP) is Washington's pre-kindergarten program serving at-risk three and four year olds and their families.
A parent or guardian may request an exemption for a child whose 5th birthday falls after August 30 (the cutoff for Kindergarten) and by November 1st of the upcoming school year.
