Nationally, more than 60 percent of households are dual income, resulting in an increased need for early childhood education programming. With both parents working, many children spend their days with a childcare provider. SDSU Extension works with childcare programs and providers to increase school readiness and enhance social, emotional growth and development among South Dakota's youngest citizens.
There is a shortage of rural daycare providers throughout South Dakota. See the resources below or contact Audrey Rider if you are interested in pursuing this exciting and rewarding business opportunity.
