MURRAY EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION CENTER preschool programs are designed to promote the development of the whole child and to offer a wide variety of experiences in the areas of social, emotional, academic and creative growth. 

2020/2021 Information:

We are currently in the process of preparing for the 2020/2021 school year. As the Early Childhood Education Center (ECEC) is a school in the Murray City School District, we will be following all of the Return to School Guidelines, with some Pre-K specific protocols.  We aim to have this information available soon. 

ECEC will not be hosting a Back to School Open House. Information regarding classroom procedures, drop off/pick up, payments, information sharing, etc. will be shared with families via ASPIRE email. Please be sure to register your student on ASPIRE. 

There are limited openings remaining for both 3 and 4 year old classes. ECEC class registration MUST BE completed through Preschool Coordinator Kaydee Fondaco and is on a first-come, first-served basis. Class openings are LIMITED.  Please call or email to inquire about class availability or with any questions.  801-264-7404  kfondaco@murrayschools.org

If you have concerns with your child’s development and would like to schedule a developmental screening, please call or email the ECEC office and leave the requested information.   

ASPIRE 2020/2021 ECEC online registration is now OPEN. This step is required for all special education students, as well as tuition-based students with confirmed class placement. 

If you are unsure about your child’s class placement for 2020/2021 at ECEC, please email Kaydee Fondaco. kfondaco@murrayschools.org

CLASSES BEGIN SEPT. 8th or 9th (based on the class for which your child is registered).  Class times currently remain the same, please watch for changes in the Return to School Guidelines for ECEC.  

If you submitted a 2020/2021 Registration Form for enrollment prior to March 12, 2020, please  read the following:

  • Registration payments have been applied to secure your child’s enrollment at the Murray Early Childhood Education Center Preschool for the 2020/2021 school year. Applied meaning that your spot for the next school year is secured.
  • Cash payments have been applied and processed/deposited. 
  •  In an effort to avoid causing financial difficulties for our ECEC families, payments provided by check will be applied and placed  ON HOLD ( the check will not be deposited at this time and kept locked in a secure place) until further notice. Once we are back to business as usual, I will contact you and have you approve the deposit of that check or issue us a new check.
  • Registration fees attached to March tuition fees have been applied and processed. 
As stated in our registration brochure, these fees are non-refundable and secure your child’s enrollment for next year. We will send more information via email prior to the deposit of these payments.  In the event that there is a prolonged dismissal, we may ask that you provide a new updated check payment.

We are looking forward to having your child here with us in the Fall of 2020!
