In 1954, Dr. Agnes Plenk, a member of the Holladay United Church of Christ, founded Holladay Preschool. It became a safe and nurturing environment where children could experience choice, exploration and discovery. More than 60 years later, Holladay Preschool remains dedicated to a developmentally-appropriate program, dedicated to learning through art, imagination, movement and play! Our teachers see the child as a whole person; a person with a mind, body, feelings and relationships that all need to be nurtured. Every preschool class shares these goals, as well as similar daily routines. However, each team of teachers determines their own day-to-day curriculum, art projects and activities.

Each day at preschool, children participate in at least five main activities:
