What is One Utah Child Care?
One Utah Child Care is a temporary, emergency child care system available to
healthcare workers and first responders during COVID-19. These essential employees
can receive free child care through the One Utah Child Care system at sites operating
with Emergency Child Care approval from Utah Child Care Licensing. All sites
participating in One Utah Child Care are serving only these employees.
Who will the One Utah Child Care system serve?
The One Utah Child Care system serves the child care needs of essential employees
during the COVID-19 outbreak. Although there are many sectors that include "essential
employees," the two priority sectors for the One Utah Child Care system are:
> Health Care and Public Health
> Law Enforcement, Public Safety and First Responders
For "essential employees" that fall outside of these two sectors, Utah's existing child
care system is available to meet the needs of those employees. Families should contact
careaboutchildcare.utah.gov for assistance in locating an available child care program.
When will One Utah Child Care sites be open?
One Utah Child Care will be open Monday thru Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
