With the arrival of March, the weather will begin to get milder and milder. We are very excited about this. Winter is not quite over yet, but the days are getting longer and the sun is shining more and more. We have spent some qualify time this winter outside, playing in the snow and having fun.

February was an eventful month for Hope Care. We had our Soup & Pie social event, an open house and event Valentine’s Day parties for the children. Hope Care was thrilled to have had so much parent and family participation at all of these events. Thank you all for your support!

If you know someone who is looking for child care, we have full time openings in some of our classrooms. Please have them call 605-367-1108 or reach out via email to hopecaredirector@hopesiouxfalls.org. Don’t forget about referral program. See the parent handbook for more information.

Lastly, join Story Time with children of Hope Care throughout March. Sign up for any open week day at 3:30 p.m. to read to two of our classrooms in the main building and one class in the Sherman Building. The sign-up sheet is in the Narthex. You may bring a book to read or select one of the books recently gifted through the $250 Thrivent grant. These books are located on the cart next to the Sign-Up board. Be sure to check in at the office at the start of the reading.
