Services in the Kid’s Place are provided at no-cost. Therapy is provided on a sliding scale based on your income. Several of our education classes require a fee. Scholarships are available for families in need.
As a parent, I feel a little hesitant leaving my children in the Kid's Place. What kind of training does your staff have?

Our staff is also certified in First Aid, CPR, and Food Handling, and are trained to offer trauma-informed care. Additionally, our Kid’s Place is operated in compliance with Utah State Childcare Licensing requirements.
Who uses your center?
Our programs help to strengthen all families in Cache and Rich counties.
