Our Values

  • We value all children and believe that regardless of their economic, social or ethnic heritage, they have the inherent right to a productive and fulfilling life.

  • We believe there are many factors that contribute equally to a child’s positive development such as consistent supportive relationships and exposure to a variety of developmental experiences.

  • We know that children have various ways of learning and understanding the world around them and we work to create academic and enrichment activities to support all learning styles.

  • We value families in their various forms as the foundation for a child’s growth and development and we work to provide information and educational opportunities to support and encourage family engagement.

  • We value our community schools and work to see that the afterschool activities are in-line with educational goals of the Utah Core Curriculum, the Grand County School District and Moab Charter School.

  • We recognize the importance of working together with the community to provide Moab’s youth and families with the best support network and learning environment we can.
