Playroom PictureOur Young Parent Program is designed to support the pregnant and parenting students of the 4J School District. Childcare is offered at two different sites, depending on the age of the child. There is no charge for childcare, with the understanding that students are attending and passing all classes, and working towards graduation. Each of our Child Development Centers offers can care for a total of 8 children.

The ECCO Young Parent program and Child Development Center is located on the campus of ECCO High School, which is directly behind the 4J district offices at 200 N. Monroe Street. This site is designed for children ages 6 weeks to approximately 18 months. ECCO offers a weekly parenting group to support and foster community for our young parents.

 Our second site, Kids Down South, (KDS), is located on the campus of South Eugene High School, at 400 East 19th Ave. The KDS site offers care for children from age 18 months up to 3 years.

There may be a waiting list for childcare. For more information on our Young Parent Program, please contact Jill Johnson at 541-790-6860.
