We are South Dakota's statewide volunteer association of family child care providers and group home providers whose mission is to empower family child care professionals and achieve high quality care for all South Dakota children.
If you care for children in your home who are unrelated to you, you are a family child care provider. This is an association of people who are doing what you do, every day. We support new providers who are looking for ideas and offer avenues for experienced providers to share their tips and help pave the path to professionalism.
Membership is free

We hope you enjoy this new site as much as the creator of it is enjoying making it. You will see photos of children and activities. We would like more, from you! Print this photo release form
. If you have the parents fill that out, you can either mail it to us or scan and email it, along with the photos, and we can then use them. You can also submit photos that do not show the children's faces and we can use those, too.
