School Notes

We believe children learn by doing. Academic and emotional development is enhanced when children make their own discoveries. Our teachers help children become independent, self-confident and inquisitive learners, while aiding in their social-emotional, cognitive, language and physical development. We maintain a low child-to-teacher ratio with talented, credentialed instructors who foster self-confidence, independence and self-discipline.

Our programs are designed to help each child:
  • Develop a positive self-concept and confidence
  • Inspire curiosity and the ability to inquire and explore
  • Strengthen verbal expression
  • Increase self-discipline and independence
  • Enjoy creative pursuits
  • Develop trust in others
  • Learn lifelong cognitive, physical and language skills
  • Identify positively with Jewish traditions
We offer Preschool, Kindergarten, and Summer Camp. Visit www.slcjcc.org for more information, or call us at 801-581-0097.
