A Day Without Childcare


On May 13th, many childcare providers across the country, with the support of their families, are shutting down early or closing their doors to draw attention to the national crisis in childcare. The aim of this "Day Without Childcare" is to highlight the true cost of care and demand funding for:


  1. An equitable childcare system focused on racial and gender justice.

  2. Fair wages for childcare providers.

  3. Affordable and accessible childcare for all families.


Pinyon supports these initiatives and is committed to providing an inclusive, equitable, and affordable environment without compromising the quality of education.


We believe childcare workers should be well compensated for their demanding and skilled work. At Pinyon, we aim to provide our staff with a fair and equitable living wage, leading to greater job satisfaction and improved care provision.


In more than half of Utah's counties, families pay between 15% and 20% of their annual income for full time infant and toddler care at licensed childcare facilities, (Voices for Utah Children, 2023). Our tiered tuition model helps families access tuition levels aligned with their financial circumstances.


As we expand our involvement in local efforts to drive change, we'll keep you updated on our progress and how you can get involved.
