Help Our Program Grow!
UC Berkeley’s Early Childhood Education Program provides high quality early learning opportunities that nurture and support the youngest students on UC Berkeley’s campus. We teach young children of UC Berkeley’s students, faculty, and staff in a safe, nurturing, and stimulating environment that sparks curiosity and exploration.
Our unique model cultivates learning for young children, their families, our scholars, and our community. The robust and consistent programming provided by ECEP ensures that students, faculty and staff can pursue excellence in their chosen fields, confident that their children are receiving a high-quality early education.
ECEP relies on your contributions to maintain cutting edge learning environments, provide continuous professional training for our educators, and to support families of young children with resources that help them successfully balance family, school, and work.

ECEP wishes to thank everyone who makes our Annual Big Give successful.Curious about last year’s Fun in the Sun Big Give? ECEP raised $14,860 (or nearly 60% of our goal), and we couldn’t have done it without you! In the last year ECEP installed roman shades and roller curtains (Jan ’22) at the Child Study Center, a large permanent sail shade at UVA (April ’21), and smaller individual sail shades at Haste (various). We are still in the process of installing more sun mitigation shades with other funds! Thank you for your support!!
