HopeCare Children’s Center encourages children to pursue their interests and develop friendships, independence and confidence. A ministry of Hope Lutheran Church, HopeCare is licensed by the State of South Dakota Department of Social Services. Our center is designed to provide a safe, encouraging, and enriching environment for children to learn and have fun each day.

When you join the HopeCare family, your child will grow leaps and bounds with us while we learn through play that God loves each and every one of us. Our teachers promote Christian values through a multitude of learning experiences.

We learn something new each day with hands-on fun and developmentally appropriate activities to enrich our students and give them a solid foundation for their future educational years.
