Directors and Staff

Our directors and staff have significant experience working with young children. Many have taught in public schools and hold degrees in childhood education. Our teachers and staff love working with children and strive to provide a wholesome, loving atmosphere for your child. They are warm, caring, and relate well with children. Teachers are also given the opportunity to enhance their own professional development through on-going teacher training, seminars, and workshops.

The Child

Each child will have personalized experiences to maximize social, educational, and independent growth. All of these experiences are always planned with quality materials, games, and equipment. These experiences offer each child a chance to expand knowledge, increase problem-solving skills, pursue curiosity, improve motor-skill coordination, deepen his or her sense of self-worth, and develop friendships with adults and peers.

Food Program

The federal (USDA) childcare food program (regulated by the Utah State Board of Education) is served to all children in full-day programs or other programs by special arrangement. A qualified nutritionist has planned and organized breakfasts, lunches, and snacks to meet the developmental needs of your child. All teachers hold food-handlers permits.

Building and Playground

Play areas for children exist both indoors and outdoors. Each building has been especially designed for children. On a tour of the facility, parents will see that even the bathrooms are designed to accommodate those with shorter legs. Whether it is inside or outside, the center meets all safety protective requirements and quality program codes.
