Raising Generations of Ogden Children!

In 1964, Michael and Lucy Morrelli founded the first Children’s Classic Childcare center, formerly known as Children’s World, in a humble 3-bedroom duplex. The small center grew to a 30 children capacity with a large waiting list. In 1965, Children’s Classic was built next door with a licensed capacity of 100 children.

Children’s Classic became a prominent childcare center in Ogden. After several years of success, the second school was built in South Ogden in 1982. In 1989, the center formerly known as Children’s World formed a non-profit corporation now known as Children’s Classic. This would ensure grant funding and opportunities to update and improve the facilities.

 

Meet Our Career Professionals

While other centers seek out competent help, Children’s Classic seeks out individuals who truly love working with children and want to transform that love into a career. We’re staffed by true career professionals. We have 25 employees who have each worked for us for 5 years or more!

Our formula is simple. We show love and appreciation to our team members by giving them training, opportunity and above-industry compensation and benefits. That investment is reflected their devotion and dedication to caring for your children.
