Trust In A Legacy Of Care, Dedicated To Orem Families

Established in 1985, The Kids Connection has cared for children in your community for decades. In 2020, we relocated and designed this facility from the ground up with kids in mind, and The Kids Connection went from being licensed for 80 children to 201.
We welcome you to our big, happy family.

An Owner Who’ll Do Whatever It Takes

“This picture has a story. In October 2020, my director, assistant director, cook, and a preschool teacher all tested positive for COVID at the same time. I was opening, closing, cooking, bus driving and keeping the center running as best I could. This picture was taken when I went to get lunch counts from a preschool class; they all just rushed me and gave me a big group hug; it was just what I needed!”
