The State of Washington, Department of Early Learning, Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program (ECEAP) is a state funded, "whole child" preschool program. This program is designed for 3 and 4 year old children and their families. The program helps children and families with school readiness and school success. Staff supports children's development and growth in physical, social, emotional, cognitive and creative areas. The program works in partnership with parents, the community and state and federal agencies. During the August 2015-July 2016 period the ECEAP agencies completed 2,706 assessments with 1,248 families using the Family Development Matrix outcomes model (FDM). See their collaborative report under the Evaluation menu.

Welcome to Our Website
The Matrix Outcomes Model helps transform agency outcomes through custom measures. We offer a collaborative approach from design to implementation. The result is an outcomes model to measure real change with families, agencies and communities.
The Matrix Outcomes Model provides a set of complimentary assessment, case management and evaluation tools. The Matrix has evolved with state and community partners who continue to refine the language, structure, and guidelines of the tool as they apply it to their programs.
Agencies using the Matrix usually have combinations of these program characteristics: they strive to be accessible, accountable for results, collaborative, community based, comprehensive, culturally sensitive, integrated, family focused, prevention focused, school linked, and tailored to individual, family and community needs, family strengths and outcomes.
