In 1954, Dr. Agnes Plenk founded Holladay Preschool with the mission of providing a safe and nurturing environment where children could experience choice, exploration, and discovery. With the support of Holladay United Church of Christ, the non-profit organization became the first preschool in Salt Lake County.
Holladay Preschool was one of the first branches of ministry established by Holladay United Church of Christ at its inception. The preschool is legally a part of Holladay Church, but operates as a separate unit with its own board, budget, and bank accounts. Holladay Preschool offers a non-sectarian education, welcoming children of all backgrounds, cultures, and faiths.
Now more than 60 years later, Holladay Preschool remains dedicated to a developmentally-appropriate program focused on learning through art, imagination, movement, and play!
