Nurturing Crucial Skills For
Social-Emotional Development

Nurturing Crucial
Skills For Social-Emotional Development

We encourage your child to become self-aware and to self-express, to form and share their ideas, discuss, problem-solve, and negotiate. Encouraging your child to share their thoughts and feelings supports comprehension, communication, and social-emotional skills.

Children Take The Lead In
Their Learning And Success

Children Take The
Lead In Their
Learning And Success

Children guide what happens every day by how they respond in the classroom. They are valued, seen, and heard, and are a critical part of their learning, their interest. We help children make the most of their developing skills and abilities.

We Take the Health and Safety
Of Your Child Very Seriously

We Take the Health
and Safety Of Your
Child Very Seriously

Your child’s safety and wellness are extremely important to us. We’ve implemented the highest level of safety standards and daily health practices, such as temperature checks, rigorous and frequent hand-washing, and much more.

Teachers Create Weekly
Lessons Based In Play

Each week’s lesson plan involves meaningful play for your child. A Reggio-inspired, play-based curriculum allows your child to naturally build on their strengths and also to address any areas of weakness.

We Match Your Child’s Learning Potential With:

We Believe In
Problem-Solving And Opportunities For Collaboration

Our teachers guide your child through their learning process by being neutral and non-reactive. Your child can try, fail, and try again, learn at their own pace, as we expertly encourage abilities like problem-solving and collaboration.

Providing Your Child With
Positive Guidance Every Day

Teachable moments are opportunities for your child to build on their learning when they can identify a problem, help to solve it or comfort a friend. We believe that children shine with the help of positive guidance in these moments.

Building A Successful, Collaborative Community

Imagine your child peacefully at play, able to verbalize feelings, cooperate, negotiate, work independently, and collaborate with others in a group setting. An experience-rich environment is your child’s introduction to building relationships, community, and a better society.

Quality Care And High Standards Make Us Early Learning Leaders

Parents know they are getting the best service, as we gain national recognition for the exceptional level of care that we provide. The National Accreditation Commission recognizes us as Early Learning Leaders, and we were the first private preschool in Utah to receive both NAEYC and NACPE accreditations. We are also members of an industry-leading mentoring and coaching program, The Child Care Success Academy.

Joining Forces With Parents
On This Learning Journey

Our app allows on the spot, teacher-parent communication from the convenience of your phone, and you can count on our parenting library, loaded with reliable information, for answers to all your parenting questions.

Educated, Tenured Teachers Will Guide Your Child With Passion

Our carefully selected team is qualified, caring, and dedicated to their craft and the families we serve. Each center has degreed teachers, teachers with a Child Development Associate, and teachers working towards both. We have several staff that have been with us over 20 years.

Daily Outdoor Time For
Movement And Social Play

Outdoor play boosts immunity, mitigates anxious feelings, increases focus, and supports physical health; this is why we include at least two outings in your child’s daily schedule.

We had such a great experience at the Second Avenues Preschool. This is the first preschool our daughter went to. We love all the teachers and the administration, too. The curriculum really fosters creativity and imagination in the kids.

We absolutely LOVE Child Time. The teachers and staff are amazing. They care so much about these kids and they love their jobs. Our son has grown immensely since starting- from his vocabulary to social skills to other milestones.

When we started the Avenues Preschool almost almost eight months ago my son was very shy. Through the teachers kindness and encouragement, he has developed so much socially. He comes home singing songs he learned at school, he talks about his "best friend", he can't wait to go back every day.

My son attended The Second Avenues Preschool for 3 years. He had so much fun and he learned a lot. He went to kindergarten very well prepared. His favourite teacher was Miss Amy. I felt like the staff really cared about my son and our family.

As a mom I love the curriculum provided, the healthy snacks and being able to receive updates on their app everyday. When I pick her up there is no mystery about how she did that day because I can look at the pictures and information they posted. I can't say enough good things about this place!

There are so many great things I could say about Second Avenues! My shy son has absolutely thrived here and loves his teachers. He gets excited each morning to see his friends and teachers! The classrooms are clean, warm, and inviting without being overstimulating.
