Million Dollar Daycare Opening In August

July 29, 2012, 5:45 PM by Michaela Read

Million Dollar Daycare Opening In August
SIOUX FALLS -

There's a new neighborhood in town.

"I think you really have to see it to see how cool it is in here," teacher and parent Jessica Madison said.

In just under a year, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church has expanded its curriculum.

"Good Shepherd has a K-8 education system already and we are adding on to the ministry by having birth to age five," Center Director Rachel Nass said.

A $1.2 million expansion has been added to the church, adding in six cleverly disguised class rooms.

"Each room is a store front, each room is a part of this town square community," Nass said.

From a candy shop to a pet store, the new layout is expected to be a big hit with both children and parents alike.

"I think it's a really neat set up and I love the building and I think the rooms are a really good size there's lots of room," Madison said.

The idea of making the school look like a small town was to help the children feel like they're part of one.

"We're going to be a community, we're going to be working together as teachers, together as children and together as a family," Nass said.

"It's kind of nice for it to feel like one community instead of a bunch of separate rooms," Madison said.

The new early childhood center already has several children signed up to attend. It officially opens on August 20.
