Our Center

The Wee Care Center is a place where children are valued for their sense of wonder, their genuine curiosity, their need to explore, and their natural desire to learn. At every level, the Center strives to provide the highest quality of care for your children.

Accreditation and Licensing

The Wee Care Center meets or exceeds Utah State licensing requirements for childcare facilities. In addition to meeting state requirements, the Center meets the highest standards of childcare accreditation through the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation (NECPA).

Accreditation standards with NECPA are research-based and developmentally appropriate to help early childhood programs implement higher quality in all aspects of the program. To earn this accreditation, the Wee Care Center under goes rigorous evaluations of its health and safety standards, community and parent relationships, and staff training at all levels of child interaction. Learn more about the NECPA evaluation.

Curriculum and Assessment

The Wee Care Center provides educational opportunities for your children through The Creative Curriculum. This comprehensive, research-based curriculum promotes exploration and discovery as a way of learning, helping children develop their confidence, creativity and lifelong critical thinking skills. Learn more about our curriculum.

For child developmental assessments, the Center implements Teaching Strategies GOLD. The program uses a research-based assessment to evaluate and monitor children’s ongoing development, which includes sensory, cognitive, gross motor, fine motor, socio-emotional, and language development.
