For over two decades, St. John’s Community Child Development Center has been providing preeminent childcare and early childhood education to Salt Lake City. We began in 1998 as a mission of St. John’s Lutheran Church and since then, we’ve grown to four locations serving over 300 families.

“Planting Seeds of Faith and Knowledge.”

Why St. John’s CCDC?

We are a nonprofit, state licensed, and nationally accredited school. In fact, we are the only multi-site, stand alone child development center that is accredited through the National Lutheran Schools Association (NLSA). Though a Lutheran mission, we serve a diverse student body from all over the valley.

Our curriculum privileges the interests and creative expressions of children. The Reggio Emilia approach values each child as strong, capable and resilient, rich with wonder and knowledge. Combined with a warm Christian atmosphere and program emphasis on community, St. John’s is more than capable of providing the best quality education for our children.

We have been providing childcare and early childhood education for over two decades, and our staff is experienced and dedicated to delivering excellent care. You can expect your children’s teachers to be

  • First Aid and CPR certified 
  • have a current Food Handlers permit
  • have a current Federal Background Check
  • continuing early childhood education classes at least annually.

Our teachers are always creating, organizing and planning the next best lesson for your child. Additionally, we believe that communication between parents and teachers is vital; we use the Kaymbu platform to communicate every day, and parent teacher conferences begin for students that are age 2 and older.

We are proud to have grown to four locations across the valley, in Liberty Park, Sugarhouse, Murray and Sandy. Each school has unique facilities, sets of staff and administrators. Read about each location to learn more. Furthermore, we also present the wildly popular summer camp and aftercare program Camp Wild Life.

“St. John’s Community Child Development Center admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.”
