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. The majority of our staff have degrees in Early Childhood Education or a related field. All of them are mothers. 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 never exceeds 6 to 1 and is typically lower. 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 2-35 months old. We are open M-F 7:30a-5:00p. 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 435-260-7109 for more info!
Cost & subsidy Info:
We charge $1050 per month for infants up to 2 years old. We charge $825 per month for toddlers between 24-35 months old. However, there are generous subsidies available which dramatically reduce this cost for many families. We'll help you through the whole process. Give our Outreach Director, Taylor, a call at 435-650-6164 or email her at email@example.com to learn more.
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.
Who we are:
Our Board is made up of Rob Walker (chair), Audrey Graham, Tess Barger, Daniel McNeil, and Kate Niederehe. Our staff is made up of Nikki Wilson (Center Director), Taylor Rutherford (Director of Outreach), Leah Stamp, Kelsey Cervantes, Maddy Kauffman, Dal Jensen, Sena Nissen, and Lilian De Roch.
