PURPOSE AND GOALS
The Highland High School professional community acknowledges a critical need to prepare high school students with adequate skills and knowledge of correct child care techniques for the home and work place. Our full-time child care center and preschool runs in connection with the Family and Consumer Science programs. The main purposes of the center are to:
Quality child care can make a big difference in the future of a child and the community. It is the goal of the Highland High Child Care Center to see that the program is organized and focused to the needs of ALL involved: children, high school students, teachers, and parents.
WHO CAN JOIN?
The HHCC serves children of employees of the Salt Lake City School District. Children must be two months of age up to five years old. Highland High staff members have first priority when there are openings. When available, spots may be given to community families after all interested district employees have been served.
HHCC runs a preschool for children in the Highland community. Preschool runs Tuesday - Thursday from 9:30 AM - 12:00 NOON. Preschool begins just after Labor Day and runs until just before Memorial Day. Cost is $90 a month per child.
The child care center is open 5 days a week. Monday through Thursday: 7am - 4:30pm, and Friday 7am - 4pm. The Highland High Child Care Center has been planned in conjunction with Highland High School's traditional school year. The High School Child Care students and their help are required to maintain a quality program. The childcare center is closed all days that Highland High School is not in session.
