Governor's Day Care Facility Awarded In Doland

June 8, 2014, 8:00 AM

Governor's Day Care Facility Awarded In Doland
DOLAND, SD -

Gov. Dennis Daugaard announced on Friday that Doland Community Day Care has been granted a Governor’s Day Care Facility.

“There’s a real need for day care in Doland,” Gov. Daugaard said. “Right now, there are no permanent day care facilities or in-home day cares in the community. Families have to spend extra time and money driving to another town for quality day care.”

After conducting a local assessment and holding public meetings, community leaders determined that there was no appropriate facility in Doland to start a day care and that building a new facility would be cost prohibitive. Local leaders then applied for the Governor’s Day Care Facility grant.

“The town cannot hope to attract people to live and work in the community without creating a day care facility,” local resident Amy Hofer said.

The 1,200-square-foot, six-room facilities are built by inmates in the Mike Durfee State Prison in Springfield. The first Governor’s Day Care Facility was awarded in 1997 and 38 communities have benefited from the program.

For more information on the Governor’s Day Care Facility program and how to apply, contact the South Dakota Housing Development Authority at 605-773-3181 or the Department of Social Services’ Office of Childcare Services at 605-773-4766.
