Learning together
We also offer affordable "extended care" that is available daily from 7:00 AM to 9:00 AM and from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM. This allows us to accommodate the schedules of working parents, making us an excellent alternative to traditional child care. Kindergarten and grade school are from Monday to Friday only. Preschool programs offer a variety of schedules, including:
  • Monday to Friday
  • Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
  • Tuesday and Thursday

We have a team of degreed teachers who have the experience and credentials to manage excellent classrooms. Our teachers are known for their talents and innate passion for teaching.

The curriculum of Daybreak Academy covers the core standards of each grade level but goes above and beyond with unsurpassed enrichment. Your child’s potential knows no limits, so we want to give him or her the opportunity to do more.

All students get to participate in two or more special enrichment lessons every day they attend. These classes are taught by specialists and include the following:

  • Applied sciences
  • Art history and visual arts
  • Balance and movement (includes tumbling, dance, coordination, as well as gymnastics)
  • Creative literature
  • Creative technology
  • Film and theater

Kindergarten

Our full-day, in-house kindergarten program cannot be found in other schools across the whole state.

Preschool (Ages Two and Older)

Our instructors teach a comprehensive academic curriculum. We hold developmentally appropriate classes on math, science, and pre-reading skills in an expertly structured and fun environment. In addition, each student gets to participate in daily special enrichment lessons. These classes are taught by trusted professionals.

We teach according to the Utah Core Standards for preschool. On top of that, we go the extra mile with our own in-house, arts-based enrichment programs.

Kindergarten Prep

Our gifted teachers and exceptional curriculum have made pre-K one of our most popular programs. Your child will be guided by highly capable teachers in a well-designed learning environment. He or she will also benefit from our full curriculum that includes math, science, and reading. They will also take part in special enrichment lessons every single day they attend.

Everything we teach is aligned with Utah Core Standards for prekindergarten and is complemented by our in-house, arts-based enrichment programs. Our pre-K headteacher has more than 20 years of teaching experience and holds a master’s degree in education. Every pre-K graduate is well-prepared for kindergarten and beyond.

Kindergarten

Our kindergarten students receive a well-rounded academic and arts enrichment experience, which is crucial to their intellectual and social development. The academic curriculum consists of classes that will equip them with the necessary knowledge they’ll need later in life. Also, each class is relatively small, which means your child will get more personalized attention from the teachers.

Best of all, they get to participate in two or more special enrichment lessons every day. These classes include creating their own stop-motion animation videos, participating in class musicals, growing an organic garden, performing at piano recitals, and taking part in the karate belt system to improve their gross and fine motor skills.
