Piute County School District is considering opening a daycare center for all Piute County residents. Piute County is among the oldest and poorest of Utah's 29 counties. In 2019 Piute County was the only county in Utah that experienced declining household incomes. Access to reliable childcare makes a significant difference for young families wanting to move to Piute County and for the current local workforce.

Community feedback is needed to determine the demand and support for adding this service. Please provide whatever feedback you believe would be helpful. The current proposal would place the center close to the high school in Junction and rates for using the center would range between $2.75/hour and $4.75/hour. It is expected the center would be available all 12 months of the year. The center is expected to provide services for children between the ages of 6 months old and 6 years old.
