The Early Education Program (EEP)
The Early Education Program (EEP) is a unique pre-school educational intervention service for children who struggle to attain skills necessary to start school as a result of abuse or neglect.
The Townsville, Brisbane and Cairns program was developed through a partnership between Act for Kids and Education Queensland. The teachers are a part of the Townsville, Brisbane and Cairns teams and work closely with practitioners in these centres to integrate interventions specific to individual children into the curriculum.
The EEP is open four days a week and children aged 25 years attend full or half days at the pre-school learning the skills they need for primary school.
