Oldest Preschool In Holladay Builds Legacy Brick By Brick

Early last year, the Holladay Preschool celebrated its 60th year of operation. This year, they are looking to make some much-needed improvements to their heating system and playground area. The community is invited to support these efforts during the Holladay Preschool Family Legacy Brick Campaign.

Students, family members and neighbors can purchase a small brick for $60 or a large brick for $120.

“This year, Holladay Preschool will not be hosting its annual Benefit Bash, an event supported by preschool families and HUCC church members, that normally raises close to $20,000 to support preschool facility improvements,” Preschool Director Kristi Thompson said. Instead, the preschool is offering Legacy Bricks to raise the $20,000. “To date, we have raised just over $4,500. We need help to achieve our goal.”

The campaign runs through the end of April and is open to everyone in the community.

“In April, we will begin the process of engraving and placing family bricks to create a beautiful patio in our courtyard,” Thompson said. “This is a great way to recognize your children, teachers and others who have been a part of Holladay Preschool over the years.”

Holladay Preschool is located at the Holladay United Church of Christ, 2631 East Murray Holladay Road.
