Enhancing the quality of care and education for young children throughout Arkansas by providing professional development for early educators.

Early Care and Education Projects (ECEP) in conjunction with the Division of Child Care Early Childhood Education provides statewide training programs for early educators. Under the combined leadership of Dr. Bobbie Biggs and Dr. Deniece Honeycutt, the staff strives to provide the most up-to-date training possible to early educators. More than 200 trainers around the state deliver courses in a variety of locations including child care centers, public schools, vocational centers, technical institutes, community colleges and other postsecondary education facilities.



Over the past few months, ECEP has been working on updating our website to an entirely new system. As of today, we are proud to say the new and improved site is up and running! Navigating the site and finding the right forms is now easier than ever! If you have any saved bookmarks, be sure to update them as the old versions will no longer work. We will continue adding more exciting things to the website as time goes on, so be sure to check back often! (And if you find anything that isn’t working properly, let us know.)


The 54th annual Arkansas Early Childhood Association conference will be held on October 8th through the 10th at the Hot Springs Convention Center.
