Our Mission

The mission of the Wee Care Center is to provide quality child care and early education for the children of student parents at UVU and Turning Point. Then, on space availability, childcare will be offered to the children of employees at UVU.

"...the capacity to care is the thing which gives life its deepest significance." (Pablo Casals)

We are here to show through example and action what it means and feels like to care. The children who are entrusted to us need that example, for without it, who will they grow up to be? We are Caregivers, we are Teachers, we are Mentors. It is not enough to simply watch and observe it is a matter of planning, executing, and taking the time to create and environment of learning trust and care. For us this is more than just a part time job.

Children are discovering who they are. We are here to help them find that person and they in turn, will pass that on to the next generation. What we do is not day by day, but it extends by generation.
