UDWC Informational Park & Visitor Days
UDWC has a maximum enrollment depending on the number of available classes and students enrolled in each grade level. Once website registrations reach that limit, any additional families will be placed on a waitlist and contacted if/when space is available.
ALL families new to UDWC and those who last participated in UDWC in ‘20-‘21 or prior are required to attend one park day or visitor day informational meeting. See calendar below for dates.
You cannot register for classes unless you attend a Park Day or Visitor Day informational meeting. Registration is open early July each year.
Visitor Days - One scheduled each November & March, 9:15-10:15 am: Mountain View Baptist Church, 2585 E 3000 N, Layton, UT 84040.
Park Days - Three scheduled in June/July each summer, 9:00-10:00 am: Grey Hawk Park, 3500 Redtail Way, Layton, UT 84040.
If you would like to attend please scroll down to the Calendar below, click on the day you wish to attend, and sign up.
UDWC is a Parent Participation co-op.
Co-op leadership, in conjunction with course coordinators, determine the course schedule for the year. Parents of students enrolled in the co-op teach the courses.
Additionally, UDWC leadership, in conjunction with course coordinators, determine the total number of Helper Units needed throughout the entire schedule and divide them among all participants. Therefore, parents serve as helpers in courses in addition to/other than those in which their students are enrolled.
Our cooperative is "re-designed" every year as each participating family considers which courses their own children need and what they are willing to volunteer to coordinate. So...the cooperative course offerings change each year.
PAST COURSE EXAMPLES:
Preschool skills, movement and art; Science exploration and lab courses (several from Apologia curriculum) for all grades; Theater Arts; Writing/Composition; Art Studio/Drawing; Physical Education; and much more.
We ask families who choose to participate in this co-op to commit to participation for the full year and regular attendance, missing only due to illness or emergency. We ask families in UDWC to make co-op attendance a priority and schedule family vacations, activities, and appointments on different days. If you cannot commit to regular attendance and participation for the full year, UDWC is not the right co-op for your family.
UDWC is volunteer dependent and the short terms (10 weeks in the fall and 10 weeks in the winter) mean that every week’s materials are very important for students to master materials presented. In addition, withdrawals during the co-op year burden coordinators, teachers, and co-op families with the time-consuming responsibility of filling empty teaching and helping slots.
