KIDS Etc. provides a fun, safe and happy home away from home.

Caring for your children
for over 28 years.

KIDS Etc. Preschool in Sandy Utah has been in business since 1992. Stephani Froisland started the preschool in her home, part-time and in 1994, we grew into the building we are in now. She has since passed on her legacy to her daughter Brook Sutherland and her daughter Malone Sutherland who both run it full time now. Working with children is what we love and helping them learn and grow into intelligent, capable, happy young people is what makes us most proud.

What Our Parents Are Saying

Oh how I love them. How can I count the ways?!? They love my baby (that alone is enough for me) They arrange activities including magicians, gymnastics, water days, snow-cone days, Star Wars day... And whatever other fun activity they can think of. I went through 4 daycares in a year before I found them... And I'm keeping them forever 😘

My kids love this place. My son loves his teachers and has made wonderful friends. My daughter has always struggled with drop off, but her teachers are quick to scoop her up and make sure she feel safe and comfortable. I love the staff, that they know my kids, and have taken the time to understand our needs. Highly recommend.
