Our mission is to improve the availability of high-quality, affordable childcare in the Moab area.
Our state-licensed, infant-focused, center:
We put a lot of thought into creating a great daycare experience for families and their children. Our director has a degree in Early Childhood Education as well as a credential in childcare administration. We provide parents with real-time updates and pictures of their child's activities through an app called Brightwheel. To help ensure quality, the ratio of kids to caregivers is typically 4 to 1. We keep to an organized daily schedule. We have groups of toys we sanitize and rotate each day. We have a TV policy. We incorporate fresh fruits and veggies in every meal, serve hormone-free organic milk, often make meals from scratch, and minimize fried foods, juices and desserts. Here's a typical weekly menu.
We care for children between 3-36 months old. We are open M-F 8:00a-5:30p. Our facility is in the Lutheran Church on 360 W 400N. Note: we are not religiously affiliated. Email us or give us a call at 435-355-0623 for more info!
Cost & subsidy Info:
For full-time care we charge $1175 per month for infants up to 1 years old, $1125 per month for 1-2 year olds and $950 per month for toddlers between 24-35 months old. However, there are generous subsidies available which dramatically reduce this cost for a number of families. We'll help you through the whole process. Email us to learn more. We also offer part-time care at pro-rated prices.
More about our non-profit's work:
In addition to operating our state-licensed, infant-focused daycare center, we help other daycare providers as well. Specifically we (1) provide subsidized staffing support and other services to childcare providers to ensure their continued operation in our community, support and improve quality of care, and where appropriate, help increase their capacity and/or hours of operation; and (2) support the creation and operation of new childcare facilities. One of our core values is a belief that making jobs in childcare more attractive, through competitive pay, benefits, flexibility and support will result in a greater availability of high-quality childcare.
