The Kids On The Move Child Care Center is a fully-licensed program committed to providing high quality care for children from two months to first grade enrollment at competitive rates. We have three separate classrooms, segregated by age and development. Call us or come by to learn more about our child care program and what we can offer your child! 

We currently have a few openings, but the spots fill up quickly, so call today 801.221.9930. 

Transition Workshop: Tuesday, January 28th 6:30 to 8:00pm

 

Children enrolled for services in the Early Intervention program receive services only until age three. 

 

If the child qualifies for continuing services, they receive them from the local school district. 

 

What can you anticipate from the district? How do they determine services? How can parents be sure that their child is receiving the services they need? The Utah Parent Center will answer these and other questions. You won't want to miss this important training! 

 

If you have any questions call Ingrid Taylor 801.221.9930 ext.162. If you need free child care, you must reserve a spot by calling 801.221.9930 ext.100.  

Monthly Parenting Tip:  Prevent Tantrums


It's normal for a toddler to have temper tantrums. But you may be able to reduce the  frequency, duration or intensity of your child's tantrums by following these parenting tips:

  • Know your child's limits. Your child may misbehave because he or she doesn't understand or can't do what you're asking.
  • Explain how to follow the rules. Instead of saying, "Stop hitting," offer suggestions for how to make play go more smoothly, such as "Why don't you two take turns?"
  • Take 'no' in stride. Don't overreact when your toddler says no. Instead, calmly repeat your request.
  • Pick your battles. Only say no when it's absolutely necessary.
  • Offer choices, when possible. Encourage your child's independence by letting him or her pick out a pair of pajamas or a bedtime story.
  • Avoid situations that may trigger frustration or tantrums. If your child always seems to have tantrums at the grocery store, hire a sitter the next time you go shopping. Also know that children are more likely to act out when they're tired, hungry, sick or in an unfamiliar setting.
  • Make it fun. Distract your child or make a game out of good behavior. Your child will be more likely to do what you want if you make an activity fun.
  • Stick to the schedule. Keep a daily routine as much as possible so that your child will know what to expect.
  • Encourage good communication. Remind your child to use words to express his or her feelings. If your child isn't speaking yet, consider teaching him or her baby sign language.

If your child has a tantrum, remain calm and distract him or her. Ignore minor displays of anger, such as crying - but if your child hits, kicks or screams for a prolonged period, remove him or her from the situation. Hold your child or give him or her time alone to cool down.
